These BMW 328 roadsters are models of cars of the German manufacturer BMW which were built between 1936 and 1940 and were designed by Kurt Joachimson. Featuring a powerful 2-liter 6-cylinder engine, the 328 roadster was the most successful race car on the European racetrack in the 1930s. Conceived originally for motor sport, the 328 BMW won its first competition on June 14, 1936, at the Nürburgring racetrack.
