1974 BMW 3.5 CSL IMSA

RM Sotheby’s Monterey in 2019 saw the auction of the endurance race-winning 1974 BMW 3.5 CSL IMSA -- one of only five ever made. This particular one is even rarer again, being the only one of that five to have never been raced.

Inspired by the classic 3.0 CSL, this BMW featured in the 1975 IMSA Camel GT season and the 1975 12 Hours of Sebring, winning the latter.

The 3.5 CSL is widely regarded as the greatest influence on BMW North America’s early success. Henry Schmitt of BMW San Francisco frequently showcases his own at various Concours d’Elegance today.
