THE LEGEND OF M – 50 YEARS OF BMW M GMBH.
Back in 1972 Robert A. Lutz was a Board member at BMW. A gifted salesman, he brought the American motto “win on Sunday, sell on Monday” to Europe, and the newly founded BMW Motorsport GmbH was charged with turning it into reality. According to Lutz “a company is like a human being. As long as it goes in for sports, it is fit, well-trained, full of enthusiasm and performance.” Given the optimism of the 1970s – everything was getting more colourful, faster, sportier – the timing was perfect. The company name was later slimmed down to create BMW M GmbH, adding fuel to a legend that has lost none of its magic in the years since.
AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART.
A BMW M car has always been something very special – and a love of extraordinary engineering also marks out its owners. An M car is not something you need, it’s something you treat yourself to. And we can all chose our personal favourite from 50 successful years of history. What better way to celebrate a landmark anniversary.
