1957→1959 BMW 507 Series II
In 1957 BMW revised their flagship 507 to include more rear cabin space and changed minor details to refine the model.
To increase space behind the rear wheels, BMW removed the valence and reduced the size of the fuel tank from 120 to 65 liters.
Compression was increased to 7.8:1 which increased power from 140 to 150bhp at 5000 rpm.
