For automotive enthusiasts curious to explore the history of the car that put BMW on the map, this detailed look at the origins of Karl Rapp's historical start-up and the remarkable machines it produced is sure to satisfy your hunger for history. Shortly after getting out of the airplane engine business for which it was originally formed, Rapp's Bavarian Motor Works company tested their mettle with landlocked transportation by producing motorcycles. Though BMW's first car was a version of the Austin 7 introduced in the early 1930s, it wasn't until the rollout of the groundbreaking 1500 Coupe that the company would truly leave their mark on the automotive industry. In addition to exploring the origins of the sedan that helped BMW to break into the profitable American market, this release also offers a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the production of the subsequent 1600 and 2000 models. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
