The 1972 BMW 2002 Race Car Can Be All Yours

Bringing the past into the present with stunning precision is Simon Diffey. The race car driver got his hands on the restored rolling shell of a 1972 BMW 2002, and then had it spruced it up accordingly. Aiming for ‘all steel, all glass’ specifications, Diffey wanted a 1970s style privateer race car for him and his son to play with, and play with it they did. Now the gorgeous car can be all yours for about $59,100 USD.
