1955-1959 BMW 507 specifications

1955-1959 BMW 507 specifications Classic and Performance Car

When it was launched alongside the 503 Coupe in 1956, the 507 was possibly the most beautiful convertible in the world. Whereas its hard-topped sister was slightly awkward to look at from some angles, the 507 came close to perfection. The aluminium-bodied roadster was built on a shortened 502 chassis and powered by the same V8 engine, which produced 150bhp and gave the 507 a fair turn of speed. Despite its beauty, high price and lack of an established image hampered sales – a mere 252 were made, at a significant loss.
