BMW 507 (1956-59)

Only 252 were built. BMW lost money on each 507 built. Originally it was intended to sell the 507 in US for $5,000. The final price tag went up to $10,500. It almost drove BMW to bankruptcy. The body was almost entirely hand-formed of aluminum, and no two models were exactly the same. Many cars were sold with an optional hand-fabricated removable hardtop. Because of the car-to-car differences, each hardtop fits only the car for which it was made. Powered by a aluminum alloy BMW OHV V8. 0–100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time of 11.1 seconds and has a top speed of 122 mph. (wikipedia)
