The "New Horizon" project is a piece of art with a message. Both the car and its design shall entice to think about change and challenges, i.e., about new horizons. 

The famous BMW E3 model used for this art work was a milestone for BMW 50 years ago and constitutes a symbol of challenge and successful change. The E3 - full of then innovative and groundbreaking technology - was introduced in 1968 which was a time of change in Europe and America: it was when humans first circled the moon they eventually set foot on, heralding a new age and expanding our horizon. Selected in an international art context, the artist Heiner Meyer's design of the car reflects the E3's visionary role 50 years ago and places it in its original context.

Beside a perfectionist restoration of the car - which is fully functional - applying the highest attention to all and any detail, the paint coat was executed by the legendary German aerosol artist and car-races, Walter Maurer, who also painted many of the well known BMW Art Car series. Through this work, Walter Maurer collaborates with famous artists Alexander Calder, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and just recently with contemporary Chinese artist, Cao Fei. In unique contrast to these cars, the design of the "New Horizon" passes the official BMW Art Car paradigm of using race cars, by using legendary historical cars as a canvas for its visionary message of change.

The project "New Horizon" has been conceived and designed by Christian Zschocke.
