Celebrating The “12 Days of BMW”

December 03, 2015

Here at the premier BMW new and used car dealership in Jupiter, Florida, Braman BMW Jupiter, all of our team members look forward to the festive holiday season. One of our favorite things to do during the holidays is to enjoy all of the seasonal music that makes this time of year so special. “The 12 Days of Christmas” is one such tune that inspires us to think about the many ways we can celebrate the gift of BMW during the holidays. So we came up with our list of 12 reasons why we should celebrate why BMWs are “The Ultimate Driving Machine™.” Here then is our “12 Days of BMW.”

The First Day – Celebrating BMW’s Proud Heritage

BMW began its journey toward being one of the world’s finest automakers in 1916 when aircraft engine manufacturer Rapp Motorenwerke became Bayerische Motorenwerke. BMW originally began manufacturing automobiles in 1929 when it purchased a company that built “Austin Sevens” vehicles. BMW re-tooled these vehicles and, in 1936, began production of the BMW 328 sports car.

After World War II, BMW resumed production, moving its manufacturing facility to Bavaria in 1952. BMW’s signature blue and white logo evoked the Bavarian flag. BMW quickly rose to become a manufacturer of superbly crafted automobiles such as the BMW 501, the BMW 700 and the BMW New Class, as well as performance motorcycles. The BMW 303 was the first BMW to wear the “kidney grille” that would become a signature design feature of BMW’s going forward. Through the years and many different iterations and setbacks, BMW nevertheless continued to flourish. The automaker’s many successes on the race courses of the world translated into significant improvements in performance, fuel economy, and handling. Thus was born the extraordinary M Class of performance-bred BMWs.

Today, thanks to a passion for innovating and a zeal for perfection, BMW’s race-proven vehicle technology stands as a superb achievement. BMW’s are some of the most sought-after luxury sports vehicles on the road today. From the racetrack to the driveway, the modern BMW’s remarkable heritage shines through with every vehicle we make.

The Second Day – Celebrating BMW’s Advanced Engineering

One might ask what makes BMW a BMW? The answer is at once both complex and simple. The simple answer is BMW’s passionate dedication to engineering excellence and innovation. This passion is borne out in some of the most technologically advanced vehicles that turns one’s daily commute into an exhilarating experience. Take, for example, BMW’s near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution creating a nimble agility to slice corners or hug the road. Such breakthrough innovations as BMW Efficient Dynamics, BMW Connected Drive, Active Roll Stabilization, BMW’s new 100% electric ActiveE vehicle dynamics, and BMW’s superb engines, like the outstanding 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder delivering 215 hp and 185 lb.-ft. of torque, or the stupendous 500 hp, 5.0-liter V-10 are just some of the many examples of German engineering that set BMW apart.


The Third Day – Celebrating BMW’s Forward-Thinking Technology

Always at the forefront of technological innovation, today’s BMWs showcase BMW’s cutting-edge thinking. BMW’s exclusive iDrive is an example of how BMW engineers use creative ways to simplify and improve the total driver experience. Designed for intuitive command and control, iDrive uses a rotary controller mounted in the center console to instantly command an array of hands-free communication, navigation, connectivity, and entertainment functions with just a twist of the wrist. A single toggle switch and seven keys add additional functionality to keep you focused on the road ahead, letting you relax and enjoy the ride. BMW tames technology and makes it work for you.

The Fourth Day – Celebrating BMW’s Uncompromising Commitment To Safety

BMW takes your safety on the road seriously. BMW engineers and designers labored long hours to invent a superior suite of safety features that consistently earn BMW the highest safety ratings. Active Knee Protection, for example, is a special airbag that deploys to protect the knees of front passengers in the event of a frontal collision. BMW also strongly believes that avoiding accidents in the first place is a top priority. Advanced active safety technology such as Lane Departure Warning, and Enhanced Braking System, All-Season Traction, Rear Park Distance Control, unique infrared Night Vision Display, Active Driving Assist, A Full-Color Heads-Up Display (HUD) Adaptive LED Headlights, Blind-Spot Monitoring, and 360-degree Surround View Display are just some of the many cutting-edge safety features that put BMW miles ahead when it comes to keeping you safe.


The Fifth Day – Celebrating BMW’s Luxurious Sport Interiors

For decades, BMW has been the gold standard of sports luxury performance interiors. Step inside, get behind the wheel and survey a cabin that is both driver-focused and sumptuously refined. The interior of the magnificent 7 Series goes above and beyond to surround you with extraordinary luxury and comfort. Just one example of how BMW interiors pamper passengers is the available Rear Executive Lounge Seating Package. With expansive legroom, massaging leather seats, an oversized multi-function electronic armrest, rear climate control, and twin video displays, rear passengers will find themselves enjoying the ride in remarkable fashion. Of course, each BMW interior features the finest premium materials crafted to exacting standards with a fastidious attention to detail.

The Sixth Day – Celebrating BMW’s Wide Choice Of Models

From the 2 Series through to the groundbreaking BMW iSeries, BMW gives you a remarkable range of model choices and trim levels.

The performance-bred M Series lets you select from nine different versions, including a sedan, a convertible, coupe, and SAV (sports activity vehicle). Whether you are in the market for a luxury sedan, a two-door roadster or a Sports Activity Vehicle, the choice is yours.

The Seventh Day – Celebrating BMW’s Race-Proven M Series

BMW’s extraordinary collection of high-performance M Series Models represents 40 years of BMW’s overachieving Motorsports racing program. Each M Series BMW pushes the boundaries of adrenaline-infused excitement to new heights. Carbon Fiber construction reduces weight to make the M Series amazingly nimble. Advanced Twin-Turbo technology delivers exhilarating power and performance ranging from 425 to a rocket-like 600 horsepower. BMW’s superb suspension, steering, and chassis combine to offer a dynamic track-like driving experience that transcends the exceptional.

Key design elements harmoniously blend to evoke an emotional response of joyful anticipation of the unsurpassed driving experience that lies ahead.

BMW’s circular quad headlights are the eyes to every BMW’s soul. The BMW’s seductive and sinewy creases elevate the art and science of automotive design to a new level of stunning visual achievement.
