bmw art car collection 3

Featuring a series of BMW racing sportscars worked by some of the world’s foremost artists, the BMW Art Car Collection showcases a bond between art, cultural trends and motorsport. First introduced by French auctioneer and ardent racing driver Hervé Poulain in 1975, each car of the collection has its own special story to tell. Having already exhibited in the world’s greatest museums including the Louvre and the Guggenheim, this fascinating visual experience will be in New York for the two weeks starting today. Now this is truly the difference between art on cars and the art of cars. [BMW Drives and NY Times]
