1975 BMW 3.5 CSL Daytona Racer

This BMW CSL was raced in the Daytona 24-Hour events in both 1978 and 1979. It was restored in 1993 to its 1979 look by MOTOPORTER who is currently selling the car on Ebay. After a full bare metal restoration of the tub and mechanicals it made its debut at the 1993 Monterey Historics. It has competed recently in the VARA and HSR West series.
