Chassis No: 85034 Engine No: 85034 -0- BMW’s emergence as a manufacturer of fine sporting motor cars can be traced back to the annual Eifelrennen event held at the Nürburgring on 14th June 1936, when Ernst Henne beat a field that included 1½-litre monoposto racing cars driving the prototype of what would become one of the most iconic sports cars of all time – the legendary ‘328’. The fact that this overwhelming victory had been achieved only eight years after BMW’s establishment as an automobile manufacturer is all the more remarkable. Lacking the resources of their larger and longer established rivals, BMW had adopted a ‘mix and match’ approach to model development. Thus the 328 employed the tubular chassis, transverse-leaf independent front suspension and live rear axle of the 319; the cylinder block and hydraulic brakes of the 326; and a body incorporating stylistic elements of the 319/1 Sport and 329. With the 328, BMW’s Chief Engineer Fritz Fiedler turned accepted chassis design on its head, coming up with a frame that combined lightness and stiffness in equal measure – virtues that permitted the use of relatively soft springing with all its attendant advantages.

It was built on a light weight tubular chassis and fitted with a low profile stylish body with faired in headlights and solid disc wheels. The steering was rack and pinion, the brakes hydraulic, the front suspension was independent and the gearbox had synchromesh. The 328’s six-cylinder engine featured an ingenious cylinder head with hemispherical combustion chambers and inclined valves without recourse to overhead, or twin camshafts. This was the first truly modern sportscar and the Aldington Brothers whose Frazer Nash company sold BMW’s in Britain were quick to see the potential of this model for their sporting clientele. In fact the third prototype was a right hand drive model that H.J. Aldington and A.F.P. Fane drove in the 1936 French Grand Prix. The same car covered 102 miles in an hour at Brooklands in the hands of journalist racer, Sammy Davis In total the factory built 464 cars of which 45 were built to special order with right hand drive and marketed as the Frazer Nash BMW. This car was delivered to a Mr. W.R. Handley in Newcastle on 1st July 1938 and subsequent owners i
