BMW reintroduces the 328 Kamm Coupe race legend
At the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, the Munich-based premium automobiles manufacturer BMW is about to amaze the crowd with the presentation of its BMW 328 Kamm Coupe, a racing legend lost nearly 60 years ago.
Pure example of how far the development of aerodynamics and lightweight construction had progressed at BMW by this time, this remarkable vehicle represents a seamless mixture of power and aesthetic allures.
Karl Baumer, Director of BMW Group Classic, said, "We are very proud to bring this milestone in motor racing history and vehicle aerodynamics back into the public spotlight. Our tribute to the M1 at the Concorso two years ago showed how much inspiration the past can provide for the future. And the BMW 328 Kamm Coupe is an outstanding example of how far back the future at BMW stretches into the past."
Lost in the troubled times of the post-war era in Germany – 1950s - , the BMW 328 Kamm Coupe has been preparing for its public unveiling since its rebuild began in the mid-1990s.
"We've come up against some major technical challenges, had many discussions and racked up countless hours of research, but when you see the car for the first time you can sense the passion and professionalism invested by all those involved – both all those years ago and today." Karl Baumer added.
