To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' London event, 24 October 2019.

Offered from the Youngtimer Collection
Recent comprehensive restoration

BMW’s decision to stretch the wheelbase of the “New Six” or E3 chassis, which had been on sale since 1968, was in direct riposte to Mercedes-Benz’s launch of their W116 S-Class in 1972. Based upon the highly rated E3 3.0S, the resulting 3.3 Li featured the same chassis lengthened by four inches and a stroked six-cylinder engine to achieve the capacity increase to 3.3 litres. Power of 190 bhp was available at 5,500 rpm, and the additional torque on offer ensured that progress was swift and effortless, especially when channelled through the standard four-speed automatic gearbox. Indeed, despite being smaller than the S-Class in absolute terms, the 3.3 Li was more than a match in terms of luxury, boasting air-conditioning, leather upholstery, electric sunroof, and first-class stereo as standard.

This 3.3 Li was produced in 1975 and specified in Anthracite Grey Metallic paint with tan leather interior and wooden trims. It presents in fantastic condition outside, inside, and underneath, largely thanks to a comprehensive restoration undertaken in Germany in 2014. It was acquired by its current owner soon after the work had been completed and has since covered less than 1,000 km. It is accompanied by original sales brochures, owner’s manuals, complete toolkit, and a detailed log of all works undertaken since the completion of the restoration. This would be a fine addition to any BMW collection or equally as a stand-alone classic.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
