Description

There are a few automotive beauties as seductive as BMW 507 is. This car thrilled the rich and famous from all over the world, including Elvis Presley, the kings of Morocco and Greece, Ursula Anders and last but not least John Surtees who got his 507 by Count Agusta for winning the `56 Motorcycle Championship on a MV Agusta. This BMW 507 art is clearly showing why they fall in love with the roadster built in Munich.

BMW 507 was intended as a luxury car aimed to fill the gap between the expensive Mercedes-Benz 300 SL and more affordable and underpowered sports cars like Triumph and MGs. The project was influenced by Max Hoffman, the notorious importer of high-end European cars in the USA. The man behind Mercedes-Benz SL, Porsche 356 Speedster and Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider also suggested the development of BMW 507. Unfortunately, significant construction costs doubled the target price to more than $10 000. Despite attracting celebrity buyers and being a genuine V8 sports car, BMW 507 could not get even close to the success of 300 SL. With just 252 cars built, 507 almost led BMW to the edge of bankruptcy. Its production run was extremely short with just 3 years span that ended in 1959.

This BMW 507 art is a brilliant display of Teutonic beauty

More than a half century later, BMW 507 remains a milestone model for its attractive styling. It is among the best looking BMW cars ever and because of its rarity, right now is pretty expensive classic car with perfect condition examples changing owners for amounts like $3 000 000. Recently, BMW made it to the news headlines by finding, buying and restoring the example that once was driven by Elvis Presley. He repainted his white 507 in red color as a protective measure against fans drawing with lipstick on his car. BMW Classic restored the Elvis` car to its initial color and specifications and now proudly display it on special events. We`d do the same, definitely.
