Thanks to the success of the classic car meeting “Wheels & Weisswürscht” of last year, the BMW Group Classic decided to continue to host the events also in 2019. Like last year, the BMW Group Classic uses their historic headquarter at the Moosacher Straße 66 in Munich to welcome fans of historic cars and motorbikes every first and third Saturday of the month. Since it’s all about sharing passion for classic cars and motorbikes, the event is open to everyone, independently of which type of brand they drive.
Each visitor who arrives at the gate entrance with a classic car or motorcycle receives a voucher for a traditional, Bavarian Weisswurscht and a fresh baked pretzel. The Weisswurscht is served in the modern Café “Mo 66” with a direct view onto the driveway and parking lot. Early birds might secure one out of six parking lots in front of the gate entrance. If you arrive a bit later, chances are high to get at least a parking lot in front of the transparent workshop.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to participate at the very first car meeting of this season – it was held on the May 4th – but thanks to some spare time I was able to stop by this Saturday. And it was well worth it. I immediately visited the BMW Group Classic parking garage which is open for two hours, starting at at 10am.
The company’s collection consists of a potpourri of incredible cars, engines and other artifacts of each decade. My personal highlight was the BMW X5 Le Mans (E53) with the V12 LMR engine. Back in June 2001, race driver Hans-Joachim Stuck achieved an incredible lap time of 7:48 minutes at the Nürburgring Nordschleife with the SUV. His top speed was 309 km/h (192 mph).
But next to stunning cars from BMW’s collection, also the visitors of Wheels & Weisswürscht brought some awesome cars to Munich. The highlights included a BMW M3 CSL of the E46 generation, a BMW Z8, a white BMW M3 E30 and a BMW 323i E21.
All cars were in factory-new condition and, like last year, it was quite easy to chat with owners about their passion for classic cars.
