BMW doesn’t make many one-offs, but when it does, the vehicle tends to stand out. There is where the 1967 BMW Glas 3000 V8 Fastback comes in. For anyone who has never seen this BMW before, think 1967 Pontiac GTO mixed with classic BMW styling. Naturally, it is something unlike anything else that BMW has ever made. It is also why it is one of the most sought after BMWs on the planet.
Glas was a small carmaker inside of Germany that started up during the early 1960s. However, it ran into financial trouble and needed to spread out in order to increase sales and bring in a larger profit. Eventually, BMS purchased Glas by 1966 and the company released the 1967 BMW Glas 3000 V8 Fastback with the “Glas” name attached to it. BMW only produced 418 of the vehicle and it initially made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1967. While many thought the vehicle would reach major production, it never did and BMW abandoned the design in order to focus in on the E6.
Due to the very small number of remaining 1967 BMW Glas 3000 V8 Fastback, the vehicle remains a top draw whenever it appears at auctions.
