The little 2002 holds a very special place in our hearts here at StanceWorks. As one of the important turning points that positioned BMW as a true driver’s car, we owe a lot to the old Neue Klasse, so it seemed fitting for it to grace one of our art prints. This art work has been sitting in Andrew’s archives since early 2015, but it has finally made its way to print and is now available in the Lowly Gentlemen store.
It seems like we’ve talked of taking the entire StanceWorks gang out for a track day for years. From broken cars and builds that are under construction, to conflicting schedules, empty wallets, and plain old bad planning, it’s something we weren’t sure would ever come to fruition.

It was more than a year ago that Sebastian Sieberg & Sebastian Zimmermann of SSSZ Photo shared their work on the StanceWorks homepage. The duo brought us a look at the Nurburgring Historic races through their own eyes, and with such beautiful and powerful imagery, we were excited to share. Recently, SS & SZ reached out, eager to share more with the StanceWorks audience.
