Wheeled Sculpture

Cars as an art form

The best of our car designs are art.  Are you with me on this?  How about this - people generations from now will consider these car designs the best sculpture to come out of our era.  Maybe you think an oversized bent pole somehow better represents the spirit of our age.  The sculpture of our time just happens to have functionality... and fun built in.


This 1600 x 1200 image of a Ferrari Enzo is available along with other car photos at Zercustoms.


Reminds me of a Swiss Army Knife.  This Ferrari Enzo unlatched is displayed at Cars UK and is 1600 x 1200, 72 dpi.

                                                       Ferrari Race Team

How low can you go  ...someone say road burn?  The image is 1920 x 1080 at 300 dpi.  Click the link above to access the photo.


This image of the Jaguar C-XF is a study in silver and black and you will find Super Wallpapers offers the picture at 1680 x 1050, 72 dpi.  Click on the Jaguar name for a Motor Trend write up on this concept car.


This old school image of a customized Buick Roadmaster is 1024 x 768 and can be found at Wallpapers Leovacity.



Raging Retro seen coming and going - take your pick or collect them both if you like.  It costs only memory.  The frontal view is 1280 x 1024 and is from Change Desktop while the trailing tail image is offered by Auto Wallpaper at 1280 x 960.

                                                    Hugs road, makes noise

The classic look of years ago before slippery streamlining became all science.  The image is 1920 x 1200 at 96 dpi and its on the showroom floor at fun 54.


Something like this you don't pay insurance premiums by the month - you pay by the mile.  This image of the Mazda Furai is 1600 x 1200 at 96 dpi and can be found at Fantasy and Art.  The Furai was designed with racing at Le Mans in mind.  Wikipedia has the information.


This characterization just goes to show behind those librarian glasses you've got one sexy beast under the sheets.  This hippie potion vision of the humble Fiat coupe can be viewed at 3D Wallpaper.  The 3-D rendering is 1024 x 768 at 100 dpi... looks great on the desktop.  Can someone tell me who did it?


The Sports Car Zone displays this Momentum Camaro in searing orange, black and silver.  The image is 1280 x 824.

                                                         Dodge Charger

It has the stance of a modern day Muscle Car and it's a popular cruiser with the cops.  This Charger prowls in extreme colors from Smokin' Grafix.  The image is 2080 x 1301 at Deviant Art.



Both front and rear views of the 2007 concept car Audi Locus are 1024 x 768 at 72 dpi and available at Resimlerx.  The design is by Ugur Sahin.


It's low and lean with clean, sculpted lines.  There seems nothing here so radical that it can't be street ready.  This 1920 x 1200 image is from HD Car Wallpapers.


                                                        Boccioni Sculpture

Do you see a family resemblance?  The designers of the Lamborghini Aventador have picked up Umberto Boccioni's depiction of velocity in his Futurist statue.  The Lamborghini image is 1600 x 1200 at Deviant Art.  A larger image of Boccioni's Unique Forms of Continuity in Space is half way down the page in an article titled Marinetti's Century at Dialog International.
