    57/57 of the Bats, is the owner already here? Can he/she post or elaborate more about this coupe.....?

    Spotted post on 2002 FB page -- worth a share IMHO

    Hi Mo,
    I remember this Bat for sale about 8 years ago in Freiburg at (just before the Csl boom started) and then getting a 100%, all new panels etc restoration by Dieter Tôgel in Wiesbaden. I thought the car was going to the Middle East after the resto, but evidently not. It sold then, before restoration for less than what some CSI’s cost today.

    Keshav,

    I believe this car is now in the US -- see more pictures in garage alongside M1 --

    Fit & finish look really good.

    Actually.......note the CSL strip on the quarter -- thin by the door & thick by the rear lights.....

    might be a fraction lower, also depends on the angle you are looking at........

    Aw Mo, that wouldn’t make #57 any the less. :)
    But why do you think it’s in the US? You know with whom (don’t reveal;) ) I see no US tell tail signs, or am I missing something.

    License plate frame appears to be from The Werk Shop and is fit for a US plate.

    Got it....... I see the/ a red M1 and a Polaris Bat..... but not this one, which doesn’t mean a lot.

    Here’s another one where this Bat was initially for sale in Freiburg.

    From original post on Facebook it appears to be a friend of a 2002 owner & I think they both live in the middle of the country-- not East or West coast that is.....

    If I recall (been over 25 years since) correctly, they are channels inside to guide the airflow.

    i wonder how they make torque without longer intake runners.... we had only 240 NM with just the Webers/inlet trumpets. With the longer intake runners we had again the 300 NM.
