It’s much easier to appreciate art when it can do 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds.
If you're looking to stimulate your right brain - that's the artistic and creative - without giving yourself a migraine, then you're going to want to check out all of these art supercar finds; perhaps the most accessible works of art on the planet. They're colorful and eye-catching, and best of all, they don't require you to think too much. Art may be subjective, but there's no arguing about the awesomeness of a Bugatti Veyron, even one that has been given the art car treatment.
Ian Cook is a British artist who has turned a Bugatti Veyron into one of the fastest pieces of art in the world. Cook's 'BugARTi' is covered in barcodes, Twitter handles, random splashes of paint and BugARTi logos. The artistic Veyron was created for the upcoming Wilton Classic and Supercars event hosted by Lord Pembroke of Wilshire.
There's a 99.9 percent chance that this is the only McLaren F1 GTR art car in existence. This race-spec artmobile was given its makeover by the internationally known French artist César (who?). The McLaren F1 GTR art car was put up for auction where it was expected to draw somewhere between $2.5 and $3 million.
Even if there is another tattooed F430 out there, it's unlikely that it's anywhere near as outrageous as Philippe Pasqua's. What sets apart Pasqua's tattooed F430 from other tattooed cars is that the French artist first decided to cover his canvas in leather before beginning his work. Leather-covered cars are usually a no-no, but an exception could be made here.
This Sharpie Lamborghini Gallardo is one of the most amazing art supercars around. This luxury canvas was commissioned by Brett David, CEO of Lamborghini Miami, and executed by Jona Cerwinske. The entire project took two weeks to complete and helped draw international attention to David's dealership.
Jeff Koons is the artist behind this psychedelic Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black art car. This art car sports a color-popped paint job that may make you feel like you're on an acid trip. In addition to this artsy DBS, Koons has also created an art car for BMW.
