BMW 3.0 CSL Art Car
The first of BMW’s series of 17 Art Cars was painted in 1975 by American artist Alexander Calder, using the BMW 3.0CSL as a canvas. Calder was primarily interested in mobiles, but he was also interested in technology and art and the BMW 3.0 CSL was one of the last works he produced before this death. The Alexander Calder Art Car raced for the first and last time at the 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans, driven by Sam Posey, Jean Guichet and Herve Poulain, and has been on exhibition ever since.
