BMW AG has a great history of making aircraft engines, motorcycles, and automobiles. From its founding days in 1916, BMW changed its corporate name and logo as it evolved before settling down earlier on. As you may know, there are many different interpretations of the logo and its origins, striking the curiosity for asking where did the BMW logo originate from?

It is true that BMW had a very dynamic history landing it as the top ranking luxury car maker and a leading motorcycle manufacturer (BMW Motorrad). Today BMW Group owns the following automotive brands: BMW, MINI, and Rolls Royce. At some point they purchased Land Rover, redesigned the highly successful previous generation Range Rover, before selling it off to Ford Motor Company. In fact, the first few production years of the redesigned Range Rover were powered by a BMW 4.4-liter V8 engine.
