The 7 most iconic BMW cars of all time

5. BMW 507 Roadster 

Launched: 1955

Claim to fame: The legendary BMW 507 Roadster needs no introduction. Many consider it as one of the most beautiful cars to be produced in Germany. The 507 made its debut at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York in the summer of 1955 and production began in November 1956. Produced from 1956 to 1959, it was conceived with the intention to be exported to the United States in thousands, but ended up turning into a financial disaster that almost took down the company with itself. When launched new, it came with a hefty price tag of $11,000 making it out of reach for even the richest of the rich. As a result, only 252 cars were ever built making it one of the rarest BMW models in the history of the company. A decade after the production ceased, used 507s were worthless, and quite a few ended up at the scrap yard. However, today the BMW 507 Roadster is considered as one of the finest creations by BMW and is a highly sought after collectors car. Recently, a BMW 507 Roadster was auctioned for $2.4 million
