 Great BMW!  
I guess it's appropriate that the 507 has some styling simmilarity to a WWII Fighter plane since BMW started out as a aircraft engine manufacturer. It's nose and those speed lines comming off the wheel wells (just like on the 1969 Camaro) have a very aerodynamic and agressive look to them. This is a very beautiful sports car!
 Touring Sport  
"The 507s clean svelte lines; the slanted grille with minimal embellishments are subtly elegant and completely unique. In the hands of a genuinely skilled driver it proved to a thoroughbred design as an overall tourer rather than a pure sportscar. The tubular chassis gave the snug open roadster high torsional rigidity with an absence of scuttle shake on rippled roads. The adjustable koni telescopic dampers and contintental super rekords benefited handling and the rack-and-pinion steering system was precise albeit twicthy by todays standards. In terms of quiet running and refinement this compact bmw unit was superior to the engine which powered the contemporary mercedes 300sl though the 507 has never been noted for exceptional performance especially with its output of 150bhp as compared to 215bhp for the 300sl. The engine bay was neatly packaged and finely crafted. The 507s proportions were beautifully balanced, only 253 were made and each is a rare collectors item. Jonp. """
