The BMW brand stands for all this and more.

Through text and images, BMW -- 100 Masterpieces details the company's history, exploring the components of the BMW brand identity, selecting one hundred significant achievements, be they innovations in vehicles or the engineering process or world-renowned series and models like the famous BMW 328, the BMW Z series, or the motorcycle BMW K1. Special sections are devoted to the company's racing program; its world records; and movie appearances, including the James Bond franchise. The book also discusses the company's employment reforms and groundbreaking environmental decisions.
