Long-term private ownership
The car offered here is the only BMW-Glas 3000 V8 bodied as a fastback coupé by Carrozzeria Frua. Unlike the tall and somewhat ill-proportioned Glas models
this new car featured low-slung coachwork that was both sleek and aggressive. It was displayed at various European motor shows
including Frankfurt and Paris in 1967
the Geneva Salon in 1968
and Barcelona in 1969
appearing in a different colour for the last occasion
Founded as an agricultural machinery business in 1883 and best known for producing the successful Goggomobil micro-car
Hans Glas's small company had ambitious expansion plans that saw it launch a pretty GT coupé in 1963. Styled by Pietro Frua
the newcomer featured unitary construction
double-wishbone independent front suspension and front disc brakes
and was available in 1,300 (85bhp) and 1,700cc (100bhp) variants
both with four-cylinder engines. Production volume never reached an economic level however
and in 1966 the struggling Dingolfing firm was acquired by BMW
which was primarily interested in expanding its own production facilities
Glas's financial difficulties had in part resulted from the introduction of an upmarket 2.6-litre V8-engined coupé. The 2600 V8 was launched in September 1965 at the Frankfurt Motor Show and immediately gained the nickname 'Glaserati' on account of its resemblance to contemporary Maseratis. Under BMW control Glas continued to produce its coupés
badged as BMW-Glas
for one more year
the largest model now with a 3-litre 160bhp V8 under the bonnet
Well received though it was
Frua's beautiful proposal for a BMW-Glas V8 replacement fastback coupé doomed to remain a one-off
new owners BMW preferring to go down the luxury coupé route with their own 3.0 CS. After Barcelona
where it had appeared in red
this prototype was sold to its first owner in Andalucia
Spain. According to the detailed history record of the car by Frua historian Stefan Dierkes
the first owner kept the car for over 20 years until his death
whereupon it was purchased from his estate by one of his employees
While with the previous owner the one-off Frua underwent a mechanical restoration
which was completed circa five years ago. At the same time
the interior was reupholstered
and the exterior colour changed to the current stunning silver-blue metallic in which the car had appeared at the Paris Motor Show in 1967. The last vendor
a BMW collector
acquired the Frua prototype in 2016 (invoice on file) to add to his collection of important BMWs
since when it has benefited from further mechanical work. This unique piece of BMW history is ready to be driven or displayed
