The BMW Art Car Collection

Since 1975, the BMW Art Car Collection has spawned 16 works by prominent artists - including David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Roy Litchenstein, Frank Stella, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol (full coverage)...

Can't even Birdman out-stunt Bavarian Motor Works when it comes to these cars:

Alexander Calder laying the foundations

Warhol's M1, just before it hit Le Mans for 24 hrs in 1979

Michael Jagamara Nelson digs Papunya art

South African painter Esther Mahlangu's tribal stylings

Why you gotta get all conceptual, Jenny Holzer???

More on my personal fave, the Warhol whip (entendres galore, I am aware):

Clip | Brush up on your German

Clip | And your French, too
