1971-1975 BMW 2002 Saloon/Cabriolet specifications

1971-1975 BMW 2002 Saloon/Cabriolet specifications Classic and Performance Car

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 engine was essentially a bored out version of the old 1.8-litre unit, producing 100bhp in standard form. The twin- carburettor TI version, with 120bhp was far more exciting, proving a real handful on challenging roads. The Baur-bodied cabriolet version had no rivals when it was launched, but failed to sell well – perhaps because of its high price and lack of body rigidity. Prices are for saloons; Cabriolets are worth double.
