BMW Art Cars, Automuseum PROTOTYP, through March 19, 2017

If you’re into fine automobiles, then the Automuseum PROTOTYP offers you an exclusive opportunity to see nine iconic BMW Art Cars at once. These cars became canvases for famous artists like Andy Warhol (BMW M1 Gruppe 4, 1979), Frank Stella (BMW 3.0 CSL, 1976), Roy Lichtenstein (BMW 320 Gruppe 5, 1977), and Jeff Koons (BMW M3 GT2, 2010).

You’ll also get a chance to see the car that began the BMW Art Cars series, Alexander Calder’s redone 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL. It was inspired by the French racer Hervé Poulain. Calder used bright primary colours, literally wrapping the car in fields of paint to create the illusion of movement. This was also one of Calder’s last works – the car competed at Le Mans, and the artist passed away that same year.
