Synopsis by Forrest Spencer
This video profiles the Bavarian Motor Works of Munich. The German company was first founded in the early Twentieth Century and had produced aircraft engines. During World War I their engines were noted to be the finest, highly performed engines in German air force. But after the war they took the knowledge and engineering skills and placed their highly praised engines into motorcycles and automobiles, and later developed the first jet turbine engine during World War II. This sixty-minute examines the history and developments of their company as one of the world's leading automotive producers and how they earned their prestigious international reputation as a trendsetter in the automotive industry.
