BMW Gathers Six Generations of the 3 Series in One Photo

The all-new 2012 BMW 3 Series is going to start arriving in showrooms next month. The all-new 3 Series marks the introduction of the sixth generation model, with the first 3 Series being released in July 1975.

To celebrate the release of the new 3 Series, BMW has gathered all six generations for a family photo.


BMW: Although more than 35 years lie between the first generation of 1975 and the current BMW 3 Series, both front ends attest to an unmistakable brand identity and, in spite of the great difference in age, are both immediately recognizable as members of the same family.
