The BMW 2002, manufactured between 1968 and 1975, is one of the most iconic and collectable vehicles to come out of the Bavarian Motor Works stable. It was born out of a logical progression - putting a larger engine in a modified version of an existing model. The base, single-carb 1990cc model put out 100bhp (approximately 75kw), while a dual-carb, high-compression model produced 120bhp (approximately 89kw).

Small, nimble and powerful relative to its size, the 2002 is a lot of fun to drive - even more so if you're able to find a 2002 Turbo, which was launched at the 1973 Frankfurt Motor Show and became Europe's first turbocharged production car. That unmistakeable BMW sedan style is at its finest with the 2002 - it's not hard to spot the 3-Series DNA. 

Finding a 2002 in New Zealand is no mean feat - your best bet is to trawl the forums on Oldschool.co.nz or set an email alert on TradeMe Motors
