will be on display at the
Ritz Carlton Orlando Festivals of Speed
This is chassis #65 from Dallara and represents the culmination of years of research and development by the Italian race car manufacturer to deliver significant safety features for the driver. Outfitted in the livery of one of RLL’s primary sponsors – blu eCigs, this was the actual car driver by Graham Rahal in each of the road & street course races during the 2014 season including St. Pete FL, Long Beach CA, Barber Motorsports Park AL, Belle Isle Detroit MI, MidOhio Sports Car Course, Baltimore GP, Sonoma CA.
1965 Shelby Ford Mustang serial # SFM5S588
This is the fourth from last GT350 made in 1965 currently owned by Bobby Rahal. The 1965 Shelby GT350 was a “homologation special” where enough were built to qualify the car for SCCA racing in the B Production class. Under Shelby American’s stewardship, the GT350 was a huge success, winning many races and Championships over the years. Today, the ’65 GT350 is considered the most important of the Shelby Mustangs given its’ race track modifications as standard equipment. These modifications included an up-rated 289 c.i. V-8 producing 306 h.p., stiffer Koni dampers, a Detroit “locker” rear end, deletion of the rear seat and side-pipe exhausts among other tweaks. This car was originally bought new by a Revell Models employee from Riverside, CA. He retained ownership until approximately four years ago when it was purchased by Bobby Rahal. It was then restored by Don Hoevel Restorations of Foxlake, IL. This car retains its original engine and transmission as well as all other components with the exception of the doors which makes this car truly exceptional. Come see it at Festivals of Speed.
1973 BMW 3.0 CSL “Batmobile”
Only 151 ’73 3.0 CSLs were ever built
1973 BMW 3.0 CSL “Batmobile”
Only 151 ’73 3.0 CSLs were ever built
Owned by Bobby Rahal. Only ”homologation” specials were built by BMW from 1972 – 1974 in order to qualify the car for the FIA’s European Car Touring Car Championship. Built of lightweight gauge steel with aluminum doors, bonnet and trunk lid, this car also featured the deletion of soundproofing and standard trim. The engine was increased in capacity from 3.0 liters to 3.15 producing over 200 h.p.in street tune. Aerodynamically, strakes on the front of the car coupled with a large rear wing and roof-mounted tuning vane gave this car the term “Batmobile.” With such equipment standard but un-installed as cars left the factory due to German highway transport laws, most cars were seen without such aerodynamic aids, but on the race track the Batmobile was invincible, winning many races including a class win at Le Mans.
Enjoy these Fine Spirits at Festivals of Speed.
