In 1966, BMW bought fellow German manufacturer Glas, best known for the Goggomobil microcar. Glas had just introduced the 2600 V8, a more upscale GT coupe, and the car would continue to be made for another year after the merger. This would be the basis for the BMW-Glas 3000 V8 prototype designed by Pietro Frua with a beautiful fastback body and one of the best iterations of BMW's iconic twin-kidney grille. The car debuted at the 1967 Frankfurt Auto Show and would continue to be displayed for the next two years before being sold to a private owner, but unfortunately never made it to series production. After twenty years in the collection of the first owner, the car passed to one of his employees, where it underwent an extensive restoration with a redone interior and repainted in the current silver-blue metallic color. Ready to drive, this important piece of BMW history will be coming up for auction in Paris this February.
