Art meets technology: The BMW Museum is the home of the BMW Art Car collection, to which important artists from around the world have contributed since 1975. The collection contains 19 cars, of which at least one is always on display in Munich. Nine of these cars have been used for racing and have not only fascinated fans with their design, but some of them also through sporting success. It all started at the initiative of racing driver and art lover, Hervé Poulain. He convinced his artist friend Alexander Calder to unite art and sport on a racing car. BMW provided the BMW 3.0 CSL as the objet d'art and paid for the mechanics and accommodation at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, in which the first Art Car competed. But BMW relinquished the sponsoring. The artist was responsible for the design of the car. In 2017 two exhibits were added to the collection: two BMW M6 GT3s became the fastest works of art in the world. Here's an overview of all of the BMW Art Cars in racing action.
