Car History:

Introduced in September 1963, the BMW 1800 was the second member of the New Class family. This model had an M10 engine with a 84 mm (3.3 in) bore and 80 mm (3.1 in) stroke, giving a displacement of 1,773 cc, a power output of 90 hp (67 kW) at 5,250 revolutions per minute, and a torque output of 96 lb•ft (130 N•m) at 3,000 revolutions per minute. An 1800 TI (Turismo Internazionale) model featured components developed for the 1800 by the tuning company Alpina. The upgrades included dual Solex PHH side-draft carburetors and higher-compression pistons for 110 hp (82 kW) at 5,800 revolutions per minute and 100 lb•ft (136 N•m) at 4,000 revolutions per minute.

A homologation special, the 1800 TI/SA, was introduced in 1964. The TI/SA’s engine had dual Weber DCOE-45 carburetors and a 10.5:1 compression ratio, with 130 hp (97 kW) at 6,100 revolutions per minute and 106 lb•ft (144 N•m) at 5,250 revolutions per minute. The TI/SA also had a Getrag five-speed gearbox and thicker anti-roll bars and larger-diameter brake discs than the TI,. 200 examples of the TI/SA were built.

An automatic transmission option was introduced in 1966 and in 1967 the 1800 was generally updated along with the 2000. The updates included interior changes (a modernized dashboard design and simpler door panels) as well as styling changes to the front grilles.

In 1968 the 1,773 cc engine used in the 1800 was replaced by an engine with the 89 mm (3.5 in) bore of the 2.0 L engine and the original 71 mm (2.8 in) stroke, yielding a displacement of 1,766 cc and a stroke/bore ratio of 0.798:1 instead of the previous 1800 engine’s ratio of 0.952:1.
