Just a year after the first Art Car, Calder’s compatriot Frank Stella followed suit. He too took on a BMW 3.0 CSL, which also took part in the Le Mans endurance race – bearing the number 21. For motorsport fan Stella, designing the second car in the BMW Art Cars series was a special honor. The design of his work of automotive art was inspired by the technical basis of the object itself. The result was a grid of lines that looked like oversized graph paper. Everything was black and white, which meant that this race car, with its enormous 750 hp of engine power, stood out from its many competitors in the starting field, especially the more colorful ones. As with Calder’s car, the BMW artwork was actually realized by BMW’s legendary paint master, Walter Maurer.
