Official BMW Club will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the seminal 2002 Tii
This year, the BMW Car Club will be marking the 50th birthday of the Bavarian company’s seminal 2002 Tii at The London Classic Car Show.
Launched back in 1971, the 2002 Tii transformed BMW’s fortunes and laid the foundations for its now famous sporty saloon credentials. With its newly fuel injected 2-litre engine, wider tyres, bigger brakes and beefed-up rear-wheel-drive chassis, the Tii model offered an intoxicating mix of fine handling and then pace-setting 118mph performance.
To mark this golden anniversary, the BMW club will have two of these seminal sporty saloons as well as an example of the later 2002 Turbo on their stand. In addition, they will be screening a selection of special BMW 2002 videos and images for our visitors to enjoy!
The BMW’s full history will also be displayed on their stand as they will be exhibiting an early 328 from the thirties, a stunning 507 roadster from the fifties, a beautifully restored E12 530LE, a rare E30 M3 Evo 2 and a mighty Alpina B10 alongside other significant and sought-after Bee-Ems such as an E21 323i, a E36 328i Sport and a stunning 635 CSi coupe.
In addition, the show will also be celebrating other significant and iconic car marques, Bugatti, Lancia and Jaguar, with special birthday displays. Both the Bugatti Brescia and Lancia Lambda reach their 100 th birthday while the treasured Jaguar E-type turns 60 with a sensational display of racing and road models taking Syon Park by storm.
