Motorsports Monday: 1972 BMW 2002tii

As vintage circuit competition cars have steadily ascended into the automotive Valhalla of pricing thanks to success of popular races like the Le Mans Classic, Monterey Historics, and of course the many events at Goodwood, the fallout has been to pull up related motorsports. For some time, vintage rally cars were generally considered used up, tired old hulks. But the fringe of enthusiasts that loved seeing the flatout and fearless driving attitude adopted by many a rally driver has grown to a much greater audience with new races like the Targa Newfoundland and Tasmania to name a few. While those races attract much newer and faster metal, there’s still a huge audience that loves seeing the pre-Quattro 1970s vintage rally cars. With high revving naturally aspirated motors and rear drive, this was the original ‘Formula Drift’, with constantly sideways Ford Escorts, Fiat 131 Abarths and the superhero of the 1970s WRC scene, the Lancia Stratos. But mixed in there too were some Porsche 911s, and of course, the effervescent BMW 2002:

While this 2002 isn’t an original rally example, the build looks pretty good from what is shown. The color combination evokes the image of the Alpina cars, but is original and looks clean. Neat too are the Braid competition wheels, and the classic ‘Roundie’ simple design is offset well by the updated racing paraphernalia. Not much is detailed about the current condition and close inspection shows this isn’t a museum piece by any means. On top of that, it’s priced pretty aggressively high at nearly $47,000. For that amount, you could build your own to taste, so as this car has no historical race history or important names attached to it (at least, none are disclosed) it’ll have to be a fair bit less expensive before it becomes a good deal. Still, looking at it I can immediately hear the M15 screaming close to redline with the driver looking squarely out the passenger window and a rooster tail of dirt emerging from those squat rear tires…
