1966-1972 BMW 2000 Saloon specifications


The 2000 was the ultimate evolution of the 1500/1800cc saloon car line. The medium-sized saloon seemed its most appealing with the bored-out in-line-four under the bonnet, especially in fuel injected tii form, which packed a useful 135bhp. Interesting to drive and a bit of a handful in the wet, the 2000 set the tone for the next generations of BMW’s mid-sized saloons – sporting and satisfying. Survival rate in the UK is low, although still fairly commonplace in Germany, and that would be your first place to look when buying.
