Description

BMW presents the Type 507 at the IAA 1955. With a price of almost DM 30,000, the car was almost as expensive as a Mercedes 300 SL, which was only offered as a roadster from 1957. This meant that it was only affordable for extremely well-heeled customers, which also led to an extremely low production figure of only 252 vehicles. The design of the body came from the industrial designer Albrecht Graf Goertz. The body was made of aluminium. Today, the 507 is considered a design icon and is a highly sought-after collector’s item. This 507 was produced in July 1959 and is one of the last 5 examples built. As one of the last 507s produced, it was fitted with disc brakes on the front axle. It was delivered to Frankfurt/Main in this colour combination and still presents itself today with its original engine and gearbox, (Matching numbers and Colours!) very rare for a BMW 507. In 1998 this BMW 507 was restored by a well-known specialist. Invoices and documentation are available. In one hand for 50 years! Very well documented.
