Other then the turbine engine in the me 262 which keep in mind didn't even get used as they failed after take off.

So I leave u with this question what has the " ultimate driving machine manufacture" created before any one else ???????
First car with HID (E32), first car with color display navigation system, (E38), first car with controller/joystick for navi (E65).

BMW is not the best inventor/innovator, just a good implementer and quite good at marketing.
