The term Art Car can be freely translated from English as “Art Car”. An art car also represents exactly that, a work of art. The cars are individually designed cars with artistic standards. The artistic claim distinguishes the cars from other “custom made cars”. Art Cars are presented in more detail below.

Artcar - what is it?

Cars that are artistically individualized are called art cars. The art cars also became known through the hippie movement in the 60s. The hippies designed their cars accordingly colorful and according to their own artistic standards. Psychedelic in particular was an issue at the time. The bus of the artist group (The Merry Pranksters) became famous and known in the context.

What distinguishes it from other works of art?

Art Cars differ from other works of art in functionality. This means that the auto function is retained and not, like other works of art, concreted in, dug in or the base somehow “taken out of service”. The individually designed cars are still ready to drive. The cars do not lose any parts due to the artistic claim, but are externally redesigned. What the car owner likes is allowed. No welding is necessary and no other car workshop has to be visited. Put simply, it is nothing else than the car with the Spray can, with the Role or with the Brush to paint. By hand! The cars can be designed by yourself or by artists. A well-known artist for art cars is, for example, Martin Höfer, a media artist from Leipzig or Thomas-Scheibitz from Berlin.

Art Car - took part in the Porsche Carrera Cup

An Art Car designed by Martin Höfer has already taken part in the Porsche Carrera Cup. The Porsche Carrera Cup belongs to the DTM and is hosted by Germany. The 911 (“GT3 Cup”) was designed by the artist as an art car. The cars are eye-catchers and should be fun and an outlet for artistic expression. Artists can also express very specific messages with such cars.

Any car can be used

No specific car model is necessary to turn a car into an art car. Basically, every car can become an art car if it represents an artistic claim. Many art cars, like those from the 60s, are colorful and immediately catch the eye of the beholder. Art cars are often designed by artists and should convey one or more messages accordingly. The artist designs a car that is ready to drive after the redesign and can take part in races, for example. But use on the road is still guaranteed. The readiness of the art car to drive means that as many people as possible can see the car while driving or during an event and experience it in action.

Art Car - conclusion: Artcars are individually designed but ready-to-drive cars. The cars can (but don't have to) designed by artists. An art car does not require any major modifications and is a real eye-catcher for the viewer even without welding work or further changes.
