A rare BMW once owned by the king of rock and roll Elvis Presley has been found and restored. The 1957 BMW 507 was fully disassembled, revamped, repainted and put back together to restore its former glory at BMW in Germany. Presley originally purchased the car while stationed in Germany with the US Army in 1958. The car was previously used for racing before Presley bought it and was a hot commodity of the time. When Presley purchased the car the paint was white, but rumor says so many fans wrote notes to the king of rock in lipstick he eventually painted it red. Once he headed back to the states in 1960, Elvis brought the car along with him. He soon traded it in to a dealer who re-sold it for $4,500. Only 254 makes of the model were created of the 507 making them incredibly rare. They sell for as much as $2.5 million today in perfect condition. Presley's model was modified with a Chevrolet V8 engine and new gearbox and rear axle. After changing owners over the years it eventually came to Jack Castor, a car collector who stored the vehicle in a 'pumpkin warehouse' in Alabama. In 2006, the car was confirmed as the same one owned by Presley and BMW purchased the car from Castor. Two years ago the car was shipped to Germany, and fully restored with a mix of new and old parts. The finished look saw the car painted in its original coat of white. Although the car is not for sale, it will make a public debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 21.

It was unveiled at Detroit’s Autorama in 1967, where it won nine awards including the highly- prestigious RIDLER AWARD. The Deora is based on the compact Dodge A100 pickup. #14 01:27 Dymaxion car In 1933, the American inventor and architect Buckminster Fuller designed a prototype car which he called the Dymaxion car, the name being derived from an acronym, DY (dynamic), MAX (Maximum) and ION (tension). #13 02:07 1947 Norman Timbs Special No other automobile looks like this, with its front-mounted cockpit and curves leading to a raindrop tail. Timbs, an Indy racing engineer, made the car with a Buick Straight 8 engine placed at the rear of the chassis. Look to racers like the 1937 Auto Union Type C for indications of Timbs’ inspiration. #12 02:51 TASCO 1948 Inspired by an aeroplane, Tasco is an American sports car with a T-top roof and a cabin that is surrounded by fiberglass. The engine of this car is not anything an engineer would readily understand, but it's got the power and that’s all that matters. #11 03:35 Messerschmitt KR200 Also called the Cabin Scooter or Kabinroller in German, the Messerschmitt KR200 is what is known as a bubble car, which is just a smaller, economy microcar usually referring to cars made during the 50 and 60s. #10 04:10 Stout Scarab Manufactured in the 1930s and early 40s by William Stout, a former executive at Ford Motors, the Stout Scarab is a product of American Automotive Engineering. #9 04:45 1953 General Motors Firebird 1 XP-21 The 1953 General Motors Firebird I XP-21 was an actual jet fighter, with four wheels, a tail fin, and a bubble cockpit. The turbine engine spun at up to 26,000 rpm to generate a whopping (for the time) 370 horsepower. #8 05:33 Citroen Centipede The Citroen Centipede Is A 10-Wheeled Tire Testing Monster In 1972, #7 06:18 Ferrari 512 S Modulo YES FERRARI. No matter how weird a car is designed, if it comes from the Italian car maker Ferrari, it sure stirs some excitement. The car has no doors and uses a canopy styled roof to make up for that provision. #6 06:59 Cadillac Cyclone  Called “The Cyclone”, this concept car produced by Cadillac in 1959 was heavily influenced by 1950’s aeronautical and aerospace design. #5 07:42 Peel p50 Also a 3 wheeled microcar is the Peel p50, which was manufactured during the years of 1962 to 1965. According to the Guinness World Records, the p50 is the smallest production car that has ever been made, and you could really tell that just by a glance. #4 08:24 Golden Submarine If any single image could highlight how much racing has changed, and yet how much it has stayed the same in nearly 100 years of motorsport, this might be it. #3 09:14 Tramontana R Like any other super-sport car, the R as its popularly known was designed not only for racing, but also for real world driving. For you to own it, you must be rich as well as lucky because only 12 of its kind are produced each year. #2 10:03 1960 Pininfarina X Created by the Italian coach-builder Pininfarina, the X was inspired by space race. The X is by far the most sought after. It’s Concept was 50 years ahead of its time. Recently at the Barrett Jackson auto auction, one sold for over $300,000. #1 10:41 Splinter The world’s only wooden super car is aptly named Splinter. It probably smells like Lemon Pledge. It was created by Joe Harmon and it is built using only the best composite construction supplies. It is inspired from the De Havilland Mosquito, a World War II airplane.

It seems that one topic not leaving the electric vehicle conversation is that of range anxiety.That anxious feeling that creates concern for so many about being stranded on a highway without proximity to a plug continues to be a genuine concern for electric vehicle buyers and sellers.So, while improving electric vehicle range is one solution, another is ensuring that a variety of charging options are available.For BMW, this means borrowing a page from the smartphone industry.With wireless charging platforms becoming more common and affordable for phones, the same option is now taking shape for cars.The German automaker is hoping to have its inductive charging system available this summer.It will reportedly work with most of BMW’s plug-in hybrids, including the 5-series 530e iPerformance.The charging station will consist of a base pad with an integrated primary coil that can be installed in a garage or outdoor parking area.A secondary coil is connected underneath the vehicle.An alternating magnetic field is generated and coupled by the two coils, through which electricity is transmitted at a rate of up to 3.2kW, and fully charges a vehicle in about 3-1/2 hours.When the driver parks over the wireless pad, blue lines on the car’s display guide the driver to the precise position for charging to begin.Green circles appear when the vehicle is properly aligned, and charging begins as soon as the driver turns off the ignition.An app keeps the driver informed of progress and alerts them of any disturbances, like a pesky squirrel or rabbit hanging out on the pad.The electromagnetic radiation produced by the charger is reportedly less than that of a kitchen hotplate.
