For the 1969 BMW 2000, it simply wasnt enough to be the end of an era of New Class machines. No, nowhere close. So, BMW decided that in its last year of production, a new model type ought to be made available: the 2000tii. The 2000tii was the most powerful variant of the 2000 ever produced, capable of 130 horsepower and ludicrous amounts of torque. The reason for this dramatic boost in power would be BMWs first-ever use of a fuel injector, utilizing Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection. Less than two thousand of this, the final New Class sedan model variant, were produced. In truth, this was the end of an era in cars. From the failures of the big V8s targeted at businessmen, to the failure of the 600 to sell, to the dazzling success of the 700 and the subsequent advent of the New Class, BMWs post-war years were nothing if not eventful. However, wild ride aside, the company was doing magnificently well at this point, and recognized a need to move forward in order to keep pace with the times, which were changing quickly. It is said that the cars of an era often reflect the society of that same time period. How true would that still be if BMW had worse timing than it did?
