All About BMW Cars
Car enthusiasts the world over will be familiar with the name and significance of BMW. Also known as Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, BMW translates to ‘Bavarian Motor Works’ and is one of the most important German car manufacturers of all time. Founded in 1916, the company has grown and grown with new models and subsidiary companies to own not only MINI cars, but to be the parent company of one of the most prestigious car manufacturers in all time and the head of a name synonymous with luxury: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. Not content with merely conquering the car world, the company also has two motorcycle brands known as BMW Motorrad and Husqvarna.
The logo of the company tells you a lot about its original calling, with the blue and white sections signifying the propeller of a plane as it moves through the sky. Founded by Franz Josef Popp, the BMW brand began manufacturing aircraft engines and soon began making a range of motorcycles in 1923, leading onto car production in the period of 1928-29. Engines were made for the Luftwaffe and the company became an important part of Germany’s war effort.
