In 1933 BMW made a departure from its high performing 4-cylinder engine with the arrival of the first 6-cylinder! This construction had a lot of untapped performance potential and the BMW 315 was born! It was also available as a sports model, the 315/1 Roadster with 6 cylinders, 1,490 cm, 40 PS. One could win a lot of races with this car in 1935! Its design was very well done and the harmony of form and function led to commercial success.
Our BMW 315/1 was delivered to the BMW dealership Dobernecker und Groth in Leipzig/Germany, according to the BMW certificate. Several years ago it was restored in Northern Germany and the prewar classic presents in almost immaculate shape. It’s such a pleasure to drive this BMW!
