BMW 507 is a two-door convertible model built by the German company between 1956 and 1959, a vehicle designed by Albrecht von Goertz, the same German who took care of the BMW 503.
As mentioned above, the German roadster entered production in 1956 and joined the already existent BMW 501 and BMW 502 models in the range. In terms of dimensions, the BMW 507 is 4,3 m long, 1,6 m wide and 1,2 m tall.
Under the bonnet, BMW provided the 3.1-liter V8 unit able to deliver 150 horsepower at 5,000 rpm. The aluminum alloy engine is fitted with a four-speed manual transmission, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h being possible in 11,1 seconds while the top speed is rated at 196 km/h.
Fritz Fiedler was the person designed to take care of the engineering, other mechanical components of the model including two Solex Zenith carburetors but also an oil pump using chain drive.
According to the existing details, BMW planned to produce the 507 roadster in mass production but at the end, the German company announced that only 252 units have been built. The main reason for this unexpected turn was that the model was quite expensive.
