Innovative fuel injection replacing its predecessors carburetion system and a lot more horsepower made the 1972 BMW 2002 tii a clear leg up on the 2002 ti it was meant to replace. For its part, the 2002 ti had earned a respectable racetrack reputation and ensured continued demand for BMWs two-door alternative to the originally four-door New Class sedans. That is effectively what the 1972 BMW 2002 tii wasa powerful motor in a compact chassis. Not that the New Class consisted of gargantuan land yachts, but the 02 series to which the 2002 belonged was shorter and marketed as a compact executive car, with compact being the operative word. A two-door design and tighter body lent more legitimacy to its sports car branding.
Displacement of 1,990 cc and 97 kW gave the 1972 BMW 2002 tii its smash mouth 130 horsepower. All of that motorized muscle sat in a chassis nine inches shorter than the New Class sedans and some kilograms lighter. It was no wonder the 02 series enjoyed a good deal of racing success; the model benefited from brilliant BMW motor design and leaner dimensions at once. What the 2002 tii offered was 11 more horses and a cutting edge upgrade from the already maximized 2002 tis carburetor to the fuel-injection model of the future. Modern drivers will find the 2002 tii is equal to the presents driving standards, certainly from a raw power standpoint. See for yourself with a Beverly Hills Car Club test drive.
