Launched in 1973 at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the 2002 Turbo was the first turbocharged production car offered by BMW. Having raced in hill climbs and rallies and won the 1970 24 Hours of Nürburgring, the 2002 quickly became a sought-after performance sedan. Fitted with a KKK turbocharger, Kugelfischer fuel injection, riveted fender flares, wider wheels, vivid motor sport graphics, and front air dam, these limited-production cars became immediate performance stars.

This beautiful Turbo is one of only 615 Polaris Silver examples produced by BMW. It was formerly owned by German BMW and Alpina racer Dieter Hegels, who raced BMW 2002s, 3.0 CSLs, and various Alpinas, and was the winner of the 1970 German Circuit Master Championship, the predecessor to today’s DTM. After Hegels had owned this 2002 for several years, he and his team of BMW experts performed a comprehensive restoration. The mechanicals were attended to and motor sports graphics and beautiful paint were applied with care. It should be noted that, according to a letter from the restorer, although a correct type engine is fitted, it is not believed to be the original unit for this car. A BMW Classic Vehicle Certificate, owner’s manual, jack, tool kit, and car cover accompany the sale.

Offering brilliant handling and astonishing performance, and draped in iconic motor sports livery, this BMW 2002 Turbo presents the next fortunate owner a highly desirable combination of rarity, captivating historic importance, and an attractive restoration.
