Visitors are invited to handle historic exhibits covering 95 years of BMW brand history.

Munich.Forbidden fruit is always the sweetest. Which is why the BMW Museum is about to stage its fourth “Night of the White Gloves”. From 19.00 hrs on 25 November, visitors to the Museum will don a pair of white gloves and then be allowed to stroke all the cars they are normally only permitted to caress with their eyes.

BMW classics

Up until midnight, 125 exhibits – comprising cars,    motorcycles and engines – can be closely scrutinised and    freely touched. They include classics that were and remain rarities,    such as the BMW 328, unveiled 75 years ago and running to just 464    units built. “This is now the fourth time that we are staging    this special evening at which visitors are granted an opportunity to    experience the 95-year-old history of the BMW brand not just    first-hand, but literally hands-on.

The ‘Night of the White    Gloves’ has become a firm fixture in our calendar of events    and we are delighted at its popularity as reflected in the sheer    number of visitors,” said Dr Ralf Rodepeter, Head of the BMW Museum.
