1969 BMW 2002

Few changes occurred to the BMW 2002 for the 1969 model year as it had only been introduced the prior year. BMW decided to would be too difficult to rework the 1600ti to comply with new U.S. emissions standards so they created a bigger engine that was only slightly heavier and delivered 15 additional horsepower. With a price tag of under $3,000 in the U.S., the BMW 2002 soon became the company's best-selling model.

Power was from a single-overhead-cam four-cylinder engine that featured an aluminum head and a displacement size of 121.4 cubic-inches. Power was rated at just over 100 horsepower. A more powerful version of the engine was available, offered on the 2002tilux and 2002ti, and was rated at 120 DIN. Disc brakes were in the front with drums in the rear. A four-speed manual gearbox was standard with a 3.64:1 gear ratio.

BMW produced 147,841 vehicles in 1969 with 54,209 examples exported.

BMW introduced the 2002 Turbo version in 1973 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the company's first turbocharged production car. The turbo engine used a Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection system and a KK&K turbocharger to help it produce 170 horsepower and 177 lb/ft of torque. Introduced just before the 1973 oil crisis meant that a mere 1,672 examples were built.

The BMW 2002 would remain in production through 1975 with 339,092 examples built. Among the most exclusive creations were the Baur Cabriolets of which just 2,517 examples were built.
