Article by Christian Andrei, on May 4, 2012

The iconic BMW 328 vehicle model will be represented with 12 automobiles at the commencement of the Mille Miglia 2012. Together with the series variants, a wide range of racing automobiles will be competing in the lightning trip from Brescia to Rome. The BMW 328 Touring Coupé will head the Bavarian fleet of vehicles. This model was the winning vehicle in 1940. Dr. Herbert Diess will be driving the vehicle.

He is a member of the board of management of BMW AG responsible for development. Diess commented that the BMW 328 establishes benchmarks for automobile aerodynamics and lightweight construction.

The vehicle laid the building blocks for the company's success in this area," he added. Joining Diess on the starting grid is Ian Robertson, who is also a member for the board of management of BMW AG, responsible for marketing and sales at BMW. He stated that a track record of "numerous racing victories" brought the BMW 328 to be one of the most "successful sports vehicles” at the end of 1930s.

At present, the vehicle continues to sum up the character of the BMW brand, he added. The Touring Roadster will also be represented at the Italian heritage race. The BMW 328 Kamm Coupé commemorated its return to the modern Mille Miglia in 2010 and is beginning outside the placings. BMW and the Mille Miglia share a long tradition. On April 28, 1940, the automaker celebrated its largest racing victories up to that point with the BMW 238 Touring Coupé and at the "I. Gran Premio Brescia delle Mille Miglia".
