BMW used to specialize in airplane engines.\


Before manufacturing cars, BMW made airplane engines.

BMW started in 1916 as a merger between Rapp Motor and Otto Werk.

There was a high demand for German aircraft engines during World War I, so the two corporations joined forces to make aircraft engines.

The engines were renowned for their fuel efficiency and ability to reach high altitudes.

BMW seized production after World War II when the Treaty of Versailles was signed.

The treaty banned Germany from manufacturing warplanes, so BMW was out of business.

This was when BMW turned to the design of cars.
