About This Quiz

BMW, or the Bayerische Motoren Werke as it is known in German, is one of the top car makers in the world. Their cars offer many things. First and foremost is luxury and comfort. But don't forget performance. Some BMW models are simply incredible when it comes to performance numbers. The brand also offers the latest gadgets in their cars including satellite navigation, parking aids, and every other driver assists.

For the past eight decades, the famous grille of BMW models is easily recognized around the world. Certainly, a BMW is a classy car. But did you know the company, founded in 1916, started out making aircraft engines? After the First World War, it moved on to first motorcycles and later, automobiles.

Its first car was produced in the late 1920s although it was a copy of an Austin model at the time. After that, BMW started making its own cars and designs, and the company quickly established itself as an important automaker, not only in Germany but the rest of Europe as well.

Following the Second World War, BMW took some time to get back into the business, and it was only in the 1950s that it began producing vehicles. Much like the company's start in the car manufacturing, it first copied a car under license. This small micro car has become a sought-after model today.

Some models followed with BMW building its reputation globally as well. And today, BMW has a range of incredible models in many different categories. But can you identify them?

Good luck!
