H. Lapp walks into the building. H.L.:Here we are in the Johannisthal suburb of Berlin, in an assembly shop where the first BMW, a 3/15 saloon, was built in 1929. It was always assumed the first BMW came from Eisenach, but that’s not right. The first BMW car was assembled here in Berlin, in Johannisthal, in this workshop, and delivered to the customers from here. Answer to the question: "Can we picture how this workshop must have looked in those days? What did they actually do here?" H.L.:Well, there were no assembly lines here, but even so the cars were built up piece by piece. The bodies were suspended from the ceiling and ran along overhead rails. Up there you can still see the foreman’s office: he had a commanding view of all the cars built here – quite a lot at any one time. The assembled cars were then trundled out through the door.Answer to the question: "We’ve come a long way from the little 3/15 to the 7 Series ..." H.L.:Yes. I’m standing here between the very first 3/15 – that’s 15 horsepower – and one of the latest models, the BMW 7 Series. In between, of course, there were any number of fascinating BMWs that have made history. Answer to the question: "This 7 Series is the ultimate in luxury. How important for the latest BMWs is tradition and the story of how those historic cars came about?" H.L.:Of course we look back on the past 75 years, and in that time plenty of BMWs have been designed and built. Before the war there was that first one, the 3/15, followed by the legendary 328 Roadster, another milestone that made motor-racing history, as we know. And even during the Second World War a precursor of the 7 Series was developed, a BMW 335 which they called the Autobahn car. The ancestor of the present-day 7 Series. After the war there was a bit of a hiatus because all our drawings and equipment were in Eisenach, in the Soviet zone. But by 1951 we’d started building cars again. At the International Motor Show at Frankfurt in 1951 the BMW 501 was on display, the “baroque angel” as it was known. A luxury car, the second ancestor of the 7 Series, if you like. But the fifties were also a time of contrast at BMW, because that was when they built the Isetta, the legendary bubble-car with the door at the front, a two-seater. It was the contrasts that almost ruined BMW, but the company was rescued by the major shareholder Herbert Quandt with help from the Bavarian government. That allowed BMW to remain independent and also to develop some new cars. There was another small car, the BMW 700; then came the "Neue Klasse" with the BMW 1500 and 1800. They really dragged the oxcart out of the mire, so to speak. That’s when the success story started. The 02 versions were produced in the late sixties and into the early seventies, and broke all records for numbers sold. Then we started building larger saloons again, the BMW 2500 and 2800, with coupé variants as well; and then the present numbering system was built up in the seventies and eighties. We started with the 5 Series, which appeared in 1972. Then we again had a number starting with 3, followed by the first 7 Series. So that’s when the present nomenclature came about, and it’s still incredibly successful. And this is the current 7 Series model, the latest state of development in large BMW saloons.Answer to the question: "Motor racing was an important aspect for BMW, right from the start. Can you tell us something about that?" H.L.:Yes: motor racing is an inseparable part of the history
