BMW 503

Fixed-head coupÈ, cabriolet.

Meant to rival the 300S Mercedes, but didn't quite. A 140bhp twin-carburettor edition of the big V8 spells 115mph, but the Goertz-styled bodies are a trifle ponderous, and there's still column shift on early cars; no official RHD option. Effectively replaced by Bertone-styled 3200CS coupÈ of 1961-65 - which is not sold in UK.
