BMW roadsters: A journey from 1929 - 2013

BMW is a company that pretty much everyone loves. The cars it produces are regarded as some of the best in the world, and as it covers all niches there's a BMW for pretty much everyone. We took a look at the history of its roadsters to see just how far the firm's come since the early 20th century.

CNET - Drew and Alex love their sports cars - the freedom they afford the driver combined with speed and eye catching looks are, all told, rather lovely. BMW does roadsters really very well indeed.

Using traditional BMW design cues and engineering to create fast, good looking, brilliant to drive cars that are attainable dreams for the vast majority of people. The boys decided to look at BMW's roadster background, Drew casting a bearded eye over the classics and Alex looking at the more modern 'Z' cars. There's some real unicorn cars in there. The 328, for example, is a pre-war race car that boasts a 2.0-litre six cylinder engine and a 90mph top speed. However, it's also achingly beautiful and is an utter joy to drive.
