The early-1970s were a period of financial stability and increasing market share for German automobile manufacturer BMW. A decade earlier, the company had pulled itself back from the brink with the rollout of its sporty and game-changing New Class sedans. Ten years and several design variants later, the BMW 2002 tii was released to a consumer base that had come to expect from the Bavarians engineering excellence and solid performance. In both regards, the BMW 2002 tii met expectations and carried on the legacy its engineers had worked to achieve beginning in 1961. With a 2-liter, 97kW engine housed in a two-door sedan, the BMW 2002 tii cranked out a muscular 130 horses of power and had proven itself a successor racer in its earlier ti incarnation.
By 1966, when the 02 series launched, BMWs New Class had contributed significantly to a very particular understanding of who the company was and what its motors could do. It also given rise to what was arguably the first of its kind sports sedan, complete with four doors and a spacious trunk. What the 2002 represented was a lateral move into a still sportier design, with its shorter, more compact body and fewer (by two) doors. Further, its fuel-injection system, which departed from the tis carburetor design, contributed to this 2002 variants 115mph top-speed.
