The sign of the white and blue propeller circle has signified BMW since the 1930s: sporty, dynamic, radiating brilliance, with timeless elegance. The mention of BMW brings to mind legendary cars like the pre-war 328, the 507 from the 1950s, or the M1 of the 1970s. But the name BMW also stands for attempts to lend mobility to a wide class of buyers, for example with the Isetta and the 700. In an historical overview, this book first tells the legendary history of the Bavarian automobile firm and goes back to its beginning, the traces of which are lost in the darkness of the First World War. The revised edition introduces the long series of models in chronological order, from the Wartburg Motorwagen of 1898 to the Mini Roadster of 2012, by means of articles and excellent color photography.
