How it all started? Watch the history of BMW roadsters [video]

BMW does not have the kind of history as Mercedes-Benz, though they are both now top players in the luxury vehicle market.

BMW started first as an airplane engine builder and stepped into the automotive history in 1928 after buying Automobilwerk Eisenach, which was licensed to build the Austin Seven under the name Dixi DA-1.

Soon BMW dropped the Dixi name and started building the 326 saloon. first in house designed car, which was followed by the company’s first roadster – the 327 in 1937.

XCAR has put together a very interesting short history film starting with the 327 all the way to the current Z4. In between these models we can find classics such as the beautiful 507, plastic-bodied Z1 and the Z8. Enjoy!
