Alexander Calder "Batmobile"

American painter and sculptor Alexander Calder  created a one-of-a-kind car for BMW back in 1975. The 3.0 CSL "Batmobile" GT racer helped launch the auto brand's "Ultimate Driving Machine" campaign message and will soon be on display at Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance.

The colorful auto debuted to the public in May 1975 at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs at the Louvre. "It was an elegant creative alliance of racer and art auctioneer Herve Poulain and American sculptor Alexander Calder, mixed with the foresight of BMW Motorsport chief Jochen Neerpasch," says the Amelia Island Concours.
