Bmw Contract Hire

By: Darrell F

A German guy called Rapp Motoren Werke, in the outer regions of Munich, first established BMW in 1913. However the initial companies core business was in producing aero plane engines and eventually Rapp left to form Bavarian Motor Works which is the BMW we know today.

It was in 1928 that BMW produced their first car at the Munich factory. The first car was the BMW Dixi and the top speed was only 50mph, a long way from the fast cars BMW produce these days. The first car was a great success and a newer version was launched in 1932 and in all over 19,000 Dixi's were produced at the companies Munich factory.

However, after the initial success times were hard for BMW in the aftermath of the World War II as all of BMW's factories had been destroyed and BMW suffered from a 3 year production ban imposed as a result that BMW produced rocks and bombs during the war. In 1951 BMW produced their first car after the World War however as most of Germany was still in a recession the model did not sell over 500.

In the intervening years BMW launched a range of other models and each was a further success on the one before. Today BMW has a range of top cars. The BMW 1 series is a very desirable car with a great range of security and safety and is considered one of the best equipped cars in the market at present.

The BMW Z4 roadster is one of the most popular contract hire cars in the United Kingdom and it is easy to see why with the superior handling and slim line design the Z4 has excelled. In the upper end of the BMW range is the BMW X3 which is a common sight on the roads of Hammersmith in London as over half of the Chelsea squad has at some time owned a BMW X3. The X3 is a real beast of a car and gives a clear sight of the road ahead.

Auto Union Finance have a range of BMW leasing deals which cover both BMW contract hire and leasing and also BMW hire purchase ranges.
