Sale Price: $5,012,432
Auction: Bonhams, Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018
Bought for the late John Surtees CBE — multiple World Champion motorcycle rider and racing driver — by Count Domenico Agusta, this BMW 407 was a gift to Surtees in appreciation of winning the Motorcycle World Championship in 1956. This BMW 507 is one of only 252 ever built and was offered for sale by the family of John Surtees CBE, who owned the car since new. After taking delivery of the car, BMW modified the engine to improve performance, added underbelly aerodynamic improvements for increased top speed and added Dunlop four-wheel disc brakes as part of its disc brake development program.
