Unbeatable BMW

Unbeatable BMW Eighty Years of Engineering and Motorsport Success Unbeatable BMW is the comprehensive history of BMW competition from 1917 through 1997. The first edition of Unbeatable BMW became a cult classic among enthusiasts, but its coverage was restricted to the years 1959-79. Now, this astounding story has been massively expanded by the author in a hardcover format, richly illustrated in 4-color. Jeremy Walton weaves together the tale of BMW’s engineering know-how, daredevil drivers, inimitable team leaders, and the cars they championed and drove to the winner’s circle. Faltz of Essen, Group 5 320i, Nürburgring, 1977 BMW’s envied reputation and the whirling-propeller badge are such legends as the prewar BMW 328 sports cars and the 1990s 200-m.p.h. McLaren/BMW V12s.

Walton sweeps through the 1970s inBatmobilein 3.0 CSL lightweight racing coupes, then explores the best-selling 3-series in every race category. Walton also covers the unexpected success of the 5- and 6-series, the latter against Jaguar. Unbeatable BMW recalls the establishment of BMW’s Motorsport division, and the thrill of the first M-Powered cars. From M1 onward, the author details the burgeoning M-brand, how MPower won the first world title for a turbocharged car (1983), and the years as the backbone of European Formula 2.
