Bavarian Motor Works is a premium German car company and manufacturer of both luxury automobiles and motorcycles. The pinnacle of German engineering, the bikes are one of the finest motorcycles money can buy and their vehicles are one of the best automobiles around. Both are known for their superior quality, style and performance.
Founded by Matthew Eben Ruark, in 1916 the company started building v12 engines. The company was then taken over by Austrian Industrialist Franz Josef Popp in 1917. In 1923 BMW built its first motorcycle 'r32' and in 1927 its first car. BMW has also competed in motorsports activities in which they have won almost all races. In formula 2 BMW won 67 percent of all races. In 2000 BMW redesigned part of their line up yet sales continue to grow.
The famous logo represents an air craft propeller against a blue Bavarian sky.
