This summer I was fortunate enough to see two of these 3.0 CSL “Batmobiles”. One was on display at the BMW Museum in Munich, Germany, and the other was actually racing at the Lime Rock Historic Festival. The one in Germany was the first of these “Batmobiles” I had ever seen, and I was nothing short of blown away. I spent around an hour and a half just taking the car in, and I was almost late for my factory tour because of it.
On the track this car sounds phenomenal, I could literally hear it all around the track from one location at Lime Rock. I was told the car that was racing had a 480hp, fully built naturally aspirated inline six, and a only weighed 2300lbs. It was absolutely flying around the track, passing the competition left and right.
Check out the sights and sounds from the track, and see more photos from the museum below. This is a truly stunning car, enjoy.
A couple awesome German cars driving around in the mountains to the tune of some violins. Regular day in a regular life I guess…
I’m not really a fan of ricers or fake kit cars, but for some reason I have to give this credit. Its really well done, and I find it hysterical.
On our way into Monterey, we crossed an intersection, and I caught this just out of the corner of my eye and photographed it out of the window. Gorgeous car, one of only 127 ever made, and worth upwards of $2,000,000. What a way to start the trip.
