1958 BMW 507 Roadster Series II

Born to challenge the supremacy of the Porsche Speedster and Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, the BMW 507 Series II Roadster outgrew its experimental beginnings to become one of the most awe-inspiring cars in modern motoring. If you´ve never seen one before, it might be because they only built 252 of them. Offered here is a desirable Series II variant with increased engine output and a little additional space behind the seats, offering those taller drivers a more comfortable seating position. It has been beautifully restored in striking blue with contrasting handsome red leather upholstery, making it an elegant, period-correct, and beautifully subtle alternative to the sea of white 507s more often offered. It is presented in excellent overall condition, and it has been nicely detailed, with correct steel wheels fitted and an original 507 factory hardtop. The car is as striking with the hardtop fixed as it is when opened to the breeze.

BMW K75 Adventure Touring Bike

This stunning Adventure Touring Bike was built by the Spoken Moto workshop for the Handbuilt Show in collaboration with craft luggage maker Pack Animal out of Seattle. Based on a 1990 BMW K75RT, the long-range tourer was heavily influenced by the Motorrad R Nine T Paris-Dakar concept bike. In fact, the nose and front fender are R Nine T Urban GS bits and the paint scheme is very similar to the Paris-Dakar bike. The racks, radiator shield, subframe, rear ...
