The ten millionth BMW 3 Series Sedan is going to a driving school in Eichstätt. The BMW 320d in Imperial Blue rolled off the assembly line in September at the BMW Group’s Munich plant, marking a milestone in the success story of the BMW 3 Series. The new owner was delighted to take possession of the vehicle at BMW Welt.
Bought by long-time customer Xaver Bittl, the Imperial Blue 320d rolled off the assembly line earlier this month and features a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine that produces 190 PS (140 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.
Despite its significance, the ten millionth 3-Series won’t be tucked away and preserved as Bittl intends to use the model for his driving school in Eichstätt.
Ten millionth BMW 3 Series was an Imperial Blue coloured 320d model, which rolled off the assembly in September, 2015. Employees involved in assembling this model stood with the numbers for a special moment.
Present at the handover was Helmut Kas, Head of BMW Welt Munich and Hermann Bohrer, Head of BMW Group plant, Munich. All of them celebrated with the lucky owner of ten millionth 3 Series.
Handover at BMW Welt
Vehicle handover is one of the central functions of BMW Welt. The architecture of BMW Welt was designed to make the initial contact with the new vehicle an unforgettable experience. The culmination of the handover process is the moment when the customer drives the new car off the Premier ramp and out onto the streets of Munich. The individually tailored schedule, including the personal attention of a member of staff, and the perfectly staged handover of the new vehicle regularly attract customers from all around the world, who come here to fulfill their personal dreams. Every day, between 80 and 120 handovers, and sometimes as many as 160, take place on the Premiere stage above the display area. Since BMW Welt was opened in 2007, almost 150,000 customers have collected their new BMW on the Premiere stage.
In a statement, BMW Welt boss Helmut Käs said “The handover of the ten millionth BMW 3 Series Sedan is a special occasion for the company. We are delighted to have been able to provide the ideal setting for such an exclusive event.”
