1936-40 Frazer Nash-BMW 328 Image
from Classic to Modern
This 2-seater sports car racer was powered by a 2 litre, straight-6, OHV engine, with an aluminium, head that developed 79 bhp at 5000 rpm, and 93 ft/lbs of torque at 4000 rpm.
Fitted with a ZF 4-speed manual gearbox, 3 Solex carbs, and a 7.5:1 compression, it produced a top speed of 93 mph.
Using an aluminium body on a steel tubular chassis, it had a curb weight of only 830 kg, and used hydraulic drum brakes all round.
It was a class winner in the 1938 Mille Miglia, won the 1940 event, and won the RAC rally in 1939.
The 328 became famous across the world when a specially designed lightweight coupe version was fifth overall at Le Mans in 1939, and won the two litre class at the same time.
Frazer Nash also made a number of 328's, using a BMW rolling chassis.
A total of 464 of these sports cars were built by 1940.
