Car Throttle takes the iconic BMW E9 3.0L CSL Batmobile for a spin. The BMW E9 3.0 CSL was produced from 1968 to 1975. The 3.0 CSL is considered the first project by the BMW M division.

The car was a lightweight, 3003cc sports model of the 3.0 coupe. Special racing models with 3.2-liter (340 hp/253 kW) and 3.5-liter (430 PS) engines and aerodynamic trimmings helped establish BMW as a premier racing team.

In 2015, the 3.0 CSL is a legend and part of BMW’s history forever.
