BMW Museum, Pt. II

Last time it was the bikes. Now onto the cars (mostly)...

1930 3/15 PS:

In van configuration, only two seats and a cargo area.
This example did duty as the BMW plant's customer service vehicle

Passenger version, basically an Austin Seven, manufactured under license: 

1934 315/1:
 


1936 328:
 
 
 spare wheel, drilled for lightness

1939 328 Superleggera
This example was built to compete in the 1939 24 Hours of LeMans. The car won the two liter class and was an overall winner of the 1940 Mille Miglia.
it appears that they still bring the car out to use in select vintage events

Yet another 1939 328:
Munich Special
 
And now a 327/8 in stock, coupe form:
 
 
 
 hood vent detail
 

 perched taillight

1937 327 Sports Convertible:
 
 
  
And into a (slightly) more modern age. 1955 502 Coupé:
"An opulent vehicle, made for gentlemen"
note the St. Christopher wheel center
 

1956 503 Coupé. Far more sporting than the precedent 502:

  "An elegant vehicle, for the economic miracle"

The iconic 1955 Isetta "bubble car":
 about a bajillion times cooler than a modern smart car
 
 

The always-stunning 1956 507:

Elvis owned one of these beauties
 
fantastic color combo
The awkward-yet-geeky-cool 1964 700:

1965 2000 CS, the Neue Klasse Coupé:

1966 2000 TI racer:
 
 
1966 1600:
...which beget the 2002 and the entire 3-series:

And speaking of the 2002, 1966 Inka Orange 2002TI:

Stunning 1971 3.0 CSi:

Stack o' 70s sedans:

The legendary M1, BMW's first (only?) supercar:
weird wheels, but I love the style
these were relative flops in the day, selling less than 500 examples over the car's lifespan

E28 M5, a sleeper sedan that was powered by the M1's silky smooth straight six engine:

The much-loved E30 M3, this one in top-spec Sport Evolution guise:
 
only 600 Sport Evolutions were made, built with a hotter 2.5l six

E30 325ix wagon, the US sadly never received the E30 wagons:

Another modern BMW never officially imported to the States was the funky Z1 roadster:
note the doors that lower into the bodywork

E24 6-series, the first and the best:

Compare the athletic elegance above with this ugly 1999 Z9 GT show car...
...afflicted with a horrible case of "Bangle-Butt":
Cleanse your pallet from that monstrosity with this:
On to some of the race cars on display:

2006 Sauber F1.06:

Super-wide 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL:
I love how the interior still has many stock elements
it's hard to go wrong w/period-correct BBS "basketweaves"
M-stripes are comprised of light blue for Bavaria, red for racing and purple, blending the two colors
yeah, I was obviously smitten with this one

Almost-as-cool 1977 320:
same spirit, but the 3-series just doesn't look as sinister as the predecessor

Getting back on track (literally and figuratively), an E30 M3 DTM car:

And finishing up with a few more sedans with massive horsepower, a trio of brand-new, 560 HP M5s are about to go out on test drives.
I just wish that I was behind the wheel of one of them.

Overall it's a beautiful and supremely-cool museum. But compared to the two other German automaker museums I've also been to, it comes in third place. Porsche has long been my favorite overall brand, and Mercedes-Benz's history goes back to the dawn of the automotive age. Don't get me wrong, it's a highly-recommended place for any car nut to visit, I just preferred the other two. Plus, BMW's current lineup leaves me cold. I'd spend my money with one of the Stuttgart (or the Ingolstadt one) before the Munich one.

When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
and now each time a comment is added I get several

Many thanks!
