This video, posted on YouTube by WorldCarFans, features several BMWs from the BMW art car collection. The artists include Andy Warhol, David Hockney, and Jenny Holzer.

Artists have been painting cars for the BMW collection since the 1970s. According to BMW Drives, the concept for the BMW art cars was introduced by a French auctioneer and race car driver named Hervé Poulain. Since then, 17 cars have been added to the collection.
