BMW – 1600 GT Cabrio


Vehicle Overview

In 1966 BMW commissioned two convertible Gran Turismo prototypes to the Italian automotive designer Pietro Frua. In the autumn of 1967 both models were completed in the Dingolfing factory, starting the test period, which one of the two suffered a bad accident during the tests, being immediately demolished, while the other, approved for road use, was donated to the largest BMW shareholder of the time, Mr. Herbert Quandt, remaining in his property for many years, before moving on to other private collectors.

The experts of BMW Group Classic (BMW museum that protects the heritage of the Bavarian company) managed to acquire this very rare specimen and entrusted it to the hands of a group of aspiring technicians and mechanics in strength at the BMW training center. It had not been easy to recover all the original pieces, many of which were now out of production, but the restoration work had succeeded perfectly, allowing the BMW Group Classic to add a new exclusive piece to its historic collection.
