BMW Art Car gallery

As part of the London 2012 Olympic celebrations, BMW has rolled out its collection of Art cars.

BMW is an official sponsor of the London 2012 Olympic Games, and as part of the celebrations, the company has brought a selection of its Art Cars to the capital, and spread them out over six floors of the NCP Car Park on Great Eastern Street.

Since Hervé Poulain first raced a BMW Art Car at the 1975 Le Mans 24 Hours, BMW has commissioned over 17 different Art Cars, with some big names - including Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol - involved in this unusual form of art.
