Usually art cars are a type of vehicle made every now and then by famous artists to experiment with new solutions, but the British artist Andy Saunders builds them by profession.

Saunders has assembled many unusual cars over the years, but perhaps the most particular is this Citroen 2CV, built in 1983 and inspired by the painting "Retrato de Dora Maar" by Pablo Picasso.

Based on a model equipped with the 30hp, 600cc engine with a four-speed manual gearbox, this art car is fully functional and can reach a maximum speed of 104kph (65mph).

The car is recognisable by its multicoloured livery and asymmetrical bodywork components, just like the style of Spain's most famous artist.

I always considered Picasso a little too particular for my tastes, while acknowledging his greatness, but what do you think of this automotive tribute?

  • 60hp 600cc engine! Was it engine swapped?

    I'm pretty sure the 600cc only had about 30bhp, possibly less than that.

  • It somehow captures the essence of both Citroën and Picasso. Plus the metal work is friggin’ great. This thing is so cool that you’ll need a sweater.
