The Rey Rivera BMW Collection Presented is a special hand-picked car from the greatly admired Rey Rivera BMW Collection. The selected 1967 2000Ti is a unique example of the pivotal milestones in BMW’s history and is clearly representative of BMW’s rise to prominence in the 1960’s and 1970’s automotive sporting world. BMW 1967 Ti Offered is an extremely rare BMW Neue Klasse (New Class). This 1967 2000Ti, one of 1750 produced, was built on a 1800TiSA chassis, BMW’s mid 1960’s racing vehicle (only 200 produced) which was sold only to privateer racing teams. This 2000Ti car is part of the greatly admired Rey Rivera BMW Collection. Background During the 1950s, the BMW line-up consisted of luxury cars with displacements of two litres or greater, economy cars powered by motorcycle engines, and motorcycles. With their luxury cars becoming increasingly outdated and unprofitable and their motorcycles and economy cars becoming less attractive to an increasingly affluent society, BMW needed a car in the 1.5 to 2 litre class to become competitive. In 1960, the "Neue Klasse" project was begun. The team was to produce a new car with a new engine, which BMW had not done since the 303 in 1933. The prototype was introduced in September 1961 at the Frankfurt Motor Show as the BMW 1500 four-door saloon. The term New Class referred to the 1.5–2–liter class of automobiles from which BMW had been absent since World War II. The real fun started in 1964 with the 1800TI (touring international). Using a twin-carb setup and hotter cam developed by Alpina, it spun out 110 hp. And a racing-oriented 1800TI/SA with Weber side-drafts upped that to 130hp. The whole sporting future of BMWs to come started with this 1800. And what a future that turned out to be. In 1966, BMW launched the 2000 series which increased the 1800 motor displacement to 2000 (1993cc). In order to continue racing, they needed the TiSA chassis and install the 2000 liter motor so they could compete in the 2.0 liter class. The M10 motor, designed by Alex Von Flakenburg, is the motor upon which BMW staked their reputation in racing touring cars as well as production cars. This 2000 Ti is an extremely rare find for any BMW enthusiast and is a desirable and affordable collectible for a BMW collection. It is a running and driving survivor with all the bits in place that make it special. Body and engine block numbers are matching. Mechanical: Beginning with the 2.0 liter engine, the car is equipped with dual side draft Italian Weber carburetors mounted on TiSA intake manifolds along with the the 2002 Tii intake manifold airbox. The flow is increased by an Abarth exhaust system. The forward movement is enhanced by a Getrag 245 overdrive gearbox. Interior: The interior is rather special with the BMW sport black and oxblood combination. A TiSA steering wheel provides the driver with a controlled feel. An ether driven temperature gauge along with an original Blaupunkt radio sit in a dash finished with the rare elephant skin covering. Exterior: The outside amenities include a rare early trunk antennae, CIBIE fog lights and 5.5"By 14" Ti steel wheels with rare early hubcaps. This Ti is as unique as they come and can be enjoyed as is or restored to be a show winner. The rarity makes this car extremely collectible.
