BMW 3.0 CSL Art Car Frank Stella

The BMW Art Car Project was introduced by the French racecar driver and auctioneer Hervé Poulain, who wanted to invite an artist to create a canvas on an automobile.

Commissioned in 1979, the Frank Stella BMW M1 Procar was painted to Stella's Polar Coordinates design and created for Stella's close friend, race-car driver and champion, Peter Gregg. When Gregg and Stella were together at Daytona in 1979, Stella created the design specifically for Gregg's M1. This was the only time that a BMW-commissioned artist created a car for anyone other than the manufacturer itself.
