Description

This story of a motorsports glory has begun in 1968. It was a year of triumphs and tragedies. It was the of Prague Spring and Martin Luther King assassination, as well as the first live Led Zeppelin gig. It was also the debut year of BMW E9, known also as the New Six Coupe. In BMW 3.0 CSL form, this chassis proved successful in racing with titles in European Touring Car Championship and Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft. It was successful in Le Mans too with Group 4 class win under its belt as well as some IMSA victories in the USA. Because of its bulging aero kit, BMW 3.0 CSL was nicknamed Batmobile and in this very form, it became the canvas of the first ever BMW art car. We are melted.

This BMW 3.0 CSL Batmobile art is the ultimate visual feast

BMW E9 is delivering aesthetically pleasant presence. In its 3.0 CSL form, it got deeper chin spoiler, rubber fins on the top of the front wings, and huge rear wing bolted on steel trunk because the aluminum could not cope with the downforce. The first Batmobile BMWs were raced with Texaco livery depicted with blue, purple and red stripes, a color scheme that would soon transform into the visual signature of BMW`s newly formed M division. This car has six European touring car titles under its belt and was driven by pilots like Niki Lauda, Ronnie Peterson, Hans Stuck and Sam Posey. It also played a significant role in establishing the BMW legend in the USA by winning some IMSA starts.

The car depicted in this art by Ankur Singh is from this particular modification. Racing #25 was raced in 1975 12 Hours of Sebring. It won five races that year, including Sebring, Riverside, Laguna Seca, Daytona, and Talladega. Quite impressive, isn’t it? Now you can own this BMW 3.0 CSL Batmobile art beautifully created by Ankur Singh and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.
