15 Nov Rare BMW 507 From 1958 Might Sell For Over $2M At Auction
Now here’s a rare 1958 BMW 507 you most likely will never see in your lifetime hitting the auction with Sotheby’s in Paris and it has people talking. The 50’s was a spectacular decade for car design and innovation and this BMW 507 was in a league of its own, and it still stands out to this very day. This car has been a dream to own for many and it was very much loved by the late and great Elvis Presley, and now here’s your chance to own one.
The BMW 507 was designed by Count Albrecht Goertz who was also worked on the BMW 503 design, as well was responsible for one of my favorite cars the Datsun 240Z. This little convertible certainly packed a punch for its day as it featured BMW’s 3.2 liter V8 engine with Zenith dual-barrel carburetors. Thie engine produced 148 horsepower and was fitted to a four speed transmission. The BMW 507 got to 60 mph in about 10 seconds with a top speed of 136 mph.
This 1958 BMW 507 is in absolute perfect condition and is expected to reach somewhere in the ballpark of $2,200,000 USD at the upcoming RM Sotheby’s auction in Paris in February 2020. Bidders have been eyeing up this rare specimen and we wish good luck to everyone bidding at the Paris auction. For the rest of us, you can enjoy these beautiful photos of the car taken by @TimScott and watch the auction online when it happens.
