BMW – buy or sell used or new cars – AutoScout24

The history of the Bayerische Motorenwerke (abbreviated as BMW) began in 1916 with the foundation of the Bayerische Flugzeug-Werke BFW. At that time, aircraft engines were still produced in the plant. Success came quickly, so that a larger area became necessary and a transfer took place near the Oberwiesenfeld airport. The First World War brought some advantages to the Bayerische Flugzeug-Werke, but later its negative consequences became evident: the Treaty of Versailles, at the end of the hostilities, forbade the construction of aircraft engines. As a result, Karl Rapp and Gustav Otto founded the company from scratch and took the name of Bayerische Motorenwerke. In this way in 1922 the totality of the existing company, including the land, was acquired. but it became necessary to orientate towards another product. At first they were the engines for boats and lorries, but, without success, they quickly passed to the engines for motorcycles, which were able to assert themselves better.

At the production of the first car, BMW came by way of crossroads. The company, once again financially strong, bought the Eisenach automobile factory. The latest model of the company, the Dixi 3/15, was first taken up again and then further developed and marketed under its own brand: the BMW 3/15. The number “3” indicated the tax class and “15” the number of steam horses. The small car conquered the buyers and led the German house to develop its first car, the 3/20, with 5 CV more.The series of successes that followed (including victories in the sports competition at the Nürburgring) suffered a setback in 1944: the plant in Munich was strongly damaged by the bombing of the allies and in 1945 finances and machinery were made available to the US military forces, which retained much of it as reparation for war damage. After this economic collapse, BMW launched the first post-war motorcycle in 1947 and the 501 model in 1951.

Because of the particular design from the roundish lines it immediately became a topic of discussion and was given the nickname of “baroque angel”. The spacious saloon was also the first BMW model entirely built in Munich. To re-establish its success, it was produced three years after the sister version 502 with the world’s first 8-cylinder V8 engine. At the same time the two drivers Noll and Cron conquered the first world title in the sidecar class. The Isetta also contributed to the economic reorganization of the company. The vehicle, equipped with 12 or 13 HP, had three wheels and a closed body, as a middle way between the car and the motorcycle, but it was traveling with a motorcycle engine. The contribution of BMW to the German economic miracle was sold 160. The task of the designers was to keep as much as possible the standards of comfort of a BMW while minimizing the price. The result was the BMW 1 Series, whose most striking features of the exterior were the small size, the long sports bonnet, the compact back and the marked lines, typical of the latest models of the Munich house.

Inside the Series 1 has the most modern technology, such as a start button, the iDrive system (navigation, air conditioning and entertainment) and, starting from the 118i version, a six-speed transmission. The peculiar rear wheel drive ensures good weight distribution and thus also a sporty and safe roadholding. Depending on engine capacity, fuel consumption is between 5.9 and 9.4 liters depending on engine type and driving style. Safety is provided by 6 airbags (for the driver, for the passenger, the side airbags and the rear ones for the head), from the xenon headlights for a better view and by the two-level brake lights to make explicit the intensity of the braking . The ordered structure, the rounded instruments, The equipment and the motorization of the BMW 1 Series can be chosen at will, within certain limits. Starting from the basic version up to the 120i model with a fully leather interior, automatic air conditioning, Msport package and much more, the 1 Series is available to suit your desires.

In response to these financial aids, Count Albrecht Goetz developed the flagship of this brand, the BMW 507, in a year, of which only 252 were produced, most of them by hand and according to the specific wishes of each customer. Ten years later, the offer already includes a complete BMW 5 Series , with engines and equipment ranging from an economic to a considerably sportier version, a Series 3 with initially 30 different models and a Series 7, destined for the luxury segment. . Today’s Bayerische Motorenwerke program ranges from the compact BMW 1 Series to the classic 3 Series, passing through the BMW 5 Series or BMW 6 Series sports carfor the family up to the luxury 7 Series car and the off-road vehicles BMW X3 and BMW X5 . The BMW M3 , the BMW Z4, the BMW M5 and the M6 have been designed to meet the sporting needs. These high-performance versions are adapted to the “sport” factor, not only in terms of motorization, but also in terms of design and are, for many, the quintessence of a sports car.

In the multiple choice system you can configure coupé, sedan, convertible or touring the corresponding model to suit your needs.
