BMW 507: The Legend
|At the start of the 1950s, BMW decides to build a sports car?particularly with a view to the American market. Goertz sends sketches to Munich, with the aim of "showing what a sports car for the US market should really look like". The designs go down well, an agreement is quickly reached and contracts are signed in November 1954.|
A book dedicated solely to a single model?the legendary BMW 507 roadster. This impressive sports car still ranks among one of the most beautiful automobiles of all time with its then state-of-the-art V8 engine and elongated engine bonnet. The author Dr. Karlheinz Lange has succeeded in creating a highly authentic book with some 240 pages that cast a new light on this famous sports car.
