ORIGINAL REPORT

An extremely rare vintage BMW race car and trailer were stolen from a Colorado Springs man over the weekend.

Local BMW company Winslow BMW is asking the public for help in locating it.

"This vehicle is very rare and has been painstakingly restored and exhibited in shows and races around the country," the company said in a statement Monday. "It also represents a very important piece of BMW heritage, as it is one of only 200 ever built."

The car is 1965-model 1800 Ti SA. Its VIN number is 995013.

The trailer is a 23-foot white box trailer with a "RPMMotorsports" logo on the front and a "BMW Motorsport Historic" logo on the side.

The trailer may have been spotted Sunday night on Highway 285 in the Conifer/Evergreen area. Winslow BMW says it may still be in Colorado but heading east or west on I-70.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Colorado Springs Police Department right away.
