A one-off BMW 2002 that was born back in 1974 has received a new lease of life thanks to careful restoration and the “Clarion Builds” program and now will go under the hammer.
The model is set to appear in front of aficionados during the April 8-10 auction organized by Barrett-Jackson auctions in Palm Beach, Florida, for charity. This model is indeed special thanks to the careful restoration that returned it to pristine condition and the input on the audio part from Clarion through its “Clarion Builds”. This is actually the first ever car built by the audiophiles back in 2014 –with restoration duties being handled by Coupe King in Los Angeles, a team of BMW experts who had experience with the model and such projects. Additionally, Clarion Builds also called for some mechanical upgrades that touched the drivetrain and suspension – while comfort is enhanced inside through subtle upscale improvements. Of course, the electronic updates were entirely the work of Clarion.
For starters the dashboard now has integrated a cloud-connected radio with touchscreen, Bluetooth, and navigation – and the company also took care of the sound by implementing a flagship Clarion system. The restomod BMW 2002 has been touring promotional events and car shows all of last year and even got the “Petersen Perfection” trophy from The Petersen Museum. All proceeds of the auction will be donated to the TGEN Foundation to support cancer research.
