In 1973 BMW launched the 2002 Turbo, the world's first fuel-injected, turbocharged production car.
With its flared, muscular fenders the 2002 Turbo made a strong statement. Even the reversed "2002 turbo" script on the front spoiler caused an uproar. It was intended to notify drivers, through their rear view mirrors, that an autobahn heavyweight was fast approaching. The implication? Get out of the way! This proved too provocative for the German government which threatened to ban the car. BMW demurred and offered the Turbo without its telltale graphics, though many drivers added them later.
The 2002 Turbo was produced for only two years. Just over 1,600 cars were manufactured. Today the car has stood the test of time not only for its power, handling, and bold looks, but as the car that ushered in the modern, turbocharging era.
