Adam Carolla is selling his incredible BMW 3.0 CSL Racer

Yep I know it is a MB Forum......but......

Adam Carolla is one of the lesser known celebrity car collectors. He isn’t as big of a name as, say, Jay Leno or Jerry Seinfeld but Carolla has one of the more impressive and exciting collections of cars of all celebrity car enthusiasts. One of his cars is a gorgeous BMW 3.0 CSL race car, one of the most iconic BMWs of all time, and he’s currently selling it.

The ad for Carolla’s BMW 3.0 CSL first popped up on Classic Driver and it lets us in on the car’s pretty interesting history. It started out life as a road-going 3.0 CSL but was converted to race-spec by Heinz-Jorgen Dahmen back in the ’70s. I was an active racing car from 1974 to 2004 and accumulated several victories and podium finishes. At some point during that time, it was bought by then-actor Cullen “Cuffy” Crabbe, who continued to race it. Crabbe eventually converted it to Group 2 racing spec and upgraded the engine.

n 2011, Adam Carolla bought it from Crabbe, to add to his impressive vintage car collection. However, Carolla has never raced it. Although, he has had it professionally maintained and it’s said to start up and run well. Classic Driver even features a short video of it in motion and it sounds fantastic. The 3.0 liter I6 engine sounds devilish and we love it. It also doesn’t sound to have any mechanical issues.

The BMW 3.0 CSL is not only one of the most iconic BMWs of all time but one of the most iconic racing cars from any manufacturer of all time. There isn’t a price listed for the CSL, though don’t expect it to be cheap. It’s going to fetch a pretty penny, thanks to its prestige of its own and the fact that it’s changed celebrity hands a few times. We’re interested in seeing how this car’s sale turns out.
