Description

FOR SALE; UK RHD CSL // Body restoration just completed to Batmobile look.

EQUIPMENT
Rhd UK City Pack, Batmobile Aero package, Period race seats, Electric windows, PAS, Alloy wheels, Aluminium bonnet, boot lid and door skins.

EXTERIOR
This jaw dropping CSL Batmobile recreation is finished in Chamonix White, a classic and beautiful period BMW colour, perfectly suited to this homologation special and one of only two colours used for the first phase of 3.2L Batmobiles, the other being Polaris Silver. The paint work is first class having just rolled out from a 2 year body restoration here in the UK.

The car is a genuine UK supplied Rhd CSL City pack car, its original colour being Taiga Green. This was completely stripped to a bare shell and rebuild to the owners required Batmobile specification. As such it stands as new with the iconic wing, roof hoop, front air-dam and wing spoilers all sitting proudly on the body work. All of the chrome work presents in excellent order, rubber seals replaced and glass crystal clear. The headlights are brand new as are the indicator lens and chrome work nestled onto the side of both front wings.

The theme continues underneath, equally clean and as good to look at as above with all components treated and if necessary rebuilt. A worthy finish for such a successful touring car.

INTERIOR
The interior in a BMW E9 coupe is like none other, beautifully laid out with lashings of wood trim it is a wonderful place to be. Much like the exterior, no piece has been left from attention inside. Anything replaced has been done so with careful consideration and attention to detail.. The punched black headlining specific to the CSL has been replaced, as has the carpet, speckled in colour, more often than not just replaced with black cloth.

Slide into the brand new period race seats and it’s obvious this is a special car. Factory door seals and window seals have all been renewed and the plastic carpet covers (all too easily broken or lost) are still present and in excellent order.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 3.0L engine fitted has been checked, serviced and refurbished where necessary by its UK restorer. Many surrounding components have been replaced or refurbished in keeping with the fresh restored theme of the car.

The gearbox again checked and refurbished where necessary with bushes and linkage renewed that becomes clearly obvious when out on the road with a tight and positive shift.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The period 16 inch wheels are refurbished and present as new with Alpina centre caps, new stickers and wheel bolts. Wrapped in good rubber all round with plenty of tread the multi spoke alloys hide refurbished calipers, discs and pads all round.

HISTORY FILE
First registered in April 1973 this UK supplied CSL was manufactured by BMW in Taiga Green and as a Rhd UK city pack car.

Used regularly by its first owner which is documented by a file full of early invoices it was then sold by British Car Auctions in 1976 of which the transaction is recorded and the mileage reading 43,644. The second owner kept the car for an incredible 40 years before it ended up in the hands of the current owner who has spent lavishly restoring it to its current Batmobile specification.

On file is a full photographic album of the restoration from start to finish showing the intense and lengthy effort that has been lavished on this historic BMW touring car.
