BMW tours the art car collection on the internet
BMW is celebrating 40 years of its international cultural commitment by bringing its art cars all together.
That place is a comprehensive website dedicated to the 17 BMW Art Cars that have been created by some fantastically famous and talented artists, and it is a fantastic tribute to the unique creations.
Each of the one-off vehicles gets its own video and technical description to give a great insight into the story behind them.
"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," said Bill McAndrews, head of BMW corporate strategy and communications.
"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."
The collection includes the M3 GT2 designed by Jeff Koons that raced in the 2010 Le Mans 24 hour, the first, Alexander Calder 3.0 CSL that was driven by racing car driver Hervé Poulain in 1975, and the most famous of all – the Andy Warhol M1 that competed in the 1977 Le Mans race.
