This classic Bavarian specimen is the 2000C, which represented the top of BMW’s so-called ‘New Class’ range.
Despite having a styling that’s certainly divisive, the 2000C’s shape stays elegant thanks to these thin A- and C-pillars, combined with the absence of the middle B-pillar.
“It’s kind of a hybrid between the 02 and the newer coupes,” says Emin Kureghian, owner of this specific 1969 2000C Automatic. “It’s got lines from both—if you take a good look, you can see both sides of the story.”
He got the car from a charity auction, with the previous owner having it stored for the last 20 years. It’s certainly not a garage queen but it looks like it’s being taken care of and unlike its previous home, Emin is driving it regularly.
“I get in, slam the door shut, turn it on, step on the gas; it’s not going anywhere and I have a laugh,” he says in the latest Petrolicious film linked below.
