It’s undeniable that BMW has some of the most beautiful automobiles in the industry, with more classics under its belt than Frank Sinatra. One of their most precious gems is the 1959 BMW 507 Roadster Series II, which only had a limited run of 217.

It’s powered by a 145 bhp V8 engine with dual carburetors and a four-speed manual transmission. It also has an independent front suspension, and hydraulic front disc and rear brakes. This Bimmer is the quintessential blend of elegance and sportiness, with beautifully designed chrome bumpers, twin-kidney grilles, and high performance. Next month, RM Auctions will auction off the ultra rare car — one that has an all-black exterior with a blood red interior — which is expected to sell for over $2.3 million at the Design by Disruption auction in New York.
