BMW 3.0 CSL

A 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL will take centre stage. This homologated retort to Ford’s dominance of the European Touring Car Championship formed the basis of the M motorsport badge on every high-performance BMW since the M1 supercar went on sale in 1978.

The CSL featured a lightweight body using thin-gauge steel and a bonnet, boot and doors made from aluminium, while the standard car’s 2.8-litre engine was bored out to 3.0 litres to compete in the 3.0-litre division of the sport.

The CSL went on to dominate, taking the championship five times in a row from 1975 to 1979.

Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

The Ford Sierra RS Cosworth is another classic steeped in motorsport folklore, and we’ll have a 1989 example on hand for you to ogle over.

The Sierra was the first Ford to wear the Cosworth badge and was built to homologate the car for the Group A World Touring Car Championship, taking six pole positions on the trot in its opening year in 1987.

Based on a three-door Sierra body shell, the Cosworth was powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine that – unlike the later four-wheel-drive Escort Cosworth – spun the rear wheels.

The car would claim numerous successes in international motorsport but is perhaps better known for being the world’s first blue-collar performance car.

Porsche 356 Speedster

The third car on the GCS stand – a 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster – is a different kettle of fish altogether.

Introduced in 1954, it was the brainchild of American Porsche Importer, Max Hoffman, who recognised his home market’s demand for a lightweight open-top sports car.

With a removable windscreen, simple folding roof and bucket seats, the 356 was seen as the ideal weekend racer and is seen by many as the iconic 1950s sportscar.

The Porsche proved a particular hit in the sunnier climes of California. In all, just 36,767 examples were ever built.
