BMW 507 stunning replica... based on an MG MGA!

Saw this amazing BMW 507 replica on the Reddit /BMW sub. It is based on a 1955-onwards MG MGA Roadster and is pretty convincing to the untrained eye. However, as I own a 1959 MGA MK1 1500, I can see that those front wings and that bonnet shape are unmistakable. Still, with the price of 507s now topping the million mark and your average MGA not commanding even a fraction of that, I can see why this piece of classic British sports-car sacrilege is acceptable! Funny though, that someone has combined one of my toys with one of my Dad's toys...

These are a bit out of date, but I think they're great and I've been after some higher resolution versions for a while. BMW UK had them designed in 2015 to mark 60 years of competing in the BTCC, Super Touring and World Touring Car series, with the posters evoking a popular art style from each decade.
