The BMW 2002
a comprehensive guide to the classic sporting saloon
5 7/8 in. x 8 1/2 in.
The BMW engineers did as Hoffmann suggested, and the result took the motoring world by storm on its announcement in 1968. Not only did it provide the performance orientated model which Hoffmann wanted for the USA, but in European guise without the power sapping emissions control gear, it offered affordable high performance in a compact and agile package. So popular did the 2002 range become that it went on to sell just under 418,000 examples over the seven years of its production.
Today the qualities which made the 2002 range so appealing in the late 1960s and early 1970s continue to endear them to the motoring enthusiasts. The 2002 models are widely and rightly recognised as classics of their period, and enjoy a large and committed following. This book will be welcomed by enthusiasts everywhere, and will also form invaluable reference for those interested in the classic sporting saloon car.
