A Cult Car
 
 

The 2002 is the most popular model in BMW's seminal 02 Series, which has been lauded repeatedly from it's introduction in 1968 to it's final production in 1976.  Probably the most famous review of the 2002 was authored by the immortal David E. Davis, Jr. for Car & Driver magazine upon the car's inaugural launch in the US.

Enjoy this full transcript that I recreated from the original article.


(I hope sharing this amazing prose with my fellow 02 fanatics is OK - but if there's any copyright concerns I'll be happy to remove it.)
