It’s Alive! This is the Legendary Elvis Presley BMW!

It’s Alive! This is the Legendary Elvis Presley BMW!

Once they found it in a barn, team BMW completely rebuilt the model BMW 507 roadster, which once belonged to Elvis Presley while he served in the army in Germany.


The car has a beautiful story behind it and for the first time it will be presented at the Pebble Beach exhibition in California.

This is a very rare BMW. Only 50 of them were ever made. Elvis owned two of them!


Elvis Presley bought this particular car in 1957 as an used car because the car was displayed in a dealership in Frankfurt.


What’s interesting is that originally this BMW was white but Elvis asked to be painted red because his female fans wrote their phone numbers on the how with lipstick! He also changed the original engine with 8-cylinder Chevy engine.


The BMW team that was responsible for the restoration of this car decided to put in the original engine back which was a 3.2-liter V8 engine with automatic transmission.
