1940 BMW 328 Roadster

The 1940 BMW 328 Roadster was produced from 1936 to 1940. A class winner in Mille Miglia in 1938, in 1940, the Mille Miglia Touring Coupe won the Mille Miglia with an average speed of 166.7 km/h (103.6 mph).

In 2004, the same BMW 328 Mille Miglia Touring Coupe became the first car to win both the Mille Miglia (1940) and the modern-day classical version of the race.

The awesome design was credited to Peter Szymanowski (BMW chief of design after World War II) although technically the car was designed by Fritz Fiedler. The engine was a straight-6 OHV (light alloy cylinder head) 1,971 cc producing 80 PS (59 kW; 79 hp) at 5000 rpm.
