The BMW 2002 is such a special car. This cherished example is tastefully updated with a set of 325i rims from the 1980s and also a comfy pair of racing seats that surely provide far more support than the originals in vinyl ever could.
As a previous owner of a 1975 VW SuperBeetle in this exact shade of green — I can assure you that it is one of the most love-able colors out there.
But what makes this 1976 BMW so special is that is is clearly so adored by its driver. Not a spot of grime anywhere inside or out — and that includes the engine compartment! This snorty 2.0-liter engine is plenty feisty and keeps the helm of the 2002 so light that corners become a treat to carve.
That is the best part of every great sports sedan since — and they all owe a great debt to this little charmer.
