A middle finger in the face of the first Oil Crisis: that was BMW's 2002 Turbo, introduced in late 1973 as Europe's first turbocharged production car. Generating an astonishing (for the era) 170 horsepower from 2-liters of displacement and 0.55 bar of boost, the 2002 Turbo boasted a top speed of nearly 130 miles per hour, backed up by its cheeky reverse-lettered air dam stickers that advised Autobahn motorists to "rechtsfahren" asap.
New from Kyosho is this brilliant 1:18-scale diecast metal replica of the legendary BMW 2002 Turbo. Detail is outstanding from bumper to bumper, with fully realized engine compartment, cockpit, and a trunk that features a lift-out spare tire cover. Available in white or silver, the 2002 Turbo from Kyosho is certain to thrill fans of BMW's early performance cars.
