1971-1975 BMW 2002 Saloon specifications

1971-1975 BMW 2002 Saloon specifications Classic and Performance Car

A larger engine was the making of BMW's small 2002 saloon.


The 2002 was introduced a couple of years after the 1502/1602 and ended up cementing the series’ reputation as the car to beat in the sporting saloon sector. The 2-litre M10-series engine was essentially a bored-out version of the old 1.8-litre unit, producing 100bhp in standard form and proving an absolute gem. With 120bhp, the twin-carburettor Ti version was more exciting, but also a real handful on challenging roads. A 2002 that hasn't rusted too badly is one of the most sensible ways of owning an early-'70s sporting saloon.
