Huschke von Hanstein i Walter Bäumer w BMW 328 Touring Coupé na trasie zwycięskiego Mille Miglia.

To the winner of the famous Mille Miglia (Thousand Miles Race) go spoils far greater than mere awards, as this grueling road race is considered the proving ground of Europe. A wealth of prestige is gained by the manufacturer whose car makes the best time over this course, which starts at Brescia and runs half around Italy.
Winner of the 1940 Mille Miglia was a beautifully streamlined B. M. W. Coupé driven by con Hanstein and Baumer. As the war was in progress, a triangular circuit formed by the cities of Brescia. Cremona, and Mantua was used. Time for the 1.000 miles was 8 hours. 54 minutes, and 46.3 seconds or an average speed of 166.723 kilometers per hour (108.928 mph): a remarkable performance for a passenger car.
Altho the streamlined aluminum body was designed and built specifically for the Mule Miglia, the engine and chassis were modifications of the standard 2 litre B.M.W. type 328. This six-cylinder, ohv, three carburetor engine received the same alterations and tuning as other 328's used for racing.
