BMW is short for Bayerische Motoren Werke or Bavarian Motor Works. The company was founded on 7th March 1916 by Franz Josef Popp and Karl Rapp. The company was a merger of Rapp’s company, Rapp Motorenwerke, and a factory owned by Albrecht Wolff.

The company’s first product was the R32, and this motorcycle was used by the German Army in World War I. After the war, BMW was forced to cease motorcycle production by the Treaty of Versailles. BMW then turned its attention to manufacturing aircraft engines.

The company’s first production car, the Dixi 3/15, was produced in 1929. In 1932, the company merged with the aircraft engine manufacturer Bayerische Flugzeugwerke (BFW).

During World War II, the company was forced to produce aircraft engines for the Nazis, and it produced more than 24,000 engines for the Luftwaffe. After the war, the factory was destroyed by Allied bombing.

The company restarted car production in 1945 with the BMW 501. In the years that followed, BMW produced the 502, 507, and the 508. In the 1950s, BMW began to produce larger cars, and its first luxury car, the 501, was launched in 1955.

In the 1960s, BMW began to expand its range, and it launched the 1500 (later renamed the 1600), the 2000, the 2800, the 3.0CS, the 3.0CSL, and the 2002, among others. In the 1970s, BMW began to win major races with its 3.0 CSL, and the company produced the first 6-cylinder engine to win the European Touring Car Championship.

In the 1980s, the M1 supercar was launched, and the company produced the 3-Series, the 5-Series, the 7-Series, the M5, the M6, the 850CSi, the 840Ci, the 850i, the Z1, the Z3, and the Z4. In the 1990s, BMW launched several successful cars, the 850CSi, the 850i, the 8-Series, the Z3, the Z3M, the Z3M Coupe, the X5, the Z8, and the X5-Series.
