Sheer driving pleasure is celebrating its 100th birthday. Time for a family album. Click on the milestones of BMW history and discover the sheer driving pleasure that has always distinguished BMW vehicles.

“THE DREAM OF THE ISAR”: THE BMW 507.

At the International Motor Show in 1955, BMW presented one of the most beautiful cars of all time in the BMW 507. The elegantly curved lines, the muscular front wheel arches and the side air vents by designer Albrecht Graf Goertz not only managed to impress every car fan at that time. Even today, they are still influential on the roadster design of the BMW brand.

LEGENDARY BROTHERS: THE MODELS OF THE BMW O2 SERIES.

The production start-up for the 02 Series in 1996 saw driving pleasure finally conquer the compact, sporty executive segment. With its unmistakeable design and the balanced engine, the BMW 2002 of 1968, in particular, goes down in history. No less famous are its legendary brothers.

GENETICS REINTERPRETED: THE BMW X6.

At the International Motor Show (IAA) in 2007, BMW presented the world’s first Sports Activity Coupé. By merging SAV and Coupé, BMW surprised the international public with the Concept X6 at the IAA in 2007. The successful model now in its 2nd generation has been driving the roads since 2014.

EVERY FAMILY HAS ITS OWN DYNAMICS. IN OUR CASE IT IS ONE LETTER: M.

Powerful appearance. Uncompromising dynamics. Maximum driving pleasure. This is what BMW M stands for. And this of course is what one of its most recent embodiments stands for as well: the BMW M4 Coupé. Technically, in terms of design and above all on the road, it makes the impossible possible.

THE NEXT GENERATION: A REVOLUTION. THE BMW i8.

Two figures that revolutionise a whole vehicle segment: 4.4 seconds, 2.1 litres. The BMW i8 is a sports car with the fuel consumption of a compact car. The first of a new era, an era in which the word premium is also a measure of sustainability for the first time.
