THE ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE MACHINES.
Established in 1916, BMW is one of the world's oldest and most respected manufacturers of cars and motorcycles. Over the past century, it has faced myriad challenges and responded with countless innovations, solidifying its global reputation for performance, luxury, and style. The BMW Century chronicles this remarkable company through its corporate trials and triumphs and, more importantly, through the cars and motorcycles it has manufactured-from the 1923 R32 motorcycle to the pivotal Neue Klasse automobile line of the 1960s and 1970s to the sleek hybrid and electric cars of today.
To assemble this handsome volume, author Tony Lewin combed through BMW's rich official archives and spoke with many of the individuals responsible for making the company what it is today. The result is hundreds of photographs, a wealth of detailed history, and individual profiles on the incredible machines BMW has created year after year. This is the one volume no aficionado can be without.
