The BMW 328, introduced in 1936 was instrumental in securing many successes for BMW in pre-war motor sport competition. Designed by Fritz Fiedler, it featured many advanced features for its time, such as a tubular space frame and a hemispherical combustion chamber engine. Much praised at the time for its performance and handling, proving to be highly versatile for both road and track. The 328 won many races, including the Mille Miglia ? a class win in 1938 and the outright winner in 1940. It also won the RAC Rally in 1939 and came in fifth overall (first in its class) in the 1939 Le Mans 24 hours. Chassis 095 was completed on 26th June 1937 and delivered, via Automag, to the coachbuilders Weinberger for a special body to be fitted which was just slightly wider than the standard body. After the hostilities, 85095 was put into storage until in the 1960's when it was sold by the government as unclaimed property. 095 stayed in Europe whereupon it was acquired by the famous brain surgeon and renowned American collector Dr Fred Simeone who retained the BMW for a quarter of a century. Currently forming part of a significant North American collection, this lovely BMW 328 has been sympathetically refreshed and has been used on many local rallies and tours and is currently available in our showroom.á
