A Tesla Model X with over 400,000 miles, being one of the highest mileage electric cars in the world, has been turned into a piece of art by famed artist Kenny Scharf.
It’s for a fun project as a Tesla Model X with over 400,000 miles was bought on the odometer last year.
It was heard that Tesloop was selling its fleet of Tesla vehicles, and was the perfect opportunity.
The Model X was left with Chris Paine, the movie director behind Who Killed the Electric Car? and Revenge of the Electric Car, which was very influential projects in the EV community.
At this point, Chris has driven the Model X more than I did over the first year since I bought it.
Normally, it isn’t acceptable that someone spray-painted someone else’s car, but Chris has some very talented vandals in his neighborhood.
Painter Kenny Scharf is the culprit in this case:
Kenny is known for his paintings, murals, and sculptures, but he spontaneously started using cars as a medium to create what he calls “karbombz”:
The Model X is now the 300th “karbombz” done by Kenny.
Chris actually filmed Kenny painting the Model X as part of an upcoming third installment of his series of documentaries on electric vehicles.
A decade after the release of Revenge of the Electric Car (2011) and Who Killed the Electric Car (2006), Chris and his team are back at it for a third installment: Rise of the Electric Car aka Who Killed the Gasoline Car? (2022?).
