If you’re in Munich this Friday, you’ll want to head over to the BMW Museum for the fourth annual “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.
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.

- When: 25 November 2011, 19.00 hrs to 24.00 hrs
