One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Supercar

Art Car

Just don't call this one rubbish.

It makes sense that there's not loads of these cars being produced by the trio of German, especially since the first Mercedes we showed you in 2011 took around seven months to create. The '55 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR cost roughly $70,000 back then and was made up of an estimated 10,000 pieces of scrap metal in all shapes and sizes. The Mercedes and it's new stablemates don't get around too often thanks to their weight, so they're housed in a museum in Pruszkow, Poland.

At the pace of seven months for a life size art car by three skilled artists, we can now understand why the team had to grow to a massive 50 people to be able to get more cars as part of the collection before people actually forget what cars are. The collection as it stands is quite impressive, the artist collective chose some great cars to implement their unique art style. The lineup now includes a Maserati GranTourismo, a Lamborghini Aventador and of course, a Bugatti Veyron. All heavyweights (excuse that pun) in their fields. Some of the parts actually work on the cars too, well, mainly the doors. The Mercedes gullwing doors also open like the original car, quite impressive.

Cars made out of weird things aren't a new concept though, we've seen out fair share over the years, although if we had to choose a metal car, we'd prefer something a lot lighter so that we could cart it around and show it off, more along the lines of the wireframe McLaren P1 spotted in South Africa. If these cars weren't so heavy we'd expect to see them travel the globe attending festivals where all the arty folk like to congregate and show off their own artistic talent under the influence of mind-altering narcotics. Until then, this is an extra reason to stop off in Poland when traveling around Europe.
