DESCRIPTION
The Glas V8 is a V8-engined coupé produced by Hans Glas GmbH at Dingolfing. The car was first presented in September 1965 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, where it became nicknamed the "Glaserati".

The V8 shared its wheelbase with the company's existing Glas 1700 sedan, resulting in long overhangs at each end which some commentators felt compromised the aesthetics of the striking design and the car's road holding. By February 1966 Glas were running a prototype V8 with the engine bored out to 2, 982cc (literally a doubled up version of the 1, 489 cc unit found in some versions of the company's Glas GT) and a three way carburetor.

This version offered maximum power output of 118 kW and according to some sources now managed to top the 200 km/ h maximum specified in the original brief for the car. During 1966 a 3. 2 litre engined version providing maximum power output of 129 kW was also under development, but 1966 was the year when the company's precarious finances drove a crisis that resulted, in September 1966, in a take-over by BMW.

With the Glas model range now under the control of BMW, the Glas company's former rivals, production of the 2600 V8 Glas was ended in August 1967, (although the model continued to be listed until December). In September the 3000 V8 developed under Glas management the previous year appeared on the market, virtually unchanged, except that it carried a BMW badge on the bonnet/ hood and was branded as the BMW-Glas 3000-V8.

Production of this model ended in May 1968, however, and exactly a year after its appearance it was delisted in September 1968. In contrast with their treatment of the smaller Glas GT, BMW resisted any temptation to give the BMW branded BMW-Glas 3000-V8 a BMW style "twin kidney" grill.

This low mileage Glas V8 has benefitted from older refurbishment before being placed into dry storage for around 30 years in the late 1980s. Now presented in good original condition and with recent attention, this super rate 1960s GT car really makes a statement on the road. A rare luxury sports coupe which offers both dynamic driving enjoyment and future investment potential.
