Every year many excellent models of cars get sold in car auctions. So this year also the car auctions were great. Some of the cars hit huge sales. The bid for the 1957 BMW 507 hit $1.6 million. This figure will go on increasing. This car caught many people’s eye and was the best looking of all. Many wanted to purchase it and it is incredibly valuable. This is because the BMW wanted to produce more of this model but the project became too expensive to manage.
They stopped producing the models after building 252 cars from 1956 to 1960. This makes the 1957 BMW Roadster rare and unique.

A lot of efforts put on the car to make it presentable
We all know that people at the car auctions want perfect vehicles. So to make the car suitable for a showroom condition a lot of work hard work got done. That is the reason why many possible buyers are wishful of buying the BMW.
The seller said that the black colour was original but it got refinished
The car got refinished before it got imported. So the black may not be its original colour. But the seller said that it got delivered in black from the factory. But anyways the car looks good in black. It is eye-catching and the colour pops.
It arrives with the optional hardtop
The buyers will get an additional benefit of a hardtop that is also part of the refinished look. Many parts got rechromed. The colour matched wheels of the car and the rechromed parts have given the car an attractive look. Therefore any owner who drives it can get all the attention they want.
The interior of the car got reupholstered before it got imported. The seats are 507 butterscotch-leather which gives it a vintage look. But the modern and vintage elements make it appear unique.
The wood-rimmed steering of rebuilt in 2008
The steering of the car got rebuilt in wood in 2008. It gives the car a different look altogether and matches its overall style.
The car mechanicals stood the test of time
The physical appearance of the car may not have stood the test of time because it required work however the inside mechanicals stood the test of ages. It says a lot about the BMW handiwork. That is why it is a great addition to any collector of cars.
These are the many specialities of the 1957 BMW Roadster. There is also an owner’s manual and service manual available inside the car and it will get sold along with it. The person who is getting it is fortunate indeed.
