Amelia Island 2015 – 1937 BMW 328 Mille Miglia Roadster Is Magnificent



Amelia Island 2015 - 1937 BMW 328 Mille Miglia RoadsterPART TWO: The Roadster

The BMW 328 Mille Miglia roadster seem here came before the coupe. It was a stepping-stone between the production 328 cabrio and the Touring Coupe seen in the second half of this page.

The goal was as ultra-light reskin in alloy that would reduce drag, enhance stability at speed, and deliver outstanding performance to take on the best racecars in the world -- and win.

But the side benefit of the 328 Mille Miglia redesign? This roadster is one of the most beautiful silhouettes ever made.

Imagine a single racecar that won the its Nurburgring debut race, the Tourist Trophy, Mille Miglia and RAC Rally. A car so advanced and streamlined, its giant exhaust system is the only portion of the underbody that is not wrapped in lightweight alloy. Even the taillamps are integrated into the lower body with custom alloy stalks, and a license-plate housing that wraps that plate around its ultra-smooth rump.

A coupe so sexy and sensual in person, we are embarassed to report that it is a clear favorite for top-ten cars of all time. Like the Mercedes-Benz 540K Streamliner shown at Pebble Beach -- but lower, leaner and more focused?!

Yes.

Meet the BMW 328 Mille Miglia.
