BMW 2002 Turbo

BMW 2002 Turbo

One of my fav classic cars,, BMW 2002.

The 2002 is one of BMW’s most famous automobile models. A two-door sedan based on the four-door 1600, it cemented the company’s reputation for compact sporting sedans. The 2002 was the forerunner of the BMW 3 Series and an inspiration for the new 1 Series Coupe. It was produced from 1968 to 1976.

A three-door model, the 2002 Touring, was also available. The Touring was not a full station wagon, and may resemble a modern hatchback. BMW would not offer a Touring model again until the late 1980s, with the 3 Series.

The 1500 had already begun BMW’s reputation for sports sedans, but the 2002 may be considered its ultimate incarnation. With its 1990 cc engine, it produced 120 bhp (88 kW) in the 2002ti, and 130 bhp (96 kW) in the high-performance 2002tii. The 2002tii had a top speed of 185 km/h (115 mph).

The 2002 Turbo (production 1,672) was launched at the 1973 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was the company’s first turbocharged production car.[citation needed] Power was raised to 170 hp (125 kW) at 5,800 rpm, with 240 Nm (177 ft·lbf) of torque. Unlike Saab and Porsche, companies which also made some of the first turbocharged production cars around this time, BMW has made little use of turbocharging in its gasoline engines since – with the exception of the M102 engine installed in the ’79-’86 BMW 745i. This trend has broken in 2006 with the introduction of the award-winning BMW N54 twin turbo engine in the 335i. Notably, BMW also introduced a twin turbo diesel engine in 2005 initially for the e60 5 Series, named 535d, it was also made available later in the e90 3 Series range. Both petrol and diesel units have won awards and received high approval from critics.

A cabriolet version was produced in small numbers. These were produced by Baur of Germany, which to this day as IVM Automotive, continues to convert BMWs.

Maybach DS8 Zeppelin Cabriolet Spohn Streamliner (1934)

Maybach DS8 Zeppelin Cabriolet Spohn Streamliner (1934)

Wilhelm Maybach, collaborator and friend of Gottlieb Daimler and the ingenious designer of the “Mercedes”, the first “proper” car, left Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft, where he had worked as Chief Engineer, in 1907. Together with his son, Karl, he started developing his own engines which in his opinion were excellently suited to driving the airships which had just begun cruising the skies. He approached Count Zeppelin, convinced him of the quality and performance of his engines and together they founded "Luftfahrzeug-Motorenbau GmbH“ in Bissingen near Stuttgart in 1909. Maybach’s son Karl was appointed Technical Director of this new aero engine company.
In 1912, the company – an early joint venture – moved to Friedrichshafen, to premises adjacent to Count Zeppelin’s airship factory. Until around 1920, Wilhelm Maybach intensively supported his son in his development work, bringing forth top-quality and highly progressive petrol and diesel engines as well as transmissions over several decades.

In 1921, Karl Maybach began producing his own cars in Friedrichshafen, engaging in the manufacture and assembly of frame, suspension, engine, transmission, radiator, firewall and major components. Maybach and his staff were less interested in bodywork design – this was the realm of specialist bodybuilders who tailored their designs to the customers’ wishes.

Close cooperation developed in the course of the years with the bodybuilding company of Herrmann Spohn in nearby Ravensburg; they even engaged in the manufacture of mini-series. Nevertheless, Spohn had to share the cake with other bodybuilders like Gläser in Dresden, Auer in Stuttgart and Neuss and Erdmann & Rossi in Berlin, to name but a few.

Thanks to their outstanding engineering, smooth-running engines and the quality appointments of the bodies, crafted by hand to the customers’ wishes, the exclusive Maybach cars very quickly established themselves in the world market – as limousines, voluminous Pullman versions, two-to-seven-seater coupés, cabriolets and roadsters. They were direct competitors of – and in the opinion of some contemporaries even superior to – the “Grand Mercedes”, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Isotta-Fraschini and other luxury models.

The Maybach “Zeppelin” is one of the most famous models in the line-up of international luxury cars from the nineteen-thirties – a terrific twelve-cylinder car that was built in numerous versions between 1930 and 1937.
A contemporary test report enthused “… The Maybach Zeppelin models rank among the few cars in the international top class. They are highly luxurious, extremely lavish in their engineering and attainable only for a chosen few, not only on account of the small series in which these splendid cars are built.” (Allgemeine Automobilzeitung 1933, no. 35).
The Maybach Zeppelin DS 8, model year 1932, with chassis number 1387, and today owned by the Mercedes-Benz Museum, is one of these luxury limousines. Its completely restored bodywork, specially tailored by Messrs. Spohn in Ravensburg, is a four-door six-to-seven-seater cabriolet with long wheelbase and ample space for feeling at ease in comfortable leather chairs. Itself a feast for the eyes, the eight-litre V12 engine (number 25041) is still in a virtually “straight-from-the-factory” condition and in perfect working order. …
