BMW 3,0 S
BMW is the greenhorn in the upper class where traditionally Mercedes is well established. Since 1968 there is the large sedan starting with 2.5 liters of cubic capacity, steadily growing thereafter. Power is in demand and in combination with the dynamical car body the sales success is established.
The most important feature is probably the traditional six-cylinder in line engine. It is famous due to its miraculous sound. But it is powerful, too. Already the 2.8-litre version cracks the magical 200 km/h border. Important for its prestige is also the good acceleration. The 3.0 S shown above is followed by the SI with D-Jetronic.
Disadvantageous about the car is the relatively scarce space on the rear seats. In this class you should take managers and politicians into account who enjoy to be driven by a chauffeur. But BMW reacts quickly and introduces a long version. The E3 is built until 1977.
