Ask anyone to come up with a German car manufacturer and it won’t be long before they mention BMW. Known today for its rear wheel drive executive saloons, BMW has been producing cars since 1929. Its heritage lies in designing the fuel efficient four-cylinder engine on which so much of BMW’s early success relied indeed it was this design that was used to Power the famous Red Barons plane in the war and this same twenty year old technology was used to power the Formula 1 team that won the championship. BMW are so proud of the design of their four-cylinder engine that they even designed the head office building to look like it!

The First BMW “M” car, the legendary M1 was supposed to be a Lamborghini. BMW and Lambo agreed in the 1970s to jointly build a race car. The Germans were supposed to provide the engine and some suspension parts, and the Italians would do the rest. For financial reasons, and at the last minute, Lamborghini pulled out and BMW went back to their factory, and built their first BMW “M”.
