Car description

BMW

3.5 CSI convertible "Turbo"

Year of construction 1974

This vehicle is a sensation. The Karmann company built the E9 Coupe’s for BMW from 1968 to 1975. During this time, Karman designed an E9 convertible as a model and presented it to BMW. However, this idea was not well received by BMW, because a finished 02 convertible was already ready on the market. A decade later, Jürgen Dreschel took up this idea again and developed a BMW E9 convertible. Dreschel was certainly inspired by the first German E9 convertible, which was built in Cologne in 1969. But he wanted it to be even more perfect and so he spended in his version the convertible top from the E30. He offered this kit to other Coupé friends and so 7 more Dreschl convertibles were built over time.

But that's not all, the Dreschl Cabrio also found space for the engine, gearbox and axles from the 745i turbo and with a little fine-tuning, he lifted this convertible to almost 300 hp. The Oldtimer-Praxis reported in detail in its 1991 edition.

In the meantime, BMW has also given its blessing for this conversion. No. 2 is currently in the Technik Museum in Sinsheim and the history of this convertible is also explained here.

Dreschl, known as an engineer, also gave his convertible a full leather interior with heated Recaro sports seats, electric windows, modernized VDO instruments, automatic roof, central locking, cruise control, on-board computer, air conditioning, sound system, BBS rims, stainless steel exhaust system. He himself called it "One of the most beautiful convertibles that BMW has never built".

The handling of this convertible is impeccable. The ingenious reinforcements convey a feeling of security in every situation. The turbo engine is brute, the soundscape is simply terrific.

In addition, there is an extensive library on the history of this convertible. All correspondence with BMW, construction drawings and documentation about this vehicle.

If anything, this BMW 3.5 CSI Turbo Cabriolet would only be given to a serious enthusiast with sufficient proof of funds. This vehicle, steeped in history, is nowhere else on the market.
