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, wheel arch 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, this rare model is rightly regarded as a modern classic and highly sought after.

The birth of BMW Motorsports as we know it today.

Chassis 4290236 was completed on March 3, 1974 in Chamonix (085) paint over customary black upholstery with a 4-speed transmission and a revered factory manual sunroof. BMW Classic Certificate 6632 confirms the Turbo was delivered new on March 22nd through BMW Italia S.p.A of Palazzolo/Verona, Italy. The 2002 was later discovered near Torino, Italy, where it had been garage parked since 1982. The car was acquired by marque and model experts in The Netherlands, who would commission a complete rotisserie restoration to concours standards under the guidance of their highly experienced team.

Starting with an original body, first-paint example, restoration highlights included:
• A through, bare-metal Paintjob - Outside, inside, underside
• Reassembled with all new OEM parts. New Glass, Rubbers, and Chrome
• Correct Seals, Trim, Lights, Grilles, Emblems, Spoilers, and Decals
• A complete rebuild of the matching-numbers engine with new Pistons, Bearings, Seals, etc.
• Rebuilt Injection, Injectors, Ignition, Turbo, Starter, Alternator, etc.
• Rebuilt Gearbox
• Powdercoated Axles & New Hardware, Bushings, Joints, Rods, and Rubbers
• All new Bearings, Bilstein Shocks, Springs, and Shafts
• R&R brake system with New/Rebuilt Master Cylinder, Rotors, Pads, Calipers, Hoses and Lines

With just over 250 recorded kilometers on the odometer, this particular 2002 presents exceptionally well in original form and livery – ready for spirited touring or concours display at a moment's notice. Fit and finish is equally as impressive and correct, whether viewed from the exterior, cabin, undercarriage, engine bay or luggage compartment. All lights, electronics and safety equipment are in proper working order. A Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio complements the interior's sunroof. The rear trunk contains a correct type steel spare wheel and jack assembly, neatly stowed away. Alpina wheels are shod with 185/70R13 tires, complementing the period attire and stance.

This 2002 fully exemplifies quality craftsmanship, presentation, feel, and panache of the iconic Turbo, and is accompanied by Owner's Manual Turbo Supplement (copy), BMW Classic Certificate of Authenticity, and Accessories. Additionally, the Turbo has yet to be concours shown and will surely provide an abundance of opportunities for its next caretaker to enjoy. At DriverSource we are BMW enthusiast and have owned several great and rare examples of the marque, simply put this is amongst the finest 2002 Turbo's we have had the pleasure of offering. Now available for worldwide purchase and delivery form our Houston, Texas showroom.
