It took her three years to turn the BMW M6 GT3 race car into a modern canvas on wheels. This project involves mild augmented reality, requiring an iOS application to experience the multicoloured visuals on the car.
The BMW Art Car #18 was unveiled at the Minsheng Art Museum in Beijing and will be displayed at the BMW Experience Shanghai. Being a race car, it will also be driven by Augusto Farfus at the Macau street track during the FIA GT World Cup in November.
