The BMW 02 series was a range of compact executive cars produced by the German automaker BMW from 1966 to 1977. The series included several models, including the 1600, 1602, 1800, 1802, 2000, and 2002. However, the most popular model was the BMW 2002, which was produced from 1968 to 1976.
The BMW 2002 was powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 100 horsepower, which was a significant increase from the 1.6-liter engine found in the 1600 and 1602 models. The 2002 also featured a sporty design with a short wheelbase, flared wheel arches, and a sleek, aerodynamic body.
The BMW 2002 quickly gained a reputation for its excellent handling and driving dynamics, thanks in part to its rear-wheel drive layout and independent suspension. It was also praised for its build quality, reliability, and durability.
Over the years, the BMW 2002 has become a cult classic among car enthusiasts, with many enthusiasts restoring and modifying these cars to their original or modified specifications. Today, well-maintained examples of the BMW 2002 are highly sought after by collectors, and the car remains an icon of BMW’s heritage and engineering excellence.
