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.
Enigmatic entrepreneur Elon Musk has no shortage of hobbies: sometimes, he makes cars. Other times, he likes to do a space thing or play Martian overlord. But now, the 45-year-old billionaire is turning his attention to the arts, as evidenced by a series of cryptic drawings he created using Tesla’s new sketchpad…
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. Roselli’s purpose is to explore how women riders fit into, and are perceived by, society with and without their “protective gear.”
While at first glance these appear to be famous promotional images for classic racing games, they’re actually just a bunch of very well-staged Forza Horizon 3 screenshots.
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.
The iconic vehicles of film and TV—your Ecto-1s, your Deloreans, your Batmobiles and what have you—are already pretty cool. Kit them out for the Mad Max post-apocalypse though? Infinitely cooler.
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.
Suburban dirtballs of the 1980s are a lost culture, worthy of academic study, that disappeared abruptly, leaving mysterious artifacts for future generations to work over. Think of them as, say, the ancient Mayans, only with mullets.
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]
One of our favorite artists, Scott Park, illustrated the spaceships and vehicles in the original Star Wars trilogy to scale and it’s just so good. You get to see how a Stomtrooper compares in size to a Tauntaun to an X-34 Landspeeder to a TIE Fighter to the Millennium Falcon to the Death Star and everything else in…
Art can be judged on an almost infinite number of criteria from technical skill, monetary value, importance in an artist’s body of work, etc. The best criteria, we feel, is judging art based on how it makes you feel. When viewed in that context, the art created by Ornamental Conifer (aka Nicolai Sclater) is awesome.…
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.
