Outlook: The activities in a anniversary year of a BMW
Group and a Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2016.

press discussion of BMW Group Classic on “Happy View Day” to launch
Techno Classica. On Wednesday 6 Apr starting during 3 p.m., journalists
will be introduced to a many critical classical vehicles being
exhibited on a stand, and they will also be given a round-up of the
BMW Group’s activities during a centenary year.

The BMW Group also emphasises a joining in a area of
automobile and motorcycle story as a organiser of a heritage
Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. During a press discussion hold at

of “Best of Show” with a Trofeo BMW Group final year, and it is
positively one of a many profitable vehicles presented during a Techno
Classica 2016.

 

Anniversary of a 02 Series: 50 years of perfect driving
pleasure in a compress two-door vehicle.

The centenary of a company’s existence is in a foreground, but
this year also outlines a 50th birthday of BMW in 1966. The anniversary
behind thereafter supposing an arise for presenting a BMW 1600. This
automobile laid a substructure mill for a array subsequently
designated as a BMW 02. The new indication was a dream designed for
business with sporting ambitions. The multiple of a compact
two-door notchback physique with engine and framework record proven in
a four-door saloons of a “New Class” combined a ideal enablers
for doing that was as flexible as it was safe. The BMW 02 immediately
soared to turn a summary of a ultimate pushing machine. This
aura was serve extended as a years went by since a available
energy was increasing by upgrades in a operation of engines granted from
a strange 85 hp in a BMW 1600, by 100 hp in a BMW 2002 and
130 hp in a BMW 2002 tii, adult to 170 hp in a BMW 2002 turbo.

In 1973, a flagship chronicle was a initial European series
automobile to be powered by an engine with a turbocharger, and an
instance of this automobile is being shown during Techno Classica 2016 alongside a
BMW 1600 convertible, a BMW 2002tii furloughed and a convene chronicle of the
BMW 2002 TI. And dual other exhibits are positively essential if one is
to conclude a surpassing stress of a series: a automobile from
a initial era of a BMW 3 Series as a inheritor to a BMW
02 from 1975, and a BMW M2, that continued a tradition of sheer
pushing pleasure in a compress pattern with contemporary aptitude and
appealing intensity.

 

Fascinating eyewitnesses from a story of BMW Motorrad,
MINI and Rolls-Royce.

The brands BMW Motorrad, MINI and Rolls-Royce are also partial of the
BMW Group and they are contributing to a centenary year of the
association with fascinating episodes from their history. Visitors to
Techno Classica are means to suffer profitable and singular motorcycles from
a early days of motorcycle production. A BMW R 67/2 from a 1950s
prepared for a International Six Days Trial recalls legendary
motor-sport successes on dual wheels, as does an instance of the
successful BMW R 80 G/S that won a Paris-Dakar Rally 4 times
during a 1980s.

Sporting successes are also a concentration of courtesy when we demeanour back
during a story of a MINI brand. Additionally, a exhibits
denote that alfresco pushing fun in a impression of a British
code also has a prolonged tradition. A MINI Convertible from a latest
era epitomises this suggestion and it is presented side by side
with a precursors, that are now roughly a entertain of a century old.
At a commencement of a 1990s, a German association Lamm launched an
open-top chronicle of a tiny car, and a Rover Group obliged for
a code in a United Kingdom followed fit shortly afterwards.

Two automobiles are means to benefaction a quintessential hint of the
Rolls-Royce brand. Each of them embodies in their possess matchless way
a judgment of “strive for perfection”: a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost
from 1923 and a Rolls-Royce Ghost from a stream prolongation facility
in Goodwood. The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost was creatively given the
indication nomination of 40/50 hp and was built from 1907 to 1925. The
automobile shown in Essen was styled with a roadster physique built by
American coachbuilder Packard and it is powered by an 80 hp
six-cylinder engine. Right from a start, a Rolls-Royce Silver
Ghost enjoyed a repute of being unusually modernized and
reliable. It was marketed as a best engine automobile in a universe and this
cachet tangible a company’s self-image during an early stage. This image
has continued to establish a impression of a code and a products
adult to a benefaction day.
