328 is a sports car made by BMW between 1936 and 1940. The body was designed by Peter Szymanowski, who was BMW chief after WW2. It had a smooth, aerodynamic shape that was designed for racing.
It featured a straight-6 OHV engine with a light alloy cylinder head. The displacement was
1,971 cc (1.971 L; 120.3 cu in) with a 66 mm (2.6 in) Bore × 96 mm (3.8 in) Stroke. The
compression ratio was 7.5:1. It used 3 Solex 30 JF downdraft carburetors.
The transmission was a 4-speed Manual. The chassis was an aluminum body with a steel ladder frame. The front suspension was a swing axle with transverse leaf springs and the rear suspension utilized a live axle with leaf springs. The top speed was advertised as 150 km/h (93 mph).
The 328 was introduced at the Eifelrennen race at the Nürburgring in 1936, where it won its class in the race. It won many other races in the late 30s and early 40s, such as the RAC Tourist Trophy, the Alpine Rally, and the Mille Miglia. It even got first in class in the prestigious 1939 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The manufacturing plant in Eisenach where the 328 had been built fell under Soviet control after WW2. Production resumed, but the factory was under state control until reunification in 1989.
