This BMW 328 is a special example with German delivery, an interesting and well-documented history and a sportive special body mady by Weinberger, Munic.
The BMW 328 undoubtedly is one of the most beautiful and successful sports cars of all times. Due to its many outstanding features, it soon turned into a legend. Its sporty six-cylinder-inline-engine with a capacity of two liters made for 59kW/80 PS. This combined with the vehicle’s low weight and the very good chassis and suspension resulted in great performance and many successes in motor sports. The modern concept of the 328 relevantly helped to establish the reputation of BMW as a manufacturer of sports cars. Until the late 1950, the model was successfully entered into competition by private persons, small-batch producers and others.
In total, BMW built a few more than 460 cars. Around 403 were delivered with the standard type body. Around 59 exemplars where delivered as “chassis only”, following the clients’ wish to have an exclusive body built by a well-known body technician.
