One of BMW’s most iconic cars is to be reincarnated when engineers and curators at the company’s heritage division, Mobile Tradition, use an original 2002 bodyshell to recreate one of the hottest cars of the 1970's.

The idea for building a ‘new’ BMW 2002 tii came after Mobile Tradition realised that it could offer around 90 per cent of all the replacement parts needed to build a car. The passion for the project was further fuelled by finding an original bodyshell in a suitable condition. Work is due to start on the project shortly and is expected to finish by the end of the year. Visitors to the BMW Museum Exhibition in Munich will be able to see the car being built at a glass fronted workshop.
