How the Elvis Presley BMW 507 Roadster Was Restored
The BMW 507 Roadster – previously owned by none other than Elvis Presley – was completely restored showcased at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The car was considered to be lost for quite some time and nobody expected it to resurface. That’s only half the story too, as the restoration process was due to be quite troublesome.
However, if there’s one team in the world that can get it done, you’d better bet on the guys from BMW Classic. And they pulled off an incredible project, bringing the car to its original shape just in time for this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
