Before the two world wars began, BMW was already producing cars. From their first BMW Dixi models after models rolled out of their factories which include BMW 303, BMW 328, BMW 326, BMW 327, BMW 320, BMW 321, BMW 335 and BMW 340.
The BMW 501 was BMW’s first attempt to produce a mid-size luxury saloon car. Designed by in-house designer Peter Schimanowski, the 501 was called “Baroque Angel” by the public because of her flowing style and curved body shell.
Powered by a 2.0-litre V6 engine, this large car was quite spacious and priced 50% more than the Mercedes-Benz 220 (W187) model because of a few safety features such as side-impact protection, fuel tank placement that was placed in such a position that would minimise injury in case of a car-crash, etc.
