BMW (Bavarian Motor Works) had its inception in 1916 when Karl Rapp and Gustav Otto merged their companies and began producing aircraft engines for the Prussian and Austro-Hungary militaries. However, the Versailles Armistice Treaty after the war prohibited BMW from producing aircraft, so the focus of the business shifted to motorcycles and automobiles. The first automobile was produced in 1928, but in the period before BMW was enjoying mild success with its motorcycles claiming multiple racing titles and speed records. After World War Two the company faced a ban on production as well as destroyed factories and equipment from the Allied occupation. When the ban was lifted BMW focused its energy back into production and braved a possible takeover by the Daimler-Benz Corporation. Today BMW is one of the premiere automobile luxury manufacturers, both in performance and style. However because of this the cars are typically more expensive to insure than their luxury American counterparts. This does not slow production though, as BMW manufactures around 1.2 million vehicles a year.
