BMW has just achieved an automotive milestone after the company recently produced their 10-millionth 3-Series Sedan from their factory in Munich. This latest achievement marks the latest accolade in the 40-year history of the 3-Series.

The car in question is the recently updated F30 3-Series that was first revealed back in May. Finished in Imperial Blue, it is a 320d LCI Sportline model that is driven by a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo diesel that puts out 190 PS 400 Nm of torque.

“The success story of the BMW 3 Series started here in Plant Munich and is now reaching a very special highpoint here as well. The fact that this landmark vehicle was produced at our plant is a particular honour for us and makes me very proud indeed of my team,” said Hermann Bohrer, Plant Director at the BMW Group Facility in Munich.

Interestingly, BMW's Munich plant is where all six generations of the 3-Series have been produced and is considered by the company as the 'leader of all the other facilities producing the same model series'. The factory has been modernized and retrofitted through the years to keep up with the times and to enable the plant to produce other models aside from the 3-Series.

To date, the BMW Munich plant currently rolls out 1,000 cars per day, half of which are 3-Series cars. Other plants that produce the compact sedan include: Regensburg in Germany, Rosslyn in South Africa and Tiexi in China.
