BMW 507 Featured at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

The BMW 507 Roadster made its debut in New York City in 1955. Penned by noted designer, Albrecht Graf Goertz, the 507 featured a long and sleek engine compartment, cockpit perfectly tailored to the driver and passenger and short, muscular rear end and gently sweeping curves gave the car absolutely beautiful, timeless design.

The 507 offered a new take on the traditional BMW face with the double kidney grille vertical instead of horizontal, sweeping elegantly between the headlights across the entire front end of the car.

The 507 also had a lot to offer within the engine compartment, boasting an aluminum V8 acknowledged as the first light-alloy V8 in the world built in series production. This truly exclusive car went to only about 250 proud owners between 1956 and 1959.

This model will be showcased at this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, thanks to BMW. In addition to the “production” 507 Roadsters, two custom-bodied coupes will also be shown together for the first time.
