From Isetta to i8, since being founded in 1916, the German car company has produced some legendary machinery. But what’s the best of the best?
Shrinking the list of dozens upon dozens of amazing vehicles that wore the blue and white roundel to just 10 is a daunting task. A top 10 list of best BMWs consisting of just BMW M3s and M5s would be difficult enough. Yet here we are, making a top 10 list encompassing the company’s entire near-century of existence. Do you agree with these choices as the top 10 vehicles? Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments below.
The 1936 BMW 328 is the car that really got the sports car ball rolling for BMW, so it’s fitting that it begins this list. When first introduced in 1936, the 328 seemingly won any sports car race it wanted to.
Powered by a 2.0-liter straight-six engine and weighing only 1,830 lbs., the 328 made 79 HP — an impressive feat for its time. It didn’t hurt either that the two-seat roadster was a good looking car as well. Even in 1936, the 328 had a horizontal iteration of BMW’s famous twin kidney grille.
