Following the standard 2002’s success, BMW launched the 2002 Tii in 1971, again at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Designed by the legendary German engineer, Wilhelm Hofmeister, it quickly gained popularity for its remarkable performance and handling. The 2002 Tii was specifically built to offer a more dynamic driving experience, whilst boasting a fuel-injected 2-litre M10 engine with a rating of 130bhp, delivering a top speed of 118mph yet maintaining practicality for everyday use, solidifying its status as a timeless classic in BMW’s history. The 2002 Tii Lux is a rare find, with only 3,680 right-hand drive Tii models ever produced, and just a limited number equipped with the luxurious Lux package, which offered enhanced interior features including wooden accents, a padded steering wheel, velour-covered seats, and other home comforts. Under the bonnet, this car has a mechanical Kugelfischer fuel injection system, which contributed to its impressive performance. The forward-leaning stance and low waistline along with the large glasshouse provide the 2002 Tii Lux with a purposeful appearance and excellent all-round visibility. Acquired by its current owner in August 2014, this BMW has received meticulous care and attention. Although there is no history file from prior ownership, invoices indicate ongoing maintenance and restoration work carried out over recent years. Notably, the car underwent a repaint between 2016 and 2017, giving it a factory-correct Golf Yellow finish, a testament to the owner’s commitment to preserving its authenticity. The car comes with its Owner’s Manual, two sets of keys, a spare wheel and the factory jack, making it ready for its next owner to enjoy. With just 13,000 miles on an unstamped BMW replacement engine, this rare and sought after 2002 Tii Lux is sure to impress collectors and enthusiasts alike. A BMW Classic Certificate is also part of its comprehensive history file, adding further value to this remarkable 1970s sports saloon offered at a hugely enthusiastic price point. A wonderful Lux example wearing its original colours and presented in wonderful condition. More Details Lot 609 Bid On Lot 609
