The late-1960s were a period of both dynamic change and continued success for Bavarian automobile manufacturer BMW, which released its 1967 BMW 2000 Sedan during that time. As was well known by then, the Neue Klasse move had been an enormously successful marketing gambit. With each model released or retooled from 1961 onwards, BMW continued to enjoy high marks in terms of both professional reviews and consumer demand. And when it seemed a design and engineering ceiling had been reached with the superbly selling 1800 series, BMW sought to outdo itself once again. The 1967 BMW 2000 Sedan was a furtherance of what the original 2000 had been intended to offer: a step up from the 1800.
What the New Class sedans had achieved in the automobile marketplace was a degree of favorable familiarity and a reputation for quality engineering. In those respects, the 1967 BMW 2000 Sedan did not represent a major departure from its precursors; after all, none of the New Class entries had been poorly received. What the 2000 did offer was more power cascading forth from a retooling of that famous M10 SOHC motor, and in a polished exterior that spoke of class and refinement. The M10 in this model had been reconfigured for 1990 cc of displacement that contributed to its 100+ horsepower. By this point in the New Class era, driving comfort and stability had also been refined, which ensured those horses were reined in tightly.
