Italian born painter Sandro Chia was contracted to paint a touring racing car prototype from the BMW 3 series. The silhouettes and portraits on the paintwork challenge the observer to consider looking at himself in the mirror. Chia explains that, as such, a car is exposed to the stares of observers. "I decorated the surface of this car to represent these stares." Mobility is certainly of great importance to this artist as he often commutes between his homes in New York, London and Tuscany.
