There is nothing more magnificent than this perfect collaboration between precision racing and 20th century art. Alexander Calder has been one of my favorite artists and greatest influences since finding a book of his work and sketches on a family friends coffee table as a child. The lively shapes and colors bring to life the metal exoskeleton that is the embodiment of the BMW 3.0 CLS. In motion it could be mistaken for tropical fish gliding past. The Calder’s signature(“ca”) on the rear drivers side quarter panel is a beautiful touch, it really completes the canvas in my opinion.
