In 1937, the BMW 327 made its debut as a cabriolet, signaling a significant departure from its predecessor, the 326, in terms of design and capabilities. This new model exuded a sense of elegance and allure with its sleek and sensuous aesthetics.
Meticulously crafted by skilled artisans, the body panels were meticulously shaped and positioned, creating a graceful form that appeared to be in motion even when stationary. While the 327 shared certain mechanical elements with the 326, it boasted refined performance. Its inline-six engine enabled the car to achieve a respectable top speed of 125 km/h.
BMW didn’t stop there but took it a step further by offering buyers of the 327 the option to equip the M328 engine from the renowned 328 sports car. This enhancement further elevated the performance capabilities of the 327, resulting in a variant known as the 327/28. It is believed that only 569 units of this exceptional model were ever produced.
