BMW Art Car # 14 - 1995 850 CSi by David Hockney
Transparency — that was the inspiration behind David Hockney’s sleek 850 CSI. The English painter fashioned the car so audiences could see through the car’s sheetmetal.

“The car has wonderful lines, which I followed,” Hockney said of his work. “BMW gave me a model of the car and I looked at it time and time again. Finally, I thought it would be a good idea to show the car as if one could see inside.”

Indeed, Hockney gave his 8 Series the brush-stroked X-ray treatment. He painted the car’s exterior to showcase the driver’s body, the intake manifold under the hood, and even his own pet Daschund sitting in the back seat. On the passenger’s side, viewers see a landscape in motion — as if the car and its internals simply didn’t exist.

With long, dramatic lines and potent V-8 and V-12 powerplants, BMW’s 8 Series was a vehicle that left a lasting impression on the company’s lineup. Hockney’s 8 Series was a twelve-cylinder 850 CSi model, sporting a 380-horsepower, 5.6-liter V-12 tuned by BMW’s M Division.
