The former King Constantine, who passed away at the age of 83 on Tuesday, was a fan of sports cars. One of the most special and rare cars that he owned was a BMW 507 - with registration number 36.
His 507 Roadster is a 1959 model and was acquired new by the then heir.
According to News Auto, it even had a Nardo steering wheel and a Becker Mexico radio with an automatic antenna.
In 1989, the former roadster, which was in poor condition like the other cars of the former royal family now being restored, found a new owner. The new owner entrusted its restoration to the Brummer company based in Munich which specialises in BMW 507s and V8s.
The cost of the restoration reached 300,000 euros. Since then it has changed hands several times in auctions.
Apart from the now-deceased ex-King Constantinos' BMW 507 – a total of 252 were built, of which 213 were version II like his. They were also owned by Elvis Presley, Fred Astaire, Alain Delon, Ursula Andress, John Surtees, Hans Stuck, Rene of Monaco and Aga Khan.
