“How many times can this woman write the word ‘actual’ in a headline?” you ask, annoyed. Well, you would actually have to assure yourself this is an actual situation, too, if you had to blog about someone buying a wall sign—a sign!—of letters and numbers alluding to “Lambo” for the price of an actual Lamborghini.
This video gets uncomfortably close to the chemical processes at work during a comprehensive re-paint of a Porsche 911. And man, it’s stranger to watch than alien eggs hatching. Even if you already know how filthy and laborious car painting is, these guys take detail-work to another level.
Most of us are at least vaguely aware of “lowriders.” They’re generally old American cars with creative paint jobs and hydraulic systems that move their bodies in all sorts of crazy ways. But you can take a much closer look at them at the Petersen Museum right now, and hot damn, these cars are unbelievable.
This Bugatti Megalodon SUV is from an artist’s imagination, not an actual Bugatti product planner, but I have to say this thing doesn’t look half bad. Even if there’s no way to get into the back seat.
Grace Roselli is a Brooklyn-based artist, photographer and motorcyclist. Her current work, The Naked Bike Project and Protective Gear Series, are results of mixing those passions.

Like many of us, Colorado architect Adam Ambro makes car doodles on newsprint he’s done reading. But his are pretty enough to frame.
“Now I’ve seen everything,” you can probably say. Behold: the NASCAR Land Rover, the unholiest and most hilarious of automotive unions I’ve ever seen dreamed up.
Tough day at work so far? Your partner on your case about those groceries you forgot? Get all your frustrations out watching this hydraulic press apply 500 tons of force to steel car wheel. Oh yeah. Crush, baby, crush!
When DUB describes Zevigg’s Huracán as “the first hand-painted Lamborghini” they mean spray-painted. And behold: the second-fastest way to destroy a quarter-million dollar supercar.
Between artistic ability and geographical knowledge, it’s safe to say there’s a reason why NASCAR drivers don’t moonlight as cartographers. Kudos to Landon Cassill for pointing out George Strait’s exes on the map, but somebody needs to tell Carl Edwards that we’re not Missouri.
The U.S. Postal Service (remember those guys?) has a big new crop of pretty stamps for 2016, including this set of four classic pickup trucks. Beautifully rendered as clean and colorful drawings, forget mailing the gas bill—these are nice enough to hang on the wall!
These were cars. Now they are art. Get it? Behold the work of abstract expressionist John Chamberlain, as seen in New York’s Dia Museum. [Image: Andrew P. Collins]
Google recently invited artists to design artwork themed around their community and neighbors to be featured on the company’s prototype self-driving cars. Kind of like the daily Google Doodle.
Photographer Freddy Fabris specializes in images of cars and people. When he stepped into one particular auto shop and inspiration hit him to take a new spin on an old theme, and it’s pretty awesome.
FC Anji has had a pretty good season. The Russian soccer team, located in the city of Makhachkala, was promoted from the Russian National Football League to the Russian Premier League, and they’re celebrating with this giant Lamborghini statue:
Jonathan Brand always wanted a motorcycle, but life got in the way. So the New York artist did the next, next, next best thing and created his own with CAD, a 3D printer, and 40 pounds of plastic.
Every present isn't a winner (sorry Aunt Edna) and your house could use some eye candy. So let's get a list together of the best automotive art while we're waiting to get a gift receipt for that phlegm-green knit vest that's two sizes too big.
105 year-old Swiss artist Hans Erni is world-renowned for his painting, graphic art, and sculpting, and also happens to be a former pilot. He created this beautiful paint work on a Pilatus PC-12 NG, to help the company celebrate it's 75th anniversary of incorporation - December 16, 1939.
