BMW 'Art Cars' in London

Here's another selection of shots of BMW's famous 'Art Cars' during their recent exhibition in Shoreditch, London

We've already brought you some images of BMW's Art Car collection that was shown in Shoreditch, London - but here's a stunning new collection of shots that have been taken by Nicholas Froome.

BMW commissioned the first 'Art Car' in 1975, when Alexander Calder was commissioned to design a livery for the BMW 3-litre CSL that was racing in Le Mans. The idea proved to be such a hit that it's continued ever since, with artists including Andy Warhol to David Hockney using various of BMW's road and race cars as their canvases.
