car description

A true collector's item of which probably only 5 copies still exist. This BMW 335 Cabriolet from 1940 is an absolute rarity. The partially existing first varnish, the original engine, the original transmission and the original leather, with a distinctive patina, show the origins of the automobile of a time long gone.

This BMW comes from one of the most important car collections in Europe and has been conserved. It makes a pristine impression and yet, given its age and unrestored condition, it is in good condition.

Unusual for the modern era, the doors open in the opposite direction and are installed with external hinges. In addition, the 335 has a grooved turn signal/folding turn signal. If you're looking for an opening for the trunk, you won't find it, because this BMW doesn't have a trunk lid. The trunk is accessed via the folding rear backrest. In the interior, you can literally feel decades of history. The many wear marks, scratches, small cracks and a distinctive patina give this BMW a unique character.

This rare BMW is an absolute must-have for collectors and enthusiasts.

History of the series

The BMW 335, produced from 1939 to 1941, was available for purchase at the time at a price of 7,850 Reichsmarks. The convertible, of which only 40 were produced, was about 2,000 Reichsmarks more expensive. The decisive factor in the development of the 335 was the success and popularity of its predecessor, the 326. Although the 326 was large by the standards of the time, the 335 was still somewhat larger. The reason for this was to provide enough space for a larger engine. The 6-cylinder in-line engine with 3.5 liters displacement, offered for the time a driving performance, which set with a top speed of 145 km/h a parade value. The mechanics were adapted to the increased performance. Apart from that, hardly any changes were made to the previous model.

The total number of 410 units is due to the onset of World War II, which prevented the continuation of production of the BMW. The BMW 335 is the most powerful BMW of the pre-war period.
