A Thrilling, In-Depth Look At This Legendary Automaker
BMW started out as a builder of aircraft engines, before moving to motorcycles and finally, cars. Its aircraft engines set speed records in the '30s and its sports cars were stylish, elegant and fast. The horizontally-opposed engines on BMW's motorcycles caught the eye of the U.S. Government and this led to Harley Davidson being ordered to copy them for wartime use. After the war, BMW fought to reclaim its status as a producer of world-renowned sports cars and motorcycles. Today, it's clear that this company has carved out a place among the builders of unique and fast vehicles that many proclaim are the "ultimate driving machines."
From sports cars to luxury cars, from foreign elegance to domestic muscle, Great Cars offers an in-depth look at the world's fastest, most expensive, most exciting and most unusual automobiles, along with the people who loved and created them.

If youre interested in BMW cars, motorcycles & aircraft this DVD is a good start. It gives the whole history of the company from before the war all the way up until today. Though if youre interested in learning more about your specific BMW you may be slightly disapointed. It gives a very brief and I mean 'BRIEF' description of most of the models. The DVD is 90 minutes long yet I felt it was over very quickly. I own the car featured on the cover and expected a LOT more. All it does is talk about the Z3 & Z8 and its for about 5-10 minutes, as with the rest of the cars. It was very interesting seeing the older models though. Some of the models shown Ive never seen before and enjoyed learning about.
I recieved a DVD from the company itself after purchasing my BMW and I found that one to be more informative and longer. I prefer the DVD the company sent me. If you dont own a BMW and are interested in learning more about these cars then buy it but if you do own one, a newer model...
I really enjoyed watching this documentary on BMW. I learned some new things and it was entertainig to watch. Nice clear picture using instant video through Amazon Prime.
This was a very quick review of older and newer models of bmw's. There is no 2002's and no 8 series. What a shame but i am still glad to have it.
