Our History

Owner, Kermit O'Neal, seen sitting by the table one of the many breathtaking views of the hill country from Alamo BMW. Kermit O'Neal has owned and operated Alamo Sports Cars since 1980. The dealership originally featured specialty autos, such as Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Triumph, Cobra and others. It was also a service center for all European sports cars. Kermit has always pursued his love of vintage racing and restoration. In 1996, Kermit added BMW motorcycles to the line up. In 2008, the business was moved to its current location and took on Triumph motorcycles. The most recent addition to the business is the go kart track that is on the property with the dealership.

Alamo BMW is nestled within the Texas Hill Country along IH-10 W at the outskirts of San Antonio, not too far from the 1604 and IH-10 interchange. It is about six miles from the Rim and La Cantera shopping centers in Northwest San Antonio. It makes for a great place for motorcyclists looking for an early meeting place on a Saturday morning tour of the Hill Country or for a great "drop-off" place for husbands when their wives are going shopping at the Rim or La Cantera or for that matter, if you are the husband, when your wife is going shopping, check out our go kart track.

The building is surrounded by oak trees and, although modern, it thoroughly incorporates its surroundings. It might give some visitors visions of "Texas Limestone meets Modernity - Glass Bucket Lamps and Stainless Steel Pipes." The interior is very spacious and great attention was given to color and space, allowing customers to feel at ease while they enjoy their dream driving machines or, as they say in Germany, while they are in "Slaraffenland."

Alamo BMW has the only outdoor go-kart track in San Antonio. The state-of-the-art 3/10 mile go-kart track resides in a park like setting. It is the ultimate exhilarating driving test of anyone's skills aged 12 and up. The go-karts are the latest Alpha model by Rimo, a German manufacturer. It is a treat for anyone who wants to come out and enjoy some Hill Country ambiance and get away from the daily routine - even if it is just for a couple of hours, half a day or a day. It is a great way to unwind, relax and have some down-out-right fun!
