Wider than usual: 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo

Finally we can consider this the “Bavarian Week”, which ends with this 2002 Turbo in need of some care, but with a quite good overall look.

The seller says that this was sold new in Germany and then exported to Japan more than twenty years ago. It’s not a show car but, as the seller says, it was never restored so it’s just like the time made her. The Recaro driver seat has some problems along with some undercarriage rust spots which don’t seem serious.

The car is equipped with a set of BBS-Mahle “deep dish” rims which are nothing but beautiful, other than being period-correct for the car. Here there is one thing only to be worried for: if the KKK turbine is gone, prepare yourself to spend $10,000 for a nos one (if, and when,  you find it). Find this car for sale at €28,900 (today $39,000) here in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.
