Car of the Month – February 2013

Finally after a long wait, it’s back COTM.

February 2013

Starting with Geoff’s lovely 2002, also For Sale

1974 2002 (tii badge is a ruse! Not my idea, must have been previous owner)

2L four pot with dual weber carbs and a stainless abarth exhaust. There is also an extra oil cooler in the front. It goes like stink, can’t remember the BHP but think 135 on one piece of paper I have in the file.

Bought it from Schaefer BMW in Idstein in Germany when I used to live over there who are also a McLaren specialist so it was in good hands. Car was originally Swiss and at some point got a new motor back in ‘84 I believe.

E21 cross spoke alloys were my addition with Continental tyres.

It’s a left hooker which I would not like in a modern car, but it is so narrow and there is so much glass in it, it has never been a problem and I can lean across to the other side or middle of cockpit for perfect vision.

Has been maintained in London by George at TECHNOSPORT whose other hobby is a ground-up built racing M3 E46, so it has been in good hands…

Blue vinyl interior, nice carpets rust free throughout. When I bought it they recoated the underside with the black stuff (not Guinness).

Insurance for a left hand drive never been a problem, got classic insurance through RH Classic for about 130 quid a year!
