The BMW 02 series was a range of compact executive cars produced by the German automaker between 1966 and 1977. With its structural profile based on a shortened version of new sedans, the 02 series caught car enthusiasts’ attention as it offered an attractive blend of power, agility and style in addition to a reasonable price tag.
During 1973 the model yielded a major aesthetic redesign, with the implementation of round taillights instead of rectangular ones and elongated bumpers to meet U.S. safety regulations.
A perfect example is this 1973 BMW 2002 Yellow Racer courtesy of Petrology, as it’s super clean and well restored. The vehicle has been upgraded with a turbo kit, Rota RB-R wheels, new radial, power four-wheel disk brakes, Bilstein struts and new suspension bushings.
Furthermore, a new high performance exhaust with a tune tubed header and new Dual Webers, as well as restored Recaro seats iconize the racing history of the 2002 series.
Overall, this refinement creates a unique vehicle like nothing in the market. The suggested retail price is listed at $29,500 USD.
In current BMW news, the company unveiled its 500-Horsepower M8 GTE for the International GT racing scene.
