1938 BMW 328 Mille Miglia
March, 2011 § 2 Comments
One of the first roadster from BMW, belonging to a long tradition (315/1, 328, 507 posted here, Z1, Z3, Z4, Z8). This was built specifically to race in the Mille Miglia race, a few years before WWII.
I’m copying u a text from Gizmag that describes the history of the car u see on the pics:
“After the war in 1945, this car was part of the reparation payments and was given to the UDSSR and ultimately to Artiom Ivanovich Mikoyan, head of the Mikoyan i Gurevich Design Bureau, best known as the creator of Russian MiG warplanes. His son used the car and eventually traded it with Mr. Giudo Adamson of Riga for a brand new Lada in 1972. Mr. Adamson kept the car until 2001, when, after the collapse of the “Iron Curtain”, the car was driven from Riga to Munich and stored by BMW in its museum. The current owner bought this important motor car in 2001. A copy of the Büegelfalte was made and now resides in the BMW Museum. ”
