I didn’t know I was a fan of roadsters until I saw a BMW 507 pass me the other day.

The BMW 507 is a roadster that was produced by BMW from 1956 to 1959 and nearly out the company out of business.

The 507 remains a milestone model for its attractive styling. 202 507s are known to survive, a tribute to the car’s appeal.Bernie Ecclestone’s 507 fetched GB£430,238 (US$904,000) at an auction in London in October 2007. 2009 the prices for 507s have reached €900,000. At the Amelia Island Concours in March, 2014 a 507 sold at auction for $2.4 million.

And Elvis owned one so it must be cool.
