Painstakingly created over a five-yearperiod by itsprevious owner, 4BYJ is based on a 1973 BMW CS shell prepared with enormousattention to detail and a very high standard of workmanship. The engine is an M30 Alpina B10 unit, overhauled by Fritz's Bits of Somerset andthis is mated to a five-speed Getrag dog-leg gearbox. An aluminium boot, bonnet and doors have been fitted, together with Image wheels, a Sideloader LSD, Brembo front brakes,a ducted side exhaust, new windscreen and rubbers, plumbed-in fire extinguisher, ATL fuel cell to FIA standard FT3-1999 (with a Certificate of Conformancevalid until 2022), OMP race seat (in compliance with FIA standard 8859-1999), racing harness and a Custom Cages roll cage.Our vendor, a well-known collector and historic racing driver bought the Batmobile from its previousowner, who commissioned the initial build, and has painstakinglygone through this wonderful machine duringhis ownership andthe results are clear to see. Interestingly, going through the history file, there issome correspondencebetween our vendor and the MSA as to the car's potential eligibility forFIA papers. Our vendor informs usthat hes been advisedthat there are fiveminorareas that would need to be addressedin order to potentially obtain an FIA HTP.1. Change the bell housing for the period-correct item.2. Change the clutch slave cylinder.3. Change the distributor4. Change the Brembo calipers for original BMW parts5. The exhaust should not be recessed into the bodywork and a small section of the floor would need to be returned tomanufacturer's spec.Our vendor has preferred to use this fabulous replica for road useduringhis ownership and he is generously including the cherished private plate 4 BYJ in the sale. Finished in Chamonix Whitewith the classic 'M Sport' stripes in Process Blue, Purple 268 and Warm Redand sounding fabulous, this fantastic homage to the iconic Batmobile would cost considerably over 100k to replicate today. Accompanied bythe aforementioned history file, correspondencewith the MSA, along with itsUK V5C, Silverstone Auctions are proud to offer this superbly craftedhomage to one of the most legendary Touring CarsinBMWs history.For those of us ofa certain age, there is a huge amount of appeal in being able to enjoy a serious'track day' on a Thursday at Silverstone in a gorgeous, well-sorted,E9 'Batmobile' and 'burble up' in the same car at your favourite pub on a Sunday lunchtime.Video of the1973 BMW 3.0 CSL 'Batmobile' Group 2 EvocationVideo of the 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL 'Batmobile' Group 2 Evocationhttps://youtu.be/q_FSdQIEfNQtrue
