Making its debut in the summer of 1955, and beginning production in November of 1956, the BMW 507 was designed as an attempt to boost BMW sales in the United States. Unfortunately, due to the climate of Germanys economy at the time, production costs pushed the price of the car up to more than double what the car was originally meant to be sold at, and as such, very few of the iconic two-door convertibles were built, only 252. Despite the cars failure to revitalize BMW- instead nearly driving it into bankruptcy, the 507 has remained an iconic centerpiece for classic car lovers the world over. Designed by Albrecht von Goertz, who also designed the 503, the 507 was based on a shortened, two-door version of the 503s frame and widely regarded to be more attractive than its bulkier brother, which has contributed to the fact that the 503 went relatively unnoticed compared to the aggressive, stylish beast that was the 507.
