BMW Nazca C2

Designed by Giorgetta Giugiaro, the Nazca C2 is one of the world’s most stunning concept cars and arguably the best BMW ever conceived. Thanks to its carbon fibre construction, sleek low-lying body, gullwing doors and a 5-litre V12 twin turbocharged engine that pushes out a hefty 380hp, the model gets top marks for both style and substance. With only three models ever actually produced, you’ll need a miracle to get your hands on one – even if you have the $1.1 million to spend! But, regardless of its rarity or the incredible purchase price, the BMW Nazca C2 is certainly a sight for sore eyes.

BMW Alpina B10 BiTurbo

When it comes to the best BMWs, no list would be complete without this vintage beast. When Alpina tweaked the already exceptional E34 5 series to create the B10 BiTurbo, they transformed this exec into what was the fastest production sedan on earth – sprinting from 0-62mph in just 5.6 seconds with the help of its 360hp engine. Not produced since 1994, the Alpina B10 BiTurbo remains an iconic car capable of record-breaking speed.

BMW X3

Step forward in time and we’re nominating the BMW X3 as one of the best BMW models ever. It’s a classy, practical and well-equipped SUV that’s not only fantastic to drive but fuel efficient to boot. The 184bhp engine takes the X3 from 0-62mph in just 8.5 seconds – delivering 50.4mpg and emitting 149g/km of CO2. Prices for a shiny new BMW X3 start from £36,795.

BMW Z4

One look at the BMW Z4 and there’s no doubt this is one of best BMWs on the market. This roadster was designed with both performance and style in mind, so it’s as fun to climb inside as it is to drive. With a choice of 7 model variants, you could be cruising around in a Z4 of your own from £29,690 – putting the powerful engine through its paces and enjoying a satisfying fuel economy of 41.5mpg, with CO2 emissions of 159g/km.

BMW 3 Series

There’s a reason the BMW 3 Series is the most popular model in this automotive giant’s lineup. The 3 Series delivers impressive performance, gratifying fuel economy and finely-tuned handling – not to mention unmatched style. Our pick of the range is the 320d SE Saloon, which returns up to a whopping 70.6mpg – emitting just 106g/km of CO2. BMW 3 Series prices start from £24,975.
