While attending Art Basel in Miami, web imprint Cool Hunting caught up with BMW collector Dirk de Groen for a look at one of his prized models, the 1957 BMW 507 convertible. Valued at $1.7 million USD, the rare 507 was initially built to compete with the Mercedes-Benz 300SL, however its expansive productions costs forced the German carmaker to drop its plan to build 5,000 models to what would later be a mere 252. With a top speed of 120 mph, this quaint roadster drives just as well on the raceway as it does through the suburbs.
