A MESSAGE FROM GIANCARLO PERINI, PUBLISHER.

Car designers around the world, please help us to raise this baby. Make it yours.

Yes, you can!

Through the past five years I have been running a blog dedicated to car design with an experimental approach. I was eager to establish a bridge with the design community and to gain experience on the web.

Now, time has come for a new project with broader goals, focuses and reach.

The goal is to establish a very lively «Café littéraire» where professional designers, design educators and students, car and design enthusiasts meet, show their ideas, discuss design matters and trends, contribute with their own reports and stories to the development of a modern design culture, with past experiences and inputs from different cultures.

Please subscribe to our " Newsletter" to keep up with the progress Automotive Design Club International.

And, please, invite all your friends to join us, here and now.

Work is in progress. Be part of it!

Alexander-Calder-1975-Art-Car-BMW-3.0-CLS-03Calder's 1975 Art Car on display.


The original in the legendary series of BMW Art Cars was the non-competing star of the 2014 Amelia Concours d‘Elegance. For over 40 years, the BMW Art Car Collection has captured the imagination of art and design enthusiasts as well as lovers of cars and technology with its unique combination of fine art and innovative automobile technology.
The collection first started when French race car driver and art aficionado Hervé Poulain, together with Jochen Neerpasch, then-director of BMW Motorsport, asked his artist friend Alexander Calder to paint an automobile for BMW Motorsport.
The outcome was a work of art celebrating the BMW 3.0 CSL which competed in the 1975 24 Hours of Le Mans, driven by Poulain and American Sam Posey.
That was the time when a racing driver would combine the strong emotions of car racing and art creations.
