End of an Era: BMW Race Engine Designer Paul Rosche Passes
Last week, we learned of the unfortunate passing of Paul Rosche, designer of BMW’s M-motorsport engines.
For many E34 fanatics, the 525ix represents the ultimate forbidden fruit.
Sensing the need for protection in his hometown of Kirkuk, Iraq, Ako Abdulrahan, a Kurdish Peshmerga soldier, recently purchased a 1990’s era, bulletproof BMW 7-Series sedan. It turned out to be a life-saving decision.
This is a beautifully-kept example of BMW’s original 3-Series, and it could be yours if the price is right.
BMW M CEO Frank Van Meel explains how the character, performance, and looks of the M3 elicit great emotion from passionate drivers. And he touches on what to expect as we head deeper into the 21st century.
