Over four decades BMW’s art cars have built up an impressive reputation. During these years they have used significant artists to paint some of the company’s most important and well-known race cars, and convert them in the process into colourful sculptures.
The featured artists include: Alexander Calder, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, A.R. Penck, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer and Olafur Eliasson.
Bill McAndrews, head of BMW Group Corporate Strategy and Communications said the following: “After four decades and a total of 17 BMW Art Cars, they can now all be admired by everyone. The interactive website pays homage to the collection, unique in the history of the automobile and the arts. Whilst the originals are often exhibited individually at the BMW Museum in Munich or at significant cultural institutions throughout the world, people are now able to discover for the BMW Art Cars in their entirety. A comprehensive online tour is now available anywhere and anytime”.
