Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, usually known under its abbreviation BMW, is a luxury vehicles, motorcycle, and engine manufacturing company founded in 1916.

The BMW Art Car Project was introduced by the French racecar driver and auctioneer Hervé Poulain, who wanted to invite an artist to create a canvas on an automobile.

Commissioned in 1979, the Frank Stella BMW M1 Procar was painted to Stella's Polar Coordinates design and created for Stella's close friend, race-car driver and champion, Peter Gregg. When Gregg and Stella were together at Daytona in 1979, Stella created the design specifically for Gregg's M1. This was the only time that a BMW-commissioned artist created a car for anyone other than the manufacturer itself.

The 2800CS was replaced by the 3.0 CS and 3.0 CSi in 1971. The engine had been bored out to give a displacement of 2,986 cc (182.2 cu in), and was offered with a 9.0:1 compression ratio, twin carburettors, and 180 horsepower (130 kW) at 6000 RPM in the 3.0 CS or a 9.5:1 compression ratio, Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection, and 200 horsepower (150 kW) at 5500 RPM in the 3.0 CSi.

The L in the designation meant leicht (light), unlike in other BMW designations, where it meant lang (long). The lightness was achieved by using thinner steel to build the unit body, deleting the trim and soundproofing, using aluminium alloy doors, bonnet, and boot lid, and using Perspex side windows. The five hundred 3.0 CSLs exported to the United Kingdom were not quite as light as the others, as the importer had insisted on retaining the soundproofing, electric windows, and stock E9 bumpers on these cars.
