In 1982 Austrian painter Ernst Fuchs created the fifth Bmw Art Car, a 635 CSi. He took his inspiration from a dream he had when he was young.

“It represents a hare racing across a motorway at night and leaping over a burning car the – primeval fear and bold dream of surmounting a dimension in which we live.

” It tells me its colors, I read them in its lines and shape, I hear its speedy call and can already see the handsome hare leaping through flames of love, driving away fears.” (source: BmwWorld.com)
