Imported in June 2005 with a mere 68,687 km (42,800 miles) & Two previous owners.

Europe’s first turbocharged production road car.

External styling was very “boy-racer” Motorsport stripes were added down each flank, with a boot spoiler to aid high-speed stability, wide arches to house 185 x13 wheels, and aggressive front spoiler and no front bumper. Press models had “2002” and “turbo” added to the front spoiler in reverse script, so any car in front of the Turbo would know exactly what had just suddenly appeared behind him. The Press had a field day with BMW’s irresponsibleness, so it was decided to drop the reverse lettering on all production models.

The car often described as ‘Jekyll and Hyde’, “a punch in the kidney’s” said some motoring journalists when the turbocharger suddenly cut-in at just above 4000 Rpm. Famous for it’s turbo-lag, “floor the accelerator and nothing, then suddenly a whoosh of power and off you’d shoot, like a bullet from a gun”. Understandably many ended up embedded in trees, making numbers today even more scarce. One thing can be sure the BMW 2002 Turbo is the ultimate 2002 and the lucky few owners that own one today are exclusive members of a very unique club.

The car was detailed by a professional then then treated to Supernatural wax, it now stays clean (haven't washed it in 3 months) and just requires a light wipe with Quik Detailer and Micro-fibre cloth. Tyres last with Meguiars High-Gloss Gel. Superb stuff.
