The story of the BMW 507

The BMW 507 is one of the legendary vehicles in automotive history. It was designed by Albrecht Graf von Goertz and produced from 1956 to 1959. The roadster is considered one of the most beautiful and elegant cars of its time. The BMW 507 was a response to American roadsters and laid the foundation for BMW's current image as a manufacturer of luxury sports cars. The technology of this vehicle is also remarkable: under the hood is a 3.2-liter V8 engine producing around 150 horsepower, coupled with a manual 4-speed gearbox. With a top speed of about 220 km/h (137 mph), the BMW 507 was one of the fastest and most prestigious roadsters of its time.
