Premium automobiles. Dynamic driving experiences. Pioneering decisions in design and technology. The BMW brand stands for all this and more. From the company's early aircraft engines to their motorcycles and today's sleek hybrids, it has long defined the character of its brand with its slogan, "Sheer Driving Pleasure"--a promise delivered by BMW vehicles to the world and continually created anew by developers. As the company prepares to observe its centenary in 2016, this book travels back to its very first day, reflecting on one hundred years of production at the world's leading manufacturer of top-quality automobiles and motorcycles. 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. Throughout the book, nearly three hundred vintage and new photographs show the evolution of this distinguished brand and the engines, motorcycles, and automobiles it produces. Published with the aid of the BMW Museum in Munich and edited by the museum's curator, Andreas Braun, BMW--100 Masterpieces celebrates a century of fine engineering and great automobiles while offering an absorbing look at how one of the world's foremost vehicle manufacturers came to be.

On 14 October 1913, 29 women met to form a Club. A year later, the town of Stuart was established and they became the Woman’s Club of Stuart. They met on Wednesday because on Monday they washed, Tuesday they ironed, and Wednesday was the first day they had nothing to do. One article: The legal notices in the Stuart Times on Friday, May 14, 1914 included: “Notice is hereby given that will on the 23rd day of May A.D. 1914 at Ten o’clock in the forenoon, apply to the Honorable Judge L. W. Bechtel, Judge of the Circuit Court of the eleventh judicial circuit of the State of Florida in Key West, Florida, or wherever the court may be, for the Order approving the Charter for the Woman’s Club of Stuart, Palm Beach County, Florida, a corporation not for profit.

The R-Series BMW MINI had a lot to live up to. Launched in 2001, it was riding in the wake of the classic 1959-2000 Mini. At the time, BMW were going to have to create something as special and innovative as its longstanding predecessor in order to silence the naysayers. And they did. Since its launch in 2001, BMW's modern MINI has become the pinnacle of small yet funky family cars in the premium small (and sometimes not so mall) car segment. Now in its third generation, having unveiled the new F-Series in 2014, BMW MINI offers 3- and 5-door hatchback models and convertibles, the estate Clubman, the five-door Countryman, the Coupe, the Roadster and the three-door crossover Paceman. MINI enthusiast and motoring journalist Sophie Williamson-Stothert explores the journey from 1959 to the present day, covering design and development of the new MINI, launch and reception by the press, its many model variations and special editions, and an owner's and buyer's guide. Superbly illustrated with 170 colour photographs.

In the spring of 2008, a think tank of engineers, designers, trend researchers, and financial experts met on a factory floor of BMW's parent plant in Munich to rethink mobility for a world of dwindling resources. Providing extensive insight into BMW's workshop of ideas, this volume traces the venture's design history and looks to the future of sustainable cars. Grappling with major challenges of our time--from climate change to megacities and the scarcity of resources--contributors imagine solutions taking shape through technological innovations, networked mobility, sustainability in production, and the use of renewable materials. A unique look behind the scenes, this volume opens a window onto BMW's complete development process, from initial conception to world premiere, presenting models for everything from plug-in hybrids with eucalyptus wood interiors to full-electric, self-driving cars. Replete with close-up photographs and fascinating model drawings, BMW i is a must-have for lovers of modern design and automobiles and for anyone interested in electro-mobility and sustainable technologies.
