The History of the BMW Art Cars.

Posted in BMW, Cool Stuff, Racing, Videos by MrAngry | August 22nd, 2010 | 1 Response |

Back in the 1970’s the first BMW art car was created and since then no fewer than 17 have been produced. The art cars began in the mid 1970s when Herve Poulain, an auctioneer and race car driver wanted to blend his love of art with his love of racing. He hired the best artists of that time period to create some of the most amazing, and at times, most unusual pieces of automotive art to ever roll on tarmac. The above video gives you a quick synopsis of how these events took place as well as a small showcase of some of the coolest art cars to have ever been produced.

    Very cool. I also remember Peter Max painting a car for Dale Earnhardt a few years before his death. At the time, I wondered if the whole thing was inspired by the BMW Art Cars….even if it was, I doubt that GM would ever admit to it.
