Timed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of BMW's founding, Tony Lewin's latest book takes in the full sweep of the company's spectacular and sometimes troubled history, bringing the story right up to date with the latest electric models and innovative concepts for the next 100 years.

The BMW Century traces the spark of the company's inventive genius from the earliest aero engines, through the groundbreaking R32 motorcycle, the six-cylinder sports cars of the pre-war era and the exciting Neue Klasse that saved the firm from bankruptcy in the 1960s and formed the building block for today's ultra successful model series.

Interviews with key insiders and perceptive analysis of business and engineering trends make this a uniquely insightful biography of one of the world's most prestigious companies, its cars, its motorcycles and its multi-brand strategy to lead the world in premium mobility.
