BMW 2002 TURBO (1972-1973) CAR HISTORY

Car review on BMW 2002 TURBO

Marketed to bolster the ebbing reputation of BMW's entry-level saloon in its run-out twilight years, the BMW 2002 Turbo lasted only 10 months into 1973. When petrol prices almost doubled overnight, shocked car buyers became acutely aware of the delicacy of oil supply from an Arab monopoly: suddenly this 17-mpg tearaway looked like an anachronism. The first sign of BMW's loss of nerve was the disappearance of the aggressive reversed Turbo lettering on the front spoiler, but by then the Turbo's days were already numbered: it was discontinued by a nervous Munich after only 1,672 had been produced.


The Turbo, all left-hand drive because and the blower occupies the space normally reserved for the steering column in the right-hand drive car, used the injected two-litre slant-four engine fitted with a KKK turbocharger and made an impressive 170 bhp. It did without a wastegate, intercooler or complex electronics and felt much the same as the standard 2002 at low to medium revs, though the turbo boost - from 4500 rpm - tended to cut in rather suddenly and could make the car a handful. Geared for 20 mph (32 kph) per 100rpm in the fifth gear of its special ZF five- speed box, the Turbo ran out of breath at 130 mph (209 kph). Turbos ran a 3.36:1 ratio in their 40 per cent limited slip back ends.

The Turbo had stronger driveshafts and bearings all round, but still used the usual BMW configuration of MacPherson struts at the front and semi- trailing arms at the rear. Spring rates was increased all round, and there were anti-roll bars at both ends and Bilstein dampers on the back. The tyres - on special 6in x 13in (15cm x 33cm) Mahle alloy wheels — were 185/70xl3s Michelin XWXs. The brakes, which were vented discs gripped by four-pot callipers up front, large drums at the rear, had only one servo to the standard 2002's two. Inside, the Turbo featured rake-adjustable buckets. The only other changes were the addition of a boost gauge in a pod tacked on to the centre of the dash and a three-spoke sports steering wheel, while the face of the instrument binnacle became red.


The rare and exciting 2002 is now one of the most collectable 70s BMWs.
