A true beacon in the automotive world, this Chamonix White 1975 BMW 2002 Turbo played a pivotal role in the motoring revolution. There are only 10 of these legendary vehicles still roaming the roads in the U.K. and now one of them can be yours — if your pockets are deep enough.

Utilizing the KKK turbocharger, BMW bumped the 130 bhp up to 170 bhp, making it a notably powerful coupe back in its day. It reaches a top speed of 131 mph and shoots from 0 to 62 mph in 6.9 seconds with a maximum torque of 173 lb-ft. At the time of its launch, it was second only to the 210 bhp Porsche Carrera. The 2002 Turbo has Motorsport-colored stripes, a boot spoiler for speed stability, and a sizable air dam. With only 1,672 ever built, this is a rare surviving example of a classic ride. The car received a major restoration in 1991 and has been resting in a Carcoon storage system for nearly two decades with 58,000 miles on the odometer. For BMW aficionados out there, the 2002 is one of the best the German automotive company has ever produced.

Purchase: $145,000
