This 1999 BMW 3 Series convertible car bonnet is a unique piece of art created for Bangers and Cash, the UK’s first art roadshow banger rally from Sheffield to Monte Carlo which took place on 21st – 25th September 2018 and was driven by sponsors Hamilton Plant.


James Croft has been a children’s illustrator for 20 years and has illustrated more than 30 books to date. Since moving to Sheffield, he has been inspired by the city and surrounding countryside and used its inspirations to produce many public artworks.

James has always been interested in motor racing from his boyhood years. Images of far flung rallies and Grand Prix have stayed with him all my life. The Alps make an amazing backdrop for any rally and an ideal one for a rally inspired illustration.


Delivery/collection options: 
Collection in person or by courier on Wednesday 24th October or Friday 26th October  from  our warehouse in S9. You must organise your own delivery/collection at your own expense, and must be by arrangement only.


All our bonnets are in great condition, but some may bear minor stone chips and imperfections in the paintwork from the journey, but this highlights the authenticity of the piece and adds to the story and character of the bonnet.
