Historical Car for Sale: 1957 BMW 507 Series II Hardtop
The hand-built 507 is arguably the most eye-pleasing BMW to ever hit the streets and the fact that it was made in very limited numbers only adds to its desirability.
BMW built just 254 units between 1955 and 1959 and as some of you might recall, Elvis Presley drove one. You can, too, but only if you’re willing to shell out north of $1.6 million.
Car for Sale: 1988 BMW E30 M3
BMW M3 needs no introduction. The new model with the kidney grille has faced a lot of flak, but that’s because the yesteryear models had set the bar so high. One such M3 from the 1980s has arrived at the Bring-a-Trailer auctions and it looks absolutely droolworthy. This ’88 belongs to the first-gen of the M3s ever produced by BMW. This particular example comes with a four-cylinder engine, a manual gearbox, and has over 80,000 miles on the odo.
Classic Car For Sale: 1973 BMW 3.0 CS
The old Bimmers have a charm that the new ones just cannot match. An E9 from the 70s has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer and it certainly looks like one to collect. The German automaker built the E9 from 1968 to 1975. Apart from its classic, stellar looks, the car was also a performance beast back in those days. BMW even built a homologation of this series in the form of the 3.0 CSL model, which was quite successful as a racing car, especially in the European Touring Car Championship and the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft.
The car that the auction site has here is a 3.0 CS, which is the tamed version of the 3.0 CSL, but comes with equipment from the latter. Although it spent most of its years in the U.S., it is now up for sale in Canada. Interested?
Amazing Car for Sale: 1964 Aston Martin DB5
If you are a James Bond fan, you would’ve seen this car many times in the movies. In fact, it even made an appearance in Skyfall. The one that was driven by Sean Connery in the movies was in fact sold for $4.6 million in 2010. That’s the kind of fanfare this car has ever since. But, that doesn’t mean the car had no role to play.
The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 was powered by a six-cylinder engine and was in production for just two years. Off the 900 examples built in that period, one of them has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer’s auction and has bids near the half-a-million mark. Care to take part?
Cool Car for Sale: 2006 Shelby Cobra CSX1000
Continuation models aren’t a new concept. Shelby and AC introduced the CSX1000 in early 2000s and built just 14 of them. One of them is up for sale on Bring-a-Trailer! It features a blue paint with white racing stripes and an all-aluminum V-8 engine under the hood mated to a manual gearbox. This 2006 CSX1000 has 1,700 miles on the odometer and has been in the possession of just one owner so far. The car is going for close to $200,000.
Amazing Car for Sale: 2007 Saleen S7 LM
Saleen has built some high-performance cars since its inception, but the most prominent one is the S7. This mid-engined, hand-built sports car stayed in production for about a decade. The S7 was powered by an all-aluminum V-8 engine that produced 550 horses in its first run until 2005 and was then updated to make 750 ponies in the later model years.
The S7 was a high-profile car and you don’t see many on the road or up for sale very often. However, one example from 2007 has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer and it is already commanding a price of over half-a-million bucks!
Cool Car For Sale: 2018 Ford GT
The mid-engined Ford GT first debuted back in 2004 and was in production for a couple of years. Based on the credibility of the GT40, which recorded four consecutive 24 Hours of Le Mans wins from 1966 to 1969, this moniker is significant in the company’s history.
In 2015, Ford announced that the GT was being brought back after a decade-long exile. The car is selling like hotcakes and a number of special editions are already launched, but there’s no denying that the GT is still quite an exclusive car. However, one example recently arrived on Bring-a-Trailer and has caught our attention.
Amazing Car for Sale: 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC
Ferrari has numerous models from the mid-20th century that are worth dying for. One of them is the Ferrari 330 series that the automaker produced from 1963 to 1968. First came the 330 America, then the 330 GT 2+2 that replaced it within a year and 50 examples later, and finally came with 330 GTC and 330 GTS models in 1966. The body style of the 330 GTC was designed by Pininfarina and it looked more like its predecessor, the 275 GTB, than the 330 GT 2+2.
This tasteful model is one of the approximately 600 built examples, and it recently arrived at the Bring-a-Trailer auctions. The auction is live for one more week, and at the time of writing this article, it already has a bid of half-a-million dollars.
Cool Car For Sale: LS3-Powered 1970 Chevrolet K5 Blazer
The Chevrolet K5 Blazer was introduced in 1969 as a full-size SUV. The K5 was originally a short wheelbase truck, and the Blazer was based on it to take on the Ford Bronco and the Jeep CJ Series, in extension. The K5 Blazer was on the market for over 25 years before it was replaced by the Chevy Tahoe in 1995. But, the SUV still looks as timeless and handsome as it did back then.
Recently, a first-gen 1970 K5 Blazer arrived at Bring-a-Trailer. This particular example comes with a whole lot of changes, including plastic surgery and a heart transplant as part of a major refurbishment that took place four years ago. So, would it be fair to call it a modern-day K5 Blazer?
Cool Car For Sale: 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta
Although commonly known as the Daytona, this two-seater GT from Ferrari is known as the 365 GTB/4 officially. It came as a successor to the 275 GTB/4 and was introduced at the Paris Auto Show in 1968. The Daytona moniker, interestingly, was given by the media to commemorate the Prancing Horse’s top-three finish in February 1967. Anyway, a ‘Daytona’ example from the early 70s is listed on Bring-a-Trailer’s website, and it is drawing a lot of attention. This model is one of the 1,284 Berinetta coupes built for the U.S.-market between 1968 and 1973. The bid for the car is nearing half-a-million dollars already at the time of writing this article, which shows what a collectible it is. Interested?
Amazing Car for Sale: 2005 Ford GT
The Ford GT needs to introduction. This car won four consecutive Le Mans races in the late 1960s. The supercar has a long history, and all its credibility was shifted to the street-legal performance car from the automaker at the turn of the century. At the 2002 North American International Auto Show, the company unveiled the GT40 Concept and the first-gen production year cars rolled out a couple of years later.
Ford sold a little over 2,000 examples in the car’s first year on sale in 2005, and one of those examples is now up for sale at a Bring-a-Trailer auction. This 2005 GT, in the classic Red shade, has just over 1,100 clicks on the odometer, and is definitely one to collect, provided you have around a quarter-million bucks to spare. Bid away?
Car for Sale: Unbelievable, Must-See 1986 Toyota MR2
The Mazda Miata MX-5 may be the world’s finest example when it comes to lightweight and affordable sports cars, but it wasn’t the first nameplate to introduce this idea. When Mazda was rolling out the first-gen MX-5 in 1989, Toyota was already selling the MR2 for five years. The nameplate was discontinued back in 2007, but it’s still a cool car to have, especially since it features a mid-mounted engine. If you’re a fan of the MR2, this mint-condition model from 1986 might tickle your fancy.
Amazing Car for Sale: 1989 Lamborghini LM002 - The Real Lamborghini SUV
When we talk about Lamborghini’s history, the Miura, Countach, the 350 GT, and the Espada come to mind. One model, however, that barely makes it to the conversation is the LM002 – the company’s off-road truck.
This may come as a surprise for the non-Lamborghini fanboys, but yes, the Italian automaker produced an off-road truck in the past. Lamborghini made the LM002 between 1986 and 1993 and, surprisingly, only 328 examples were built. Of these, 49 were built for the U.S. market. Now, one of them has arrived at Bring-a-Trailer’s auction and we can’t stop admiring it.
