In 1962, a coupe made its debut, the successor to the BMW 503; the design leaned towards the Italian flair prevalent at the time and expressed this idiom with even more intensity.

Car & Driver News
Just 603 of these coupes were built over a four-year period.
This coupe was a transition model, using the 3.2-liter 160-hp V-8 engine that dated from the '50s, nestled in graceful bodywork styled by Nuccio Bertone (hence the connection here) that presaged the move toward the future six-cylinder coupes and eventually the 6-series.
