Introduced in 1956, the 507 set post-war standards in BMW styling. This was the inspiration for the Z8 and still influences BMW roadsters. Bangle still sucks though. At the heart of the 507 is a sweet-revving 3.2 litre V8, based on the 2.6 litre engine first used in the 501 saloon. Made largely of alloy, the V8 produces between 150 and 170bhp depending on the state of tune. The 507 failed due to no tooling and money for mass production after only 254 were made.

I never saw how this was so stunningly beautiful...it always looked to me like a Triumph got it on with something from the Soviet Bloc and popped this one out.

But still cool, for its heritage/rarity and the fact that you never hear morons talking about it.

I'll have some.

It definately is a beautiful car, and without doubt one of the most beautiful BMWs. For some reason, I actually prefer the Z8 which was inspired by it...don't hurt me freaked.gif
