Constructors’ championship

The BMW 3.0 CSL, of course, undergoes continuous development and optimization throughout its racing career. Starting from 1974, the race variant of the 3.0 CSL produces 324 kW (440 PS) with an increased displacement to 3,498 cm³ and a four-valve cylinder head. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds and reaches a top speed of 275 km/h. At the fourth race, the "Grand Prix of Touring Cars" at the Nürburgring, the anti-lock braking system (ABS) is being introduced, a world premiere. The BMW 3.0 CSL adds three victories and a total of eleven podium finishes over the six season races to its achievements. This secures BMW the manufacturer's title once again for the year.
