BMW and Paris Photo celebrate the tenth anniversary of their partnership in Los Angeles. The company will present the M1 BMW Art Car by Andy Warhol, created by the Pop artist. 1979 Andy Warhol designed the 4th Art Car for BMW Art Car Project.

If a car is really fast, all contours and colors will become blurred".
