If you are looking at this auction, ou already know how rare and special this car is. There are websites devoted to information about the 2002 tii, ut here are a couple of paragraphs describing this groundbreaking BMW:

"The 1972 BMW 2002 tii is everything that modern BMWs aren't. These are the cars that started the 'Sport Sedan' segment and the tii was the best of the breed...consider it the 'M' of the day."

"The BMW 2002 tii, xquisite penance for the unrehabilitated car addict. No matter how you try, ou can't help but like it. It is the essence of motoring truth: no strobe stripes, o phony teardrop racing mirrors, o triple turret taillights. Just finely honed machinery in the simplest steel and glass case. And it works. It handles—with the agility of a pro flankerback—and the fuel-injected engine can make the parson breathe hard." - Car & Driver 1972

"Not all was disaster and doomsday in 1972. BMW introduced a hotter version of the 2002, he 140-hp tii, veritable chemotherapy for the scourge of domestic iron. Marketers of today owe the 2002 a debt as one of the first cars to successfully decouple and remix attributes like luxury, portiness, uality, ize, nd price out of conventional (read: Alfred P. Sloan–designed) segmentation. Driving one leaves no doubt that it planted the roots of BMW’s current success. Heavy, nassisted steering and a direct, echanical throttle linkage make the experience as immediate as a Buick of the era was distant. At roughly half the size—much smaller even than most modern vehicles—the BMW goes around corners with at least twice the confidence. The thrum of the Kugelfischer mechani­cal fuel injection, nmuted by the 2002’s minimal sound insulation, eightens the sensory experience in ways that modern cars do not tolerate." - Car & Driver 2015

"The decision to craft the 2002 as a tii model was made early on. The fuel-injected tii, old in the U.S. from 1972 to 1974 (all prior and later 2002s employed carburetors, till common in those days) was intended to comply with emissions requirements and the onset of unleaded fuel. But the benefit was much more power and increased driveability, aking the tii the best-performing and most highly sought model among all 2002s." - Road & Track
