LeesTip: BMW 2002 – The Car that Started It all

‘There’s nothing worse than wild inaccuracies, and there’s no question that BMW fanatics are shaking their heads’, aldus Mike Burroughs. En gelijk heeft hij. Want niettegenstaande de straten meer en meer gekleurd worden door Blauwe Propellors, zijn het slechts enkelingen die de roots van hun daily DRIVR volledig kennen. Klaar om iets bij te leren? Right this way!

Leren is leuk. De korte paragrafen vatten perfect de essentie samen, de foto’s voegen beeld bij het woord en de bal gaat aan het rollen met:

However, the 1500 is hardly the car the world remembers as a truly classic BMW. Instead, the 1500 was over-shadowed by its smaller, more nimble, and cheaper counterpart: The ’02. […] Once the two had discovered that they had both made the same changes to their personal cars, they joined forces and met with BMW’s board to propose a 2-liter version of the 1602 – a “2002.

Waarna uiteindelijk ook de titel zijn betekenis vindt:

But the 2002 did more than just inspire the 3-series lineage and generations of cars to come: the 2002 has inspired generations of people. From those who were there to see the car in its first few moments, to those who are just now seeing one for the first time, it’s hard to deny that there’s something enamoring about the quaintly cute coupe.
