BMW 507

The BMW 507 is a sports car that was delivered by BMW from 1956 to 1959. At first planned to be sent out to the United States at a rate of thousands for every year, it wound up being excessively costly, bringing about an aggregate creation figure of 252 autos and overwhelming misfortunes for BMW.

The BMW 507 was brought about by U.S. vehicles merchant Max Hoffman who, in 1954, induced the BMW administration to deliver a roadster adaptation of the BMW 501 and BMW 502 cantinas to fill the hole between the costly Mercedes-Benz 300SL and the shoddy and underpowered Triumph and MG sports autos. BMW engineer Fritz Fiedler was appointed to outline the moving undercarriage, utilizing existing segments wherever conceivable. Early body outlines by Ernst Loof were rejected by Hoffman, who observed them to be unappealing. In November 1954, at Hoffman's request, BMW contracted architect Albrecht von Goertz to outline the BMW 503 and the 507.
