1956 BMW 507

The BMW 507 was a roadster made from 1956 to 1959. It is thought by many to be one of the most beautiful automobiles ever produced. Intended to revive BMW's sporting image, the 507 instead took BMW to the edge of bankruptcy -- the company's losses for 1959 were DM 15 million. The company lost money on each 507 built, and production was terminated early in 1959. Only 252 were built, plus two prototypes.
