In the 1960s, Alfa Romeo dominated the affordable sports car segment, producing outstanding vehicles that sold well. BMW aimed to enter this market a bit late but did so in a remarkable fashion with their 02 series.
They took the bold step of adding a KKK supercharger to their M10 engine, boosting its power output to 170 hp. This led to the birth of the BMW 2002 Turbo in 1973. With its bold fenders, the unmistakable "Turbo" badge on the front grille, and wider 13-inch wheels, this car briefly became the ultimate dream for racing enthusiasts. We're thrilled to share this exquisite BMW 2002 Turbo artwork by Petr Pereshivaylov with you.
The BMW 2002 Turbo can go from 0 to 62 mph in under 7 seconds, a remarkable feat considering it was 1973. Only 1672 BMW 2002 Turbos were produced due to the oil crisis of the 1970s. As a result, the car has become extremely rare and is highly sought after by BMW collectors.
