BMW 2002 Turbo
Saloon,2 doors,5 seats
In 1973 up and coming German manufacturer, BMW, took the world by storm with the announcement of its new model, the 2002 Turbo. This pocket-rocket version of the already successful 2002 series became the first European production car to feature a turbocharger.
Using the standard 2002 tii two door bodyshell the 2002 Turbo featured a racing style front spoiler, wider wheel arches and a bootlid spoiler. Underneath the 2002 Turbo bonnet sat a tuned 1990cc four cylinder which produced a staggering 170bhp.
The new car certainly enjoyed a great deal of publicity in its one year of production, all 1672 examples were built in left hand drive form.
