Global Debut: BMW Unveils New Art Car for Le Mans

The 20th edition of BMW's Art Car for the 24-hour race is yet another masterpiece…

Art Cars are a longstanding tradition at BMW. For nearly half a century, the Munich-based company has been commissioning renowned artists to transform select racing cars into iconic pieces of art. This year, the globally acclaimed artist from New York, Julie Mehretu, was given the opportunity to reimagine the #20 BMW M Hybrid V8, set to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours (FRA) on the 15th and 16th of June, turning it into a "performative painting" based on one of her artworks.

Drawing inspiration from her grandiose painting titled "Everywhen," she transformed the two-dimensional image concept into a three-dimensional form designed to encapsulate dynamism and motion. The abstract visual configuration of the Art Car was realized by superimposing digitally altered photographs with dot screens, neon-hued veils, and distinctive black markings. This intricately fashioned Art Car is intended to be more than just a piece of art; it's meant to symbolize the convergence of technology, design, and the world of racing.

"BMW's Art Cars are a crucial element of our international cultural commitment. For almost half a century, we've been collaborating with artists who share our fascination with mobility, design, technology, and motorsports. Julie Mehretu's artwork on a racing car marks a profoundly impactful addition to our collection of BMW Art Cars."

Following its unveiling in Paris, this remarkable automobile will be showcased alongside the esteemed BMW Art Cars collection, featuring works from Alexander Calder (1975), Frank Stella (1976), Roy Lichtenstein (1977), Andy Warhol (1979), Jenny Holzer (1999), and Jeff Koons (2010) by Lake Como. Subsequently, the car will head to the 24 Hours of Le Mans where BMW factory drivers Sheldon van der Linde (RSA), Robin Frijns (NED), and René Rast (GER) will debut the 20th BMW Art Car on June 15th at the Circuit de la Sarthe, aiming to secure the coveted overall victory.
