Digital art innovator Laurence Gartel has had his work exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art among others and is known for creating custom pieces for the likes of Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.
His latest “masterpiece,” however is rather abominable — the world’s ugliest Ferrari. And he claims it’s worth $1 million.
“A Ferrari needs to be left well enough alone.” That may be true, but when a collector has more than 10 of them, you can begin to see the options,” states Gartel. “Artistic and cultural minds change our thought process. So I tip my hat to Enzo Ferrari for having real vision in the automotive world. It is about to evolve into a prophetic significance.”
We don’t think Gartel, whose work is in the permanent collection of Smithsonian’s Museum of American History, set out to make the luxury car unattractive. He transformed a $300,000 Ferrari F430 Scuderia into a moving canvas using every color imaginable in a nightmarish combination, apparently commissioned by “art social network,” Artfellas.
Check out a video of the emetic supercar above, but be forewarned — Ferrari lovers might cry, and the rest of you will probably need a bucket.
Of course, Gartel’s Tesla Roadster Sport “Art Car,” pictured below, could also be named “The World’s Ugliest Tesla.”
