MUNICH—During some downtime on a recent visit to Munich—the reasons for which you’ll be able to read about shortly—we got a chance to check out BMW’s excellent museum. Located next to the company’s iconic “Four Cylinder” office building (which will be familiar to those of you who remember the original Rollerball movie), the museum is currently celebrating BMW’s centenary.
Although the Vision Next 100 concept wasn’t on display, the museum was full of significant production cars, concepts, and racing machines, along with plenty of motorbikes, engines, and other goodies. Space constraints preclude us from showing you everything on display, but the gallery above contains the highlights.
There are the M Turbo concept from 1972, the Vision EfficientDynamics concept from 2009, and the amazing fabric-skinned GINA Light Visionary Model of 2008. There are racing cars like the Batmobile and several M3s. Oh, and more 3 Series than you can shake a stick at. If you don’t see your favorite car in the assortment above, I might have a photo that didn’t make the cut. Feel free to ask for more in the comments (and the same applies if you want a higher-res copy, too).
