The 8 Coolest-Looking BMWs of All Time

The Bayerische Motoren Werke or Bavarian Motor Works company began in 1922, making not precision vehicles but actually airplane engines. They moved from this into motorcycle engines, farm equipment, household items, railway brakes, and then motor vehicles. Over the years, BMWs have been defined by their sleek lines and flawless German engineering. There have been many include models since the beginning of BMW, but below, we’ve listed what we consider to be the most unique and interesting-looking models of BMW.

The Coupe Mille Miglia

Although its design points to yesteryear, this concept vehicle actually debuted in 2006. Its marriage of futuristic styling with vintage curves and lines makes it truly unique. And it’s not only beautiful it also featured a straight-six engine that could push out an impressive 343 horsepower.

Z8 Roadster

Again a nod to an older model of BMW, the 507 the Z8 roadster is a sleek model that makes you want to put your foot to the floor and cruise down the Florida coast.

BMW 507

And of course, up next is the Z8 Roadster’s inspiration. Lauded the most beautiful car in the world when it debuted in 1955, this gorgeous BMW almost ruined the company due to its high production costs.

BMW 700 RS

Not to be confused with the much boxier-shaped BMW 700, the RS was designed with a space frame chassis and a low aluminum body. Released in 1960, this pretty and stylish sports car was first seen at the Rossfeld Hill-Climb Race.


The 1970s saw a throwing off of the more traditional curvy styling in vehicles replaced by sharp lines and angles. The M1, which was initially meant to be a partnership vehicle with Lamborghini, is a great example of this styling and was produced from 1978 to 1981.

BMW 328

The BMW 328, produced from 1936 to 1940, was not only a gorgeous example of styling from that time period but also an impressive sports car. With over 100 wins under its belt in the 1937 racing season, this car could really move.

BMW Series 8

Jumping forward several decades, we come to Series 8, specifically the relaunch that happened in 2018. Not just one model of vehicle, the styling of the series 8 vehicles are all beautiful to behold whether you’re driving a G14, G15, or G16.

328 Hommage

As the name suggests, this 2011 model of the vehicle was designed to bring honor to the original 328 from the late 1930s. With its wide low-lying body and vintage styling, we think BMW did a pretty good job.

Frequently Asked Questions About BMWs:

Are BMWs expensive to maintain?

BMWs tend to cost more for maintenance and service due to the nature of their vehicles primarily being higher-performance models, particularly when you enter the M-Class and engines like the V8 and above. These vehicles require more labor and high-quality parts to maintain, so a BMW owner should plan on visiting your local BMW specialist every 10,000 miles or once per year, whichever comes first.

How much is it to get BMW serviced?

As noted above, the parts and labor involved can increase the cost of servicing. From our experience over the years, smaller jobs such as oil changes and filters start at $120. For more involved servicing appointments, which can vary quite dramatically in needs, plan on starting at $400 and up.

Are BMWs reliable?

BMWs can be pretty reliable, but they sometimes get a bad reputation, which we’d like to correct with some notes. BMW engines tend to last very well if they are maintained at the suggested intervals, and the owner (or garage) doesn’t skimp on lower-quality parts, even such things as discount oil. Where some owners experience more prevalent issues are all the support elements of the car. Everything is electric, from the windows to the mirrors and the seats, allowing for hiccups to present themselves more commonly than, say, the engine. This is good news because the engine is strong, but some owners will get frustrated with quirky parts needing attention at random intervals.
