@ Fangio Man: Interesting, turbochargers became more popular in the mid-late 80s through the early 90s, so this car was got a turbocharger early.

@ Fangio Man: I think 2002 has something to do with its engine displacement, LOL, it confused me, too at first. :D

This is a cool looking car!

When I read 2002 I was confused first, because I expected it to be from 2002 then. :D

@Bijan: you are wrong.. the 1962 Oldsmobile Cutlass jetfire was the first mass-produced petrol car with turbo charger.

1962
The existing F-85 models returned, and a convertible was added to the line-up in September, available in both standard and Cutlass versions. The Cutlass was now a "hardtop" model, without a center post and door window frames, the previous year it had been a "coupe" with a "B" pillar and door window frames.
Bigger news was the arrival of the Jetfire model, a Cutlass hardtop with a Garrett turbocharged version of the 215 V8 rated at 215 bhp (160.3 kW) and 301 lbf·ft (408 N·m), bucket seats and console, unique trim, and a vacuum gauge mounted in the console (where it was almost invisible). Although much faster than a standard F-85, the Jetfire was criticized for having the same soft suspension as its less-powerful brothers, for its lack of a tachometer and other instruments, and for the poor shift quality of both the automatic transmission and the optional four-speed. Car and Driver tested an automatic Jetfire and obtained a 0-60 time of 9.2 seconds, with a top speed of 110 mph (176 km/h). The Jetfire's high cost (nearly $300 over a standard Cutlass coupe) and reliability problems with its turbocharged engines limited sales to 3,765.

I know a fellow who still races one of these in the SCCA. Very impressive car for 1973. I remember seeing some BMW 2002 models racing at Summit Point raceway back in 1981, when they were still kicking butt against much newer cars.

The Hockenheim laptime does not look impressive from a today point of vew... in 1974 this car was less than 2seconds slower than a Porsche 911 Turbo..the same different as we have today between a 997 Turbo and a M3 CSL...

The holigan car from BMW from the early 1970´s... the panting was claimed to be warpainting because of the mirrowed letters at the fron, that way other drivers could read through their rear mirrow who was coming from behind... market at the first oil crisis this perfromance icone turned to be into a flop.. after 10month BMW stoped prodction.. today highly seeked collectors car..
