Europe's First Turbocharged Production Car; Demands for increased power for its medium-sized saloon had prompted BMW to introduce the original 2002 in 1968, and it was the fuel-injected 2002tii that provided the basis for the model's ultimate expression - the Turbo - which was readily distinguishable by its deep front air dam, wheelarch extensions and boot-mounted spoiler. This top-of-the-range model had been introduced following a successful racing program that saw a works entered, turbocharger equipped 2002 win the 1969 European Touring Car Championship in the hands of Dieter Quester. Faced with having to compete against the Porsche 911 & Alfa Romeo GTA, BMW opted for 'bolt on' horsepower courtesy of a turbocharger in a compact package resulted in outstanding performance and the fastest and most exciting medium-sized sports saloon of its day. Produced for the 1973/74 season only, this rare model is rightly regarded as a modern classic and highly sought after.
