Alexander Calder’s art work, on a BMW 3.0 CSL E9, premiered at the 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans.

An auctioneer and race car driver by the name of Herve’ Poulain had been in search of the perfect synthesis between art and the automobile. In 1975, he had an epiphany. Use the race car as a sort of rolling canvas to display painted masterworks of graphic art.

He commissioned his friend and artist, Alexander Calder, to paint a BMW 3.0 CSL E9, which Poulain would premier at the 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. Calder attended the race to watch the premier of his work as it raced around the track. Now that’s an art opening!
BMW caught wind of Herve’ Poulain’s idea, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Below are a couple of links to view all of these priceless masterpieces.
