1970 BMW “3002” prototype

Here’s something I didn’t know about—-in 1970, the BMW Werks team developed a weird concoction of part BMW 2002 and part E9 coupe and came up with the 3002. The car raced in one race, the 1970 Tour De Corse—-and the car still exists, although it’s in pretty ratty shape somewhere in California, according to someone who has seen it there.

Around 270hp with a 6 cylinder and weighing around 950 kg—–the car was surely a bit of an animal for the time.

ORIGINAL PICS from 1970:

In it’s most RECENT condition…but still alive!
