A 4-wide version of the classic BMW 2002 turbo, the first German production model with a Turbo charger (even before the Porsche 911 got one)
I hadn’t thought about building a 4-wide “02” until I saw Starscream Soundwave’s 4-wide model. I have to say I was heavily inspired when I saw his BMW 2002 and the ideas started coming up. So please take a look at his model first (and leave a comment if you like it). That’s where I started with this model.
Left side view: I thought that the classic LEGO Town mudguards would look cool on this model so I added those. Then I changed the lower part of the side panels from wedges to arches. I think they look smoother this way. I’ve added some spoked rims for the classic sporty look.
Rear right view: No big changes here. I mainly changed the license plate section between the tail lights (Hmm, maybe I should use trans-red tiles instead of plates for those). I also made the window section in 3-wide instead of 4-wide.
Fast and Furious, vintage German style of the 70s: A 914 and a 2002 waiting for the green light :-))
I had to make the front bumper thicker to hide the lower half of the chrome grill for the BMW “kidney”. So now it’s a 2002 turbo front bumper ;-)). I also added a black roof for the “sporty look” and embedded it into the window line using the 45 deg wedges with the cutout. I remember quite a lot of customized cars with a black roof back in the 70s.
