1939 BMW 327/328 Coupe


(from BMW Press Release)  The new BMW 6 Series Coupe is a part of the tradition of iconic classic cars which changed automobile design forever and even today has lost nothing of its fascination. Its line of ancestry begins with the BMW 327 Sport Coupe, honoured as the Coupe of the Year in 1937, which thrilled and delighted with its flawless elegance and is judged to be the most exclusive BMW model to be produced before the war. In contrast to the 55 hp engine which was very powerful for the time, from 1938 onwards, the BMW 327/28 was fitted with the 80 hp sports engine from the legendary BMW 328 Roadster. This formed the basis for a sports coupe with, by the standards of the day, ultra-light aluminium bodywork with which BMW was placed first in the overall ranking in the legendary Mille Miglia long distance race in 1940.
