Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (English: Bavarian Motor Works), commonly known as BMW, is a German automobile, motorcycle and engine manufacturer headquartered in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. Originally founded in 1916 as an aircraft engine maker, the company turned to motorcycle production in 1923, and the first BMW automobile was released in 1928. Heavily involved in military production during World War II, the company lost many of its facilities and was banned from making motor vehicles until 1948. Today, it owns the MINI and ROLLS-ROYCE brands and markets vehicles of two sub-brands - BMW i, for plug-in electric cars, and BMW M, for high-performance versions of regular BMW cars. It is one of the best-selling and best-known luxury automakers in the world.

BMW has established itself as a prime maker of luxury and sports cars during the 1960s, with the New Class sedans and coupés; the value of BMW car sales doubled between 1962 and 1965, and the company highlighted the racing pedigree of its cars by winning the Spa 24 Hours race in 1965 and 1966, along with manufacturers' titles in the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) in 1966, 1968, 1969 and 1970. In the early 1970s, the New Class was replaced with the E9 series, and racing duties of the likes of BMW 2002 were taken over by the iconic BMW 3.0 CSL. The car dominated the ETCC, winning six manufacturers' titles (in 1973 and 1975-1979), earning class victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1973, 1974 and 1977, and four consecutive wins in the Spa 24 Hours race (1973-1976; a BMW 530i won in 1977). An updated model, the BMW 3.5 CSL, also won the 1000 km of Nürburgring in 1976, and its successors - BMW M1 and BMW 320i - won races and class titles in the World Championship for Makes (1977) and World Sportscar Championship (1978, 1984 and 1985). Meanwhile, performance versions of regular models - including the first-generation BMW M3 - collected eight wins at the Spa 24 Hours between 1982 and 1992 and won the 1987 ETCC.

Since the 1970s, BMW has also provided engines for sports cars in various racing series. Five of the seven teams that contested the FIA Cup for Cars up to 2 Litres in 1976 (as part of the World Sportscar Championship) ran cars powered by BMW units. During the 1980s, BMW engines were used by several FORMULA 1® teams, including Brabham, Arrows and Benetton; Nelson Piquet won the 1983 FORMULA 1® Drivers' Championship in a Brabham powered by the turbocharged inline-four M12 unit. In 2000-2005, BMW provided engines for the Williams team, helping drivers Juan Pablo Montoya and Ralf Schumacher remain competitive during a period of total dominance of FERRARI. Starting in 2006, the company entered a partnership with the Sauber team, finishing 2nd and 3rd in the Constructors' Championship (in 2007 and 2008, respectively) before abandoning the series in 2009. Elsewhere, the 1995 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans was won by a McLAREN F1 GTR powered by a BMW S70 V12 engine; another version of the same engine was fitted into the BMW V12 LMR that won the race in 1999. The BMW Motorsport team and BMW Team RLL won the American Le Mans Series three times combined - in 2001 (with BMW M3 GTR), 2010 and 2011 (with BMW M3 GT2 ALMS). Today, the BMW brand continues to appear in racing series all over the world, most notably in the IMSA GTLM class (with BMW M8 GTE, winner of 24 Hours of Daytona in 2019 and 2020), the GT3 class (with BMW M6 GT3, winner of the Spa 24 Hours in 2016 and 2018), and Formula E (with Team Andretti). Since 2014, Formula E has also been using the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid as the Safety Car.
