The German BMW company has been pre-eminent in making , cars, aircraft engines and motorcycles for seventy-five years. Yet its history has been a turbulent one, and the very survival of the Bavarian Motor Works as well as its contribution to car design and manufacture is worthy of celebration. BMW was founded along with Germany's aircraft industry in the opening years of the First World War. Then turning to motorcycles, it evolved a classic model in the 1920s which matured into a fast road bike fit for the 1990s. Adopting the Austin Seven in 1927, BMW began to make cars which, once again, became classics. While its aero engines were setting world records for speed and endurance, its sports cars in the 1930s were drawing the specification and style of two-seaters for the next twenty-five years. BMW, A Celebration was researched with the active help of BMW's own archivists. It is a book for BMW drivers and enthusiasts to treasure both as an accurate and entertaining record and as a pictorial celebration of some of the world's most beautiful cars. Contents include: The Family Tree, The First BMW Cars, The Classic Years: 1936-39, Flight: Aircraft & Engines, The Classic Motorcycle, Alternative BMWs: Keeping the Name Alive, A Second Chance: The Miracle of Life 1945-59, The Second Coming, Bold BMWs: The Racing Story, Drawing the Lines.
