Alpina update: Bespoke BMW E9 CSL Batmobile Rollcage

We made a bespoke roll cage for this BMW E9 CSL race car. The cage is made from 45mm CDS tubing to FIA regulations. The reason this car required a bespoke roll cage is because it is an original car with period history. In period, the car raced with an aluminium roll cage. However, we can’t use aluminium roll cages anymore. The new bespoke roll cage was made to resemble the original and to use the original mounting locations. This way we don’t have to disturb the history of the car.

As well as the bespoke BMW CSL roll cage we built for this car we also supply and fit the Custom Cages Historic T45 roll cage.

Alpina update: subframes etc

Some good progress has been made on the Alpina CSL. Both the front and the rear subframes had stress fractures in them. We blasted them, welded the cracks, reinforced the areas and painted them in there original colours. The original shock absorbers have been off to Bilstein to be rebuilt. We specifically asked them not repaint the bodies as we want this car to retain as much of its originality as possible. If something doesn’t need painting it will simply be cleaned and put back on the car. The fuel, coolant and oil lines have been reinstated as well.
