Between 1956 and 1960 BMW produced 252 507 roadsters. The car quickly became a favorite of the rich and famous, with royalty and Elvis lining up to purchase one. The history of this 1957 507 was just the opposite: After being brought to Philadelphia in the late '70s, the car sat in a garage for over 40 years, only being occasionally started. The owning family had several 507s that were driven regularly, allowing this example to live an easy life. The car retains its numbers-matching V8 engine and four-speed ZF transmission, while a repaint sometime in the '70s gave the 507 its Pontiac Bright Blue Metallica color. A hardtop is on the car, with only 11 507s leaving with one from the factory, and each one being fitted to its specific car. Whether it's a factory hardtop is unknown. The car will go to auction at Bonham's Newport, Rhode Island event September 2022.
