Brazilian photographer Gabriel Wickbold turned the hybrid BMW 745Le xDrive 7 Series into an art car. As conceived by the author, the new image of the sedan reflects the “dynamics even in a stationary state.” In his photographs, the photographer focuses on the bodies, faces of people and their emotions, dousing the models with paints, water, coconut wine, chocolate and milk. Gabriel used a similar technique when creating an art car: the car body is streaked with bright “luminous” stripes resembling placers of fireworks.
The hybrid BMW 745Le, which served as a model for the artist, is equipped with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, a 113-horsepower electric motor, a 12 kW⋅h battery pack and an eight-speed automatic. The total power of the power plant – 394 hp Cruising range on electric traction – 58 km. From zero to 100 km / h, the hybrid accelerates in 5.1 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically limited at around 250 km / h.
