1957 BMW 501 V8
Original V8 engine with 2,580 cm³ and 95 hp.
Black colour with red leather interior.
The BMW 501 was first shown to the public at Frankfurt Motor Show in 1951. It was a luxury saloon car and BMW's first post-war model, but still powered by the company's pre-war 6-cylinder engine. Three years later the BMW 502 was the first German post-war car that was powered by an all-new V8 engine, years before Mercedes started to produce a V8.
The BMW 501/502 were soon nicknamed "Baroque Angels" by German public for their flamboyant styling. Usually the 501 is associated as the 6-cylinder version and the 502 as the V8-version. But there was also a 501 V8 that used the slightly detuned 2.6-liter V8 of the 502 with 95hp instead of 100hp. This 501 V8 was introduced in 1955, one year after the 502, and stayed in production until 1958. The V8-versions had more than enough power and with a top speed of 160 km/h the BMW V8 was Germany's fastest saloon car.
This BMW 501 V8 got a full body-off restoration 3 years ago with very little use since. According to the owner it is in show condition and ready to compete in this year's classic car show. The car is original with matching original engine and had only two owners from new. It is LHD. This is a fantastic chance to buy a rare, beautiful and powerful vintage car in great condition that will turn heads wherever it shows up.
The sales price is 2,880,000 baht.
