  7. Are you sure,450hp?
     
  8. It seems like the racing version could get up there - wish I had a couple :oops:

    On the motor racing side, the CSL won 6 championships in European touring car racing (in 1973, 75, 76, 77, 78 and 79). The racing version had its 3.2 engine tuned to 340 horsepower, and later upgraded to a dohc 24V 3.5-litre good for 480 hp. The Group 4 CSL even employed a 3.2 dohc 24V turbo engine with 750 hp and 212 mph top speed ! they beat the contemporary Porsche 911 RSR and 935 and set the brightest record in the company's motorsport history.

    Were there any weaknesses? yes, the Karmann built body was notorious for rusting, so never drive the CSL in rain.
