BMW fans rejoice, 2012 marks 40 years of BMW M Power! Back in 1972, BMW brought together all of the company’s motor racing under one company and BMW Motorsport GmbH was born. The BMW subsidiary was built into a powerful race team by former driver and team boss, Jochen Neerpasch.
In 1978, a legend was introduced, the BMW M1 supercar, laying the foundation for M cars today.
In 1993, a new company name was needed to reflect upon the wider scopes of activity that the BMW subsidiary was exploring, including BMW M cars, BMW Individual vehicle customization and BMW Driver Training, birthing BMW M GmbH.
The M line has come a long way since then and now more than ever, the BMW has increased its performance and accessories and made M Power accessible to a wider audience. The future of the BMW M is something we can’t wait for!
