Munich. BMW Motorsport has joined forces with PUMA to reveal another exclusive collection of lifestyle products inspired by the design of a legendary BMW Art Car. The new Capsule Collection celebrates the very first BMW Art Car in 1975, the work of Alexander Calder (1898 – 1976). Calder was one of the most important sculptors in the American modernism movement and wrote the first chapter in the BMW Art Car story with his creation. An artist of international renown and also recognised as the inventor of mobiles, Calder was the artistic force behind the BMW 3.0 CSL with car number 93 that lined up for the Le Mans 24-hour race. Although a technical problem prevented his car from making it to the finish line, the richly coloured racer met with an overwhelmingly positive response – and became the founder member of an automotive collection that remains unique to this day as a fusion of culture, technology and racing passion.

For the first ever BMW Art Car, Calder mimicked an approach he adopted with his sculptures and mobiles, using intense colours and gracefully sweeping surfaces – which he distributed generously over the wings, bonnet and roof. Inspired by the inimitable look of his BMW 3.0 CSL, Calder’s colour blocking style is reproduced across all the garments included in the new BMW Art Car Capsule Collection. This is the second pioneering collection presented by BMW M Motorsport and PUMA as a tribute to the legendary BMW Art Cars, BMW M Motorsport and the world-famous sports company having already teamed up to mark the 100th birthday of pop art icon Roy Lichtenstein (1923 – 1997) with an exclusive collection bringing the magic and allure of the BMW Art Cars from the road and track into the fashion world.

Each item in the strictly limited-run second edition of the BMW Art Car Capsule Collection has been carefully crafted and enthuses with expressive colour combinations that take their cues from the Calder BMW 3.0 CSL. The collection pieces together a full summer outfit made up of a shirt, shorts, two T-shirts, a baseball cap and a pair of sneakers, each of which can be ordered individually.

The BMW M MOTORSPORT AC SHIRT catches the eye with a Calder-inspired all-over print in bold colour blocking, plus the artist’s initials embroidered on the right side of the chest and an embroidered PUMA logo on the left. A woven BMW M Motorsport label on the inside and another on the left-hand side seam signal high quality and combine with the colour-coordinated strip of buttons, distinctive collar and casual fit to create a sporting appearance.

The BMW M MOTORSPORT AC SHORTS share the relaxed cut and confident colouring of the shirt and extend the look with a signature PUMA embroidered logo on the left leg and a woven BMW M label on the back pocket edging. The elasticated waistband has a drawstring for a better fit and the handy side pocket offers a secure place to carry items such as car keys. Both the BMW M MOTORSPORT AC SHIRT and the BMW M MOTORSPORT AC SHORTS are made from 75 per cent new cotton and 25 per cent recycled cotton.

The collection also includes a pair of white T-shirts, both of which are made from 30 per cent recycled and 70 per cent reclaimed cotton. They are extremely comfortable to wear and, with their oversized cut, radiate urban cool. The BMW M MOTORSPORT AC1 TEE has a colour blocking print inspired by Alexander Calder’s BMW Art Car on the front and his embroidered initials on the right-hand side of the chest. A woven BMW M Motorsport inside label and another label on the left-hand seam add the finishing touches to the T-shirt. With a large BMW Art Car print on the back, discreet logos inspired by the BMW Art Car on the chest and a BMW M Motorsport label on the inside and on the side seam, the BMW M MOTORSPORT AC2 TEE also cuts an unmistakable figure.

The BMW M MOTORSPORT AC CAP likewise picks up on the colour blocking approach inspired by Calder’s BMW Art Car. This five-panel baseball cap is also adorned by a woven BMW M Motorsport logo on the side and an embroidered PUMA logo on the peak. An adjustable, premium-quality metal clasp ensures a secure fit on any head.

The BMW M MOTORSPORT AC SNEAKER SUEDE rounds off the collection. Based on the iconic PUMA sneaker which has been delighting fans for 50 years now, the predominantly red suede shoe impresses with woven PUMA Formstrips on both sides and graphic detailing on the inside of the tongue. The PUMA logo badge on the front is complemented by a BMW metal pin on the heel.

Why culture? Why not! Culture is knowledge, a sanctuary of beauty and depth, of meaning and peace. An inspiring escape. Tranquil at best, even unsettling sometimes. As a corporate citizen, the BMW Group takes social responsibility seriously, as part of which it has been involved in hundreds of cultural initiatives worldwide for over half a century, both in the arts, music & sound, architecture, as well as in design. As a long-term partner, creative freedom is key – and as essential for groundbreaking works as it is for major innovations within a business enterprise like ours.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at www.bmw.de/wltp.

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
