Repair of BMW
BMW (Bayerisch Motoren Werke AG) is one of the most popular, easily recognized and well-known automotive brands in the world, headquartered in Munich.
Did you know that the history of the brand begins in far 1917, when Karl Rapp and Gustav Otto founded a plant for the production of aircraft engines on the eve of the First World War. However, after the end of the war, according to the Treaty of Versailles, the Germans could no longer produce airplane engines, and enterprising Karl and Gustav took a course to create motorcycles. In 1923, the first R32 motorcycle was created and immediately broke all speed records in international motorcycle races in the period 1920-1930 and proved its reliability.
In 1933, the production of 303-model with M78 engine of the first BMW car was launched – with a 6-cylinder engine and a radiator enclosure, called as “nostrils” of BMW, without which no current model design from this corporate group can do today.
In 1936, the well-known “328” was produced, which stunned the world with its avant-garde technological innovations and the M328 engine. With this model, the company became so famous that all subsequent cars with the corporate two-color badge were perceived as a symbol of high quality, reliability and beauty.
The beginning of the Second World War forced to leave the development of cars and return to aircraft construction. Already in 1944, BMW was the first in the world to launch the production of the jet engine of BMW 109-303. The end of the war was a disaster for the corporate group. Karl Rapp and Gustav Otto decide to return to motorcycle production and develop the R24 1-cylinder motorcycle. The first post-war model “501” with the M337/1, M337/2, M337/3, M502/1 engines appeared only in 1951. However, it does not bring financial success.
