BMW takes us back into its history as far back as 1966. A new video released on Youtube showcases the 02 Series which was introduced to the world as the 1600-2 two-door. The 1600-2, later renamed the 1602, was itself expanded into the 02 Series 1600 and 2002.

Using the engine and suspension of the original four-door design in a smaller and lighter two-door unit body, the 02 series, especially the 2002, caught auto enthusiasts’ attention and established BMW as an international brand.

The 2002 was replaced in 1975 by another legendary model: the 3 Series.


Later this year, BMW will launch the 2 Series Coupe and Convertible, and this video could be the first step in an upcoming marketing campaign.
