Style and Performance Since Way Back: The 1939 327/28 Coupe

It's our favorite day of the week here in Grayson BMW blogland; a day to pause for a bit, and reflect on our roots. That's right, it's Throwback Thursday! Today, the @BMW Twitter team has brought us this picture of a pristine-looking 1939 BMW 327/28.

The 327/28 was the higher-powered sibling to the 327. With the 2.0-liter straight-six engine producing 80 horsepower, the 2,400 pound coupe had an advertised top speed of 78 miles-per-hour-- not very speedy by today's standards, but positively white-knuckling in 1939.

The 327/28 evolved into the New Class coupe, and eventually what is now the 6 Series. Available with a persuasive 445-horsepower/480-pound-feet engine, the new 6 series can accelerate from 0-60 in just 4.3 seconds. Speed tops out at 155 miles-per-hour, but we must insist you save the speed runs for the track. Come on in and check it out for yourself. Visit us for a test drive, today. We would love to serve you.
