The 2002 tii is arguably the first of BMW's "Ultimate Driving Machines." 1600 and 2002 owners would be the ones doing the arguing, but the tii combines a superbly designed, great handling chassis with years of development to resolve any little shortcomings in the initial design (like brakes). On top of that it has an advanced mechanical fuel injection system from Kugelfischer that broke the back of exhaust emissions and still raised the 2-litre engine's power from 113hp to 140hp and torque from 116 lb-ft to 145 lb-ft. Quality engineering and construction completed the specification for a nearly-perfect sports sedan. This 1972 2002 tii has been gone through with a competent, caring, intelligent restoration with a few upgrades for performance and appearance. Equipped with the standard 4-speed gearbox, it has a Sony CD stereo system and sliding sunroof. The paint and red vinyl interior are done to high standards. The car's look is enhanced by the choice of Black for the exterior color which harmonizes with the chin spoiler, rear deck spoiler, removed front bumper and 8-spoke Panasport alloy wheels with BFG "Traction T/A" blackwall tires. It looks every bit the high performance pocket rocket that it was in 1971, and performs the same, with great, tight handling and a free-revving little engine that puts out gobs of power and torque. This is an exhilarating package, as much fun on the road as it is on track days or at an evening cruise-in. It is a rare and highly desirable model at the core of BMW's postwar legend.
