In My collection since 2016 Construction time: 04 / 1966-02 / 1971 1600-2: (Quantity 210.451)
BMW 1600, the designation was unofficially supplemented by a "-2". The BMW 1600-2 established the independent BMW-02 series (series 114) and received the designation 1602 from 1971. The BMW 1600 was the successor of the model 1500 and was built starting from 1964.
The BMW 1600-2 (factory code: 114) made its first public appearance a special occasion. On 7 March 1966, BMW AG celebrated its 50th birthday, and on that day the then CEO of BMW, Gerhard Wilcke, presented the invited guests BMW 1600-2 in the Bavarian State Opera. Three days later the second-door driver presented himself at the Geneva car showroom. The "2" (later "02") should characterize the 1600 simply as the new second-door of BMW and help to distinguish it from the larger four-door sedan. The BMW 1600-2 was 27 centimeters shorter than this (total length: 4.23 m), and the only 5 cm shorter wheelbase. To the short body overhangs of the BMW 1600-2 fitted the unchanged wide track of the front axle. The roof was 4 cm lower, which together with the flatter front windshield, the round headlights and the circular taillights of the BMW 1600-2 should emphasize the impression of dynamism and sportiness. The BMW 1600-2 was a state-of-the-art car that had a top performance of 940 kilos at 85 hp, accelerated to 100 km / h in 13 seconds and was one of the fastest cars of its time at 166 km / h. The original series 114, also referred to as the 02 series, comprised mid-class vehicles manufactured by BMW between April 1966 and July 1977. The 02 series rounded off the BMW program. It was derived from the New Class 1600 model, but the vehicles had only two doors.

There were only four-cylinder models (engine type M10) with the designations 1502, 1600-2, 1602, 1600 TI, 1802 as well as 2002, 2002 ti, 2002 tii and 2002 turbo. The first two digits, except for the 1.6 liter 1502, indicate the displacement. The development codes are Type 114 for models 1502-1802, E6 for the touring models, E10 for the 2002 including TI and tii as well as E20 for the 2002 turbo.

The series was replaced in August 1975 by the first BMW 3 Series (E21 series), with the smallest model 1502 being produced until July 1977. The 1600-2 was presented in March 1966 at the Geneva car salon. Its unofficial name tag "-2" was to characterize the 1600 as only the new second-door driver from BMW and help distinguish it from the larger four-door sedan; On the vehicle itself the model designation was only "1600".
