BMW 2000C & 2000CS (1965-69)

The BMW New Class coupé, sold as the BMW 2000C or the BMW 2000CS, was a coupé built by Karmann for BMW from 1965 to 1969. Based on the New Class platform, the 2000C and 2000CS introduced the 2.0 L version of the M10 engine, 2.0 L OHC I4

The 2000C had a single-carburettor engine that delivered 100 horsepower (75 kW) at 5500 rpm. The 2000CS had a twin-carburettor engine delivering 120 hp (89 kW) at 5500 rpm. Both versions used a four speed manual transmission as standard, while the 2000C was available with a three speed automatic transmission as an optional extra.

The headlights were behind a glass fairing, and the grill consisted solely of a chromed BMW "double-kidney" at the centre of the front. Apart from chrome accents around the headlights and along the top of the front end, the rest of the front was painted metal, with a row of vertical slots behind the bumper to admit air for cooling and engine induction. (wikipedia)
