This exact car with it's history and performance is the absolute king of the E9's. The 3.5L CSL batmobile with it's 448hp M49 is the undisputed king. And to think that beast of a DOHC 6-cylinder engine was developed in the mid-70's. The sound alone this engine produces is definitely unmatched, even by current race engines. Built for the IMSA Camel GT Group 4 series in 1975 and 1976. It was driven by the racing greats like Hans Stuck, Sam Posey, Brian Redman, Ronnie Peterson, Benny Parsons, Dieter Quester, Peter Gregg and David Hobbs. This number 25 racecar, as seen the last few years of Vintage racing, is currently in the configuration that won the 12 hours of Sebring, as well as the wins at Riverside, Laguna Seca, Daytona and Talladega in 1975.

Neumann #TLM49 large-diaphragm #studio#microphone with a cardioid directional characteristic and a warm sound which is especially optimized for vocal performance. It is supplied as a set, with an elastic suspension.
The design is inspired by that of the legendary #M49 and M50 #microphones of the 1950s. Naturally the TLM 49 has the typical Neumann fine matte nickel finish. The "sound design" is also oriented toward that of the M 49 and the U 47. By combining its retro look with proven Neumann transformerless circuit technology, this microphone ensures low self-noise and the use of high gain levels.
The TLM 49 uses the famous K47 capsule, which was also used in the M49 and the U47. The capsule has a linear frequency response up to the upper mid-range. Above 2 kHz there is a gentle presence boost up to 3 dB. The capsule is enclosed by a large microphone headgrille, which is acoustically very open and is hence neutral with regard to the sound.
The letters TLM stand for "transformerless microphone". With TLM technology the usual output transformer is replaced by an electronic circuit. As with traditional transformers, it ensures good common mode rejection, and prevents RF interference that may influence the balanced audio signal. Noise signals which affect the balanced modulation line are therefore effectively suppressed. The microphone can operate at sound pressure levels of up to 114 dB without distortion, and provides a dynamic range of 102 dB (A-weighted). #myneumann
