The BMW 3200 CS was announced at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show and the first example was built in January 1962. Designed by Bertone 2-door coupe was the final model built on BMW’s early postwar luxury platform which began with the 501, and the first to feature the Hofmeister kink (the forward bend on the back-end pillar) which eventually became the symbol of the brand. The engine chosen for the 3200 was the 3.2-litre OHV V8 which was fed by two carburetors and developed a power of 160hp. During the production which ended in September 1965, BMW built around 600 examples of the 3200 CS. Only one of the cars was built as a convertible for the major shareholder Herbert Werner Quand.
