This BMW E9 3.0 CSL art print presents one of the coolest racing cars of all times. The designer of the base car is Wilhelm Hofmeister. Maybe you have heard his name before. That's the person whom we owe the signature kink on the back windows of nearly all BMWs in the last year 50 years.


The power of the M30 6-cylinder engine

The BMW E9 body's initial production takes place from 1968 to 1975. At first, it has a longer hood to accommodate a bigger 2.8-liter, 6-cylinder engine, replacing the 4-cyl in the 2000CS.

In 1971 the M30 engine is bored out to 3-liters. Thanks to that and to two carburetors the power jumps to 180 hp at 5500 rpm. It is evident to many fans that the M30 engine may soon dominate the European tracks.


The racing career of BMW E9 3.0 CSL

BMW 3.0 CSL debutes in 1972 and gets a racing approval in the European Touring Car Championship. The letter "L" in its name stands for leicht/light. The thinner body steel, eliminated trim and soundproofing, alloy panels in the doors, bonnet and trunk, combined with Perspex side windows achieve the low weight of the car.

The racing version of the BMW 3.0 CSL wins the European Touring Car Championship in 1973 and nails a class win at Le Mans. This race car keeps on winning the ETCC every single year between 1975 and 1979. And that's enough to be said for its true Bavarian power. Some of the ETCC cars are converted and raced up until 1979, and they manage to win numerous races including Daytona 24 in 1979. During the IMSA GT Championship in 1975, Ronnie Peterson wins several races. 

The Batmobile nickname comes because of an aerodynamic kit introduced in 1973.


BMW Batmobile collage


A pop art icon

The racing history of this vehicle is truly spectacular. We cannot miss the fact that the BMW 3.0 CSL Batmobile race car is the base for the notorious art cars of the Bavarian brand. They are the first of their kind worldwide and are created by the American artists Alexander Calder and Frank Stella. Later on, these art cars find their place on the racetrack. They achieve such a huge success that the Bavarian brand decides to continue with this initiative. The rest is history.

Michal Wojtaszek

Born and raised in Poland, my lifelong passion for cars and automobile design led me to study Transportation Design at Pforzheim University in Germany. Since graduation, I've worked as a freelance designer for esteemed clients in the automobile industry, including Qoros Auto, Bentley Motors, and Mercedes-Benz AMG. During my studies, I had the privilege of a year-long internship and Master Thesis project at the Porsche Advanced Design Studio in Weissach.

This transformative experience fulfilled my dream of professional car design and equipped me with extensive knowledge for future projects. I believe that understanding the rich heritage and history of automobiles is crucial for shaping the vehicles of tomorrow. Inspired by classic cars that mark significant milestones in automotive development, I express my passion through a series of digital sketches. Each artwork aims to capture the unique character of these influential cars, experimenting with colors and techniques to enhance their defining features. I
