The 1600-2 (the "-2" meaning "2-door") made its debut at the Geneva auto show in March 1966 and was sold until 1975 with the designation being simplified to "1602" in 1971.The 1.6 L M10 engine produced 63 kW (84 hp) at 5,700 rpm and 130 N·m (96 lb·ft) at 3,500 rpm. In 1968, Road & Track declared the US$2676 1600 "a great automobile for the price".
Built around five years ago by BMW Classic at Park Lane, London, this 1602 has campaigned on a vast array of events from Le Jog to Summer Trial - it is a joy to drive and handles superbly. This car has been supremely reliable, a testament of BMW quality and the HERO Assist team who maintain this vehicle. Sensibly upgraded with a five speed gearbox and limited slip differential, the interior also benefits from upgrades with safety harnesses and roll cage along with BMW bucket seats. As with all our Arrive & Drive cars, the addition of a Brantz International 2 Trip Meter helps you compete successfully.
Our pricing is simple. Cars are priced by group and package price for HERO events. Cars are also available for corporate hire, bespoke tours, gift driving days and some also for promotional film work.
All our cars are regularly maintained by specialist mechanics. Each car is prepared to meet the requirements of regularity rallying. Arrangements can be made to view and drive the cars prior to hiring. Cars are equipped with a tripmeter and when necessary a “navigators event pack” and can be collected by the hirer, from our base in South Wales, or delivered to and collected from the event (additional charges apply).
Prior to taking control of the vehicle, our A&D team will do a full handover of the vehicle showing you all the controls and go through the vehicle with you.
Mark has worked with HERO for 5 years. He manages the Arrive & Drive fleet, providing storage of vehicles for a number of our clients, as well as being responsible for the vehicle logistics.
