Gentleman racer, Hervé Poulain, tells the short version of how he launched the iconic BMW Art Car concept. Gotta respect anyone who says, "I have two passions- speed and beauty," even if he IS French.
Our personal favorite? It's a toss up between Alexander Calder's inaugural edition (1975) and Frank Stella's ode to engineering (1976). Although, Jenny Holzer's 1999 BMW V12 LMR is definitely a great, and often overlooked, conceptual beauty.
