Sir Alfred J. DiMora and acclaimed artist Lee Sun-Don creates masterpiece that could be the most expensive production Luxury Automobile in the world. A first that is true rolling art .
Palm Springs, California (PressReleasePoint) – April 14, 2014 Great artists look for innovative media to bring their creativity to life. Zen Master Lee Sun-Don has teamed with automotive designer Sir Alfred J. DiMora to produce a unique expression of their creative ideas. The first DiMora Motorcar Vicci 6.2 Emperor Convertible serves as the canvas for Master Lee’s art and will be introduced at Art Revolution Taipei, April 16-20.
This fusion of 21st century technology with classic 1930's elegance and flair defines a new niche in the American and global automobile markets. The sporty Vicci 6.2 Emperor Convertible comes with a choice of General Motors 6.2 liter V8 engines, either the 430-hp LS3 or the supercharged 556-hp LS-A engine that comes with independent suspension.
When asked why he chose to put his art on this particular automobile, Master Lee replied, "Classic and innovative, the DiMora Vicci 6.2 is by itself a work of art. What is more, this classic supercar Vicci, with its connotations of victor and conqueror, accords perfectly with the spirit of kingship and supremacy of my painting series, the Great Treasure."
Mr. DiMora agreed with Master Lee and noted, "This is the first time in history that a highly-acclaimed artist and an automobile manufacturer have come together to create true rolling art. We will work together to produce a total of 25 Vicci 6.2 Emperor automobiles, each with its unique Lee Sun-Don masterpiece in the Great Treasure series."
