This BMW i3 Spaghetti Car Is Not A BMW Art Car

This BMW i3 Spaghetti Car will cease to exist in its current form when it is no longer needed

BMW has been very successful with their art cars. The automaker insists that the BMW i3 pictured here is not one of them.   Dubbed the Spaghetti Car, it is a joint effort between photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari and artist Maurizio Cattelan.  It is called the BMW i3 Spaghetti Car.

The one-off vehicle is covered in a wrap with a spaghetti pattern that harks back to an album cover in the early 90s from Gun’s and Roses. The vehicle was created for the Rencontres d’Aries Festival of Photography in Arles France. Because of the unusual treatment, it can be easily confused for one of BMW’s art cars.

While art cars continue in existence in some form, this i3 is set to be destroyed once the festival is over. In this case, the wrap will be removed from the vehicle and destroyed.

Speaking of BMW art cars, Jeff Koons created one in 2010 and American sculptor John Baldassari and Chinese artist Cao Fei are working on transforming the M6 GT3 into some type of ‘rolling sculpture’.
