BMW survived the war with it's first post-war called 501 in 1948, made the world's first light alloy V8 engine, and built the "bubble car" in 1954.

In recent times, the i8 petrol-electric sports car was produced in 2014, then the all-new BMW 7-series, launched in 2015.

This car has been dubbed 'BMW's most advanced car to date.'

BMW's latest model is the M2, which has been modified into an official safety car.
