Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (better known as Bavarian Motor Works in English or BMW for short) is a German automobile and motorcycle producing company that was founded in the year 1916. BMW owns the Mini brand, as well as producing the cars for the brand. It is also the parent company of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. BMW also has it's own Formula 1 team, known as BMW Sauber F1 Team, a Formula 1 team born after the acquisition of the Sauber F1 Team in 2005, that had raced from 2006 until 2009, before the team returns to be propriety of Peter Sauber.

BMW is well known for its performance and luxury vehicles such as the M3 coupe/sedan, M5 performance coupe, and M6 grand touring luxury sport coupe/convertible. BMW vehicles first appeared in Gran Turismo 2, and more BMW vehicles appeared in later games of the series.

In Gran Turismo 2, BMW was wary of an upstart racing game requesting use of their property, and so their licensing policy was quite strict. Polyphony Digital was not allowed to use the "M" moniker nor were allowed to use the Z series vehicles, and their vehicles were only allowed to appear with no physical alterations (although racing modifications were allowed). Therefore the BMW cars in that game do not have the option to change wheel styles in the Wheel Shop, though the fictional Racing Modifications were allowed, as long as they did not bear a resemblance to current liveries used on BMW's racing cars. Only the basic 3-series, 5-series, 7-series, and 8-series appear in the BMW dealership. In future games, this restriction was removed.

BMW holds the highest number of Gr.3 cars in Gran Turismo Sport, at four cars, after the addition of BMW M3 GT (BMW Motorsport) '11 to the game.
