Sold for $1,815,000 at 2014 Gooding & Company - Amelia Island Sale.
Sold for $2,191,251 (€1,996,250) at 2020 RM Sothebys : Paris.
Production of the BMW 507 commenced in November of 1956 and continued through May of 1959 after just 252 examples were built. This particular example was built towards the close of the 507's four-year production run. This is a Series II model, of which 214 examples were built.

The Series II cars had a revised dashboard layout, more streamlined stowage for the convertible top and a relocated fuel tank that increased interior space, allowing the seats to be moved rearward.

This car, 70134, was constructed in late 1957 and is believed to have been sold new to the United States through Hoffman Motors of New York. It is believed that just 34 examples of the BMW's 507 were officially exported new to the US through Hoffman Motors and FADEX Commercial Corporation.

It is believed that this car was sold new in Los Angeles. The earliest documented history dates are from the 1970s, when it was owned by an architect living in Jackson, Mississippi. In the early 1980s, Barry McMillan of Pennsylvania acquired the car and then passed it to a Philadelphia-area collector before being sold to the Oldtimer Garage in Bern, Switzerland.

In 1985, it was advertised for sale in Road & Track, and caught the attention of a Colorado-based BMW enthusiast. The car was shipped from Switzerland to its new home in Colorado.

The car is believed to have never been given a complete restoration and remains original throughout. All wheels are stamped with the appropriate September 1957 date codes. It has the original matching-numbers engine, and the body numbers (1133 or 233) is stamped on the hood and other body panels. It has the original blue and white leather upholstery.

The car has its original German-language shop manual, a tool kit, and an extensive history file that includes service records, articles, correspondence, and an autographed business card from Albrecht Goertz.
