BMW Museum Offers Unforgettable Rides in Classic Convertibles

The BMW Museum in Munich has come up with a surprise for the new classic season. Starting April 1, visitors to the museum can book a three-hour tour that includes the BMW facilities as well as the city’s most important sights. But more important than that is how the visitors are going to enjoy the ride through the city.

And what's better than driving in a BMW? That's simple: being driven in a BMW. The museum thought about offering an unforgettable ride and decided to use classic cars for the city’s sightseeing. When it came to selecting the models for these excursions, the BMW Museum chose an all-cabriolet line-up. Going back to the 1930’s, there is a BMW 326 Cabriolet and a BMW 335 Cabriolet available. The 1950’s era is represented by a BMW 502 Cabriolet, also known as the “Baroque Angel”. Finally, the BMW 3200 CS Cabriolet, a one-off open-top version of the 3200 CS coupe, will be available.

This car is the only one in the world, being commissioned to the Italian coachbuilder Bertone for BMW’s main stakeholder at the time, Herbert Quandt. The participants will be driven from the BMW Museum, past the BMW Tower and on to the BMW Welt. The chauffeur will then take them to the nearby BMW home plant, which is not normally open to the public.

After the factory, the route leads to BMW Classic, with its priceless collection of vehicles, and on down Leopoldstrasse to Odeonsplatz. The tour recreates the ring road around the old centre of Munich, so that passengers can discover the city’s main historic sights from the comfort of a classic automobile. Next stop will be at the main BMW showroom on Lenbachplatz, after which the route continues along the Olympiapark and back to the starting point, the BMW Museum. The entire trip takes around three hours and costs EUR90 per person.
