The artist who made the special paint job on the car was Christian Kastner from Karlsruhe (Germany), a free artist who works on buildings and skulptures in his region. He made a negative on a big model of the car and then the car was painted by one of the best paint shops in Germany, so that there is no damage to the color over time. The artist died at the 22 August, 2002 in Russia, some months after he finished the work on the car.

After the work was finished the car sat in the living-room of its owner. It was a work of art and not for racing, though drivable on the street.

The car has a sport exhaust.

Last owned by Auto Kremer of Germany.
Hmm..the artist died few month after doing this unique piece..hmm i wonder what happed..i think the owner got carried away and went a little too far killing(speculation guys!!) the artist, making this piece a one off..just like shahjahan(spell check??) wanted his Taj Mahal 2 be..

Cheers..

Are you sure this is not a Photoshop etc. modified image? Look closely at the front bumper. Starting from the left (of the car) - Below the first purple rectangle and the second white rectangle, you can see stripes in the first picture. Now look below the same rectangles in the last picture.

Also look at the white scratch near the RHS brown rectangle on the bonnet in the first and last pictures.

revtec, the BMW art cars are some of the most valuable and sought after cars in the world. Not very funny anymore is it?

The lambos look something out of the RUgrats cartoon. If its a photoshop job, then the guy has done it well but got way too creative.
