1937 BMW 328 Roadster
The oldest car in the Heroes of Bavaria exhibit is a 1937 BMW 328 Roadster — a model BMW produced from 1936 to 1940. BMW wanted this car to win races, and the first 30 of the 434 cars that were built were sold to owners who were already racers. The BMW 328 made its racing debut at the Nurburgring in 1936, where it won the 2.0-liter class; 328s earned more than 100 class wins in 1937. In 1938 the BMW 328 won its class at Le Mans, the RAC Tourist Trophy, the Alpine Rally and the Mille Miglia.
