"I love that car. It has turned out better than the artwork." Andy Warhol on his BMW M1 Art Car in 1979. To mark the 40th anniversary of BMW's international cultural commitment, the entire BMW Art Car Collection will be available for access online for the first time ever. According to BMW's press release, the website will include an extensive virtual overview of the origin, history and development of the collection.
In addition to the photographic material, a car-specific film has been made for every single one of the 17 "works of art on wheels." 17 different internationally acclaimed artists from nine different countries on five continents have had the honor of painting an Art Car. Bill McAndrews, head of BMW Group Corporate Strategy and Communications said: "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."
