1976 BMW 2002, Custom Turbo Build

posted in: Online Around the Net | 0



“You are looking at probably one of the more thorough 2002 custom builds out there. This 1976 BMW 2002 combines a beautiful and aggressive appearance, and backs it up with well-done drivetrain/mechanicals front to rear. Definitely an eye catching color in Porsche Signal Green (as seen on GT3 RS), sharp interior combo of black and suede, and of course the turbocharged motor. Recently finished build, just attended its first showing at EuroHangar 2013 and was voted one of the top 15 cars in a field of almost 400. Overall we’ve been very pleased with the response to the car and it’s certainly the only one you’ll find in this desirable combination. Description as follows:
