Four-wheeled works of art

Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, David Hockney and Jeff Koons are just a few of the amazing artists who have designed their very own BMW art car.

Here at EDGAR, art and motoring are two of our favourite things, so you can imagine how impressed we were when we saw this collection of BMW art cars from down the years.

 

The collection started in 1975 when French driver Hervé Poulain, together with Jochen Neerpasch, then BMW motorsport director, asked his artist friend Alexander Calder to jazz up his BMW 3.0 CSL.

 

What followed was a long line of beautiful artworks by some of the world's most renown artists, including Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, David Hockney and finally, in 2010, Jeff Koons, who reworked the BMW M3 GT2 in his unmistakable style.
