1938 BMW 328 Roadster

In 1938 came the first major comparison between Alfa Romeo and BMW at the Mille Miglia, and was BMW’s first attempt at this famous race. Four factory stock cars lined up on the starting grid. The Briton A.F.P. Fane won hands down in the twolitre class with a BMW 328, while BMW came 8th, 10th, 11th and 12th in the overall rankings. The breakthrough had finally come: alongside Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz, BMW had now developed to become the third most important manufacturer of racing cars in Germany. Winner in the 2l-class Mille Miglia 1938. Driver: Alfred F.P. Fane, William James. Gateway Europe. Length: approx. 20 cm.
