BMW (Bavarian Motoren Werke or Bavarian Motor Works)
BMW believe it or not actually built airplanes at first! Which, explains their emblem. It's suppose to look like propellers
But, when the started to produce cars they made the 3/15 PS. BMW's first series-produced automobile. :)
Now if we skip the the 30's we have the classic 328 roadster.
In the 40's you had the cool looking BMW R12
Now between the 60s all the way up until quite resently BMWs were in my opinion not that attractive, yet still good quality.
ALTHOUGH they did come out with the 1978 m1 (amazing)
Currently BMW has some of the best cars on the market, attractive, amazing quality, amazing handling, they are... The Ultamite Drving Machine.
Take a look at some of the cars they have today:
Z4 M coupe
and the glorious M5
I'm in that last picture :)
