1975 BMW 3.0 CSL Batmobile Needs Cash Crusader

Crossing the RM Sotheby’s auction block next month

Not all Batmobiles are black and driven by caped crusaders. This pristine 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL happens to be Chamonix Metallic White and is one of the just 167 Batmobiles ever built.

The car will cross the block at RM Sotheby’s Monaco 2018 sale in May along with several other choice BMWs and other marques.

It appears to be in original condition and wears the Batmobile aerodynamics kit that includes a front air dam, short roof spoiler, and a wild looking three-piece rear wing.

The interior looks clean and features original black and red Scheel sport seats and the original three-arm steering wheel. Also, to sweeten the deal, the engine numbers match and there’s approximately only 24,278 miles on the clock.

Records indicate that it was built in the summer of 1973, spent much of its early days in Spain, and was not was not registered until 1975 by the first owner.

Ten years later it moved back to Germany and remained there until 2007. It was sold and returned to Spain once again and reportedly received a complete service in Barcelona by an expert racing mechanic. The auction house states that the auto was purchased by its current owner in 2013.

As one of 110 first series Batmobiles built, it should go to some lucky billionaire playboy or girl for big bucks when it is auctioned in Monaco next month.
