10 Incredible Art Cars

If you’ve ever been to or even heard of Burning Man, you’re familiar with art cars. These beasts of the road make up the cooky caravans that people take as they make their way out to the desert to party, barter, chill, and trip balls.

But Art Cars aren’t just a Burning Man thing. This is an art form that goes back to the ’60′s, when hippies would paint crazy designs all over their automobiles. John Lennon and Janis Joplin even got in on the action! She had a psychedelic Porsche while he rocked a paisley Rolls Royce. Since then, the trend has taken off and people all around the world are still busting out the paint and the Krazy Glue, so they can decorate the crap outta their cars. And the most famous art car of all? None other than the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile!

These cars may be impractical with their wings, bones, and lack of functional mirrors, but we definitely dig the style. These pictures are crazy fun to look at and if this is your kind of thing, you might want to check out Art Car Central’s blog. They’ve got tons of pics and more information about how you can attend a parade near you!

Posted: May 6, 2011 in Cars

The BMW M5 is a high performance version of the BMW 5-Series executive car built by the Motorsport division of BMW. First introduced at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1984, the first incarnation of the M5 was hand-built utilizing the 535i chassis and a modified BMW M1 engine, being the fastest production sedan in the world at the time of its introduction.[1] Subsequent iterations of the M5 have been built from each generation of the 5-Series platform, including the E34, E39 and most recently the E60/E61. The next generation of the M5 is expected in 2011 and will be based on the BMW F10.

Due to the longevity of its nameplate and undisputed position at the top of BMW’s midsize lineup, the M5 remains one of the best known sport sedans, despite competition from Mercedes-AMG and Audi quattro GmbH.
