Evaluation: BMW Classic certified. Matching numbers. Restored in Canada in the mid-2010s to a high standard, and no major issues are apparent.
Bottom Line: BMW’s first turbocharged road car and the first turbocharged car anywhere after the demise of the Corvair, the 2002 packs 40 more horsepower than a 2002tii but does so with notorious turbo lag and a tii is arguably more fun to drive. Even so, the Turbos are quite rare and they are the fastest of the series. The best examples started commanding six-figure prices in the mid- to late-2010s. This example definitely qualifies as being among the best examples, and it is also the most expensive 2002 Turbo we’ve seen sell at auction.
