BMW 3.3 Li

Before BMW was adopted into the big league of luxus salloons and well before the first 7-series, they started the game in 1968 with the E3-model or “new Six”. This was BMW’s first attempt on challenging Mercedes-Benz’s S-class with a large, but much sportier car. The E3 was launch with a 2500 and 2800 engine, but near production end the top of the line was introduced with longer wheel based and fuel injected 3,2 Liter engine. As you see it’s 100 cc less than 3.3 liter, but that’s because it replaced the none injected 3.3L version (3.299 cc) and I guess BMW didn’t want to call the new fuel injected flagship one less than its predecessor. All the L cars had besides the long wheel base also a richer and more luxurious equipements with leather, alloy wheels and more chrome work than the regular E3 BMWs. Production of the E3 seized in 1977, when the first 7-Series was launched. With more than 190,000 units produced it was a fairly successful car. Less than 1% of all produced cars was a 3.3Li, which makes this version an exclusive and disirable BMW.
