This BMW stood in the shed for 43 years!


Such stories are rare, and when they do, they cause a sensation. It is no different in this case. In 1979, this BMW was parked in a garage and … it has stood there until now.

Model 507 needs no introduction. Fans of the brand know that it is the white crow not only among all models from Munich, but also cars in general. The car was created in post-war European times, and it was still a symbol of luxury and beauty. It may seem that it has no right to exist. More produced BMW 507 went abroad, and one of the owners was, for example, Elvis Presley.

The BMW 507 was produced in only 254 units and the last one was put up for auction. His story is amazing. The car was sold in Caracas, Venezuela, and the first owner was Lester Stebbins – head of the Venezuelan national racing team, and also a member of the series. Le Mans Race. When Stebbins left his country, he took the BMW with him and handed it over. In the seventies the car passed into the hands of the current owner’s father, and then – specifically in 1979, BMW took a long break.

The “507” has the original Rudge rims that left the factory, but the color was changed (original Silberblau) before the car fell into a long dream. And only after 43 years, a unique BMW was discovered and taken out of the garage. It immediately hit the ground auction by Bohnam, where it was sold for 2 315,000 dollars. Interestingly, the car was not prepared for the auction, but it went there in its original condition, and now it will have a full restoration.
