Back in June I took a look at the roadgoing version of the CSL ‘Batmobile’ – well, at least a replica of one:

The CSL race cars lived an interesting life. Technically they began as Group 2 cars, which were modified street cars. However, they were also born in the middle of radical revisions to the rules and emerging technology. They raced in the European Touring Car Championship, later in Group 4, and also had even more wild bodywork to enter into Group 5. This one appears to be more the Group 2/ETCC bodywork, but it has the a later 3.5 motor like a Group 4 car would. Of course, with a replica it’s not necessarily about being 100% correct but what looks neat, and this certainly does. If you want a real Batmobile, especially a race winning example, you’re looking at big money – a Group 5 winner will set you back over a million dollars. This one is far from cheap, but if you like the look and don’t mind it not being an exact replica, it sure looks like a fun toy.
