2000Tuesday: 1974 BMW 2002 Turbo

With only 1,672 produced now some 45 years ago, your odds of coming across a 2002 Turbo today are fairly unlikely. Yet over the past few years I’ve taken a look at a steady stream of the legendary hot E10. While the M5 is often credited with being the first real ‘super sedan’, a decade before that model launched BMW’s fledgling Motorsports division breathed heavily on the diminutive 2-door sedan, creating a pint-sized sports car killer. I covered what made it so special back in 2017:

The third 2002 we’ve looked at in three weeks, this is one that definitely ticks the right boxes as the collector car left out of the EAG Legends collection. But what will it take to buy today?

If I’m completely honest, I was baffled by the S14 Baur Targa from last week. It’s not so much that it existed, because in theory it was pretty cool – but the execution left me wanting. It was the bidding that really left me scratching my head, though – if the bids are to be believed, watchers hit just over $65,000 when the auction ended and it didn’t meet reserve! It’s back on the auction block with the same $70,000 Buy It Now this week that it had last.

In contrast, I’m not at all surprised that today’s 2002 Turbo has already hit just that number – $70,000 – in bids so far, yet has almost a week to go on the auction. I’m also not surprised that the reserve is still on. These cars often trade well over $100,000 today. I am a bit surprised by the presentation, though. The seller is the same as the Targa, and like the Targa, this auction has pretty bad photos. I’m not sure why some sellers have such a hard time getting a good shot of the whole car, as with modern phones it’s literally a one minute at most affair, but such is life. It’s also strange that the seller has blocked out part of the chassis number as they provided the whole number for the Targa. Painted in 060 Polaris Silver Metallic, it looks fairly original and not as shining as other examples we’ve seen. The dark gray 13″ x 5.5″ steel wheels are correct but rare to see these days. One strange part? According to the BMW M Registry, the exhaust was moved from the side to the center starting with chassis 4291213. This car’s exhaust is in the center but the chassis number displayed seems to predate that number.

But the allure of the rare Turbo in the U.S. is strong, and this one should attract some more big-dollar bids before it’s over next week. When properly presented, these cars draw well over double the current amount. The presentation and quality of this example probably isn’t top-dollar material, but it’s still impressive to see.
