In partnership with the 2024 Washington, D.C. Auto Show, the 8th Annual ART-of-Motion lifestyle experience showcased the influential auto and moto culture of the surrounding D.C. area. Produced by Automotive Rhythms, Adrenaline Lifestyles, Throttle Life, and Garvoto, the cutting-edge art display featured painted autos in real-time, custom bagger bikes, exotics, classic cars, import tuner vehicles, inspirational murals, DJs, trendy fashion boutiques, breakdancing, and local artist exhibits.
Meet the Artists and Art Cars
The energy from our EV rides was electrifying, while the art car vibe showed off the talents of the DMV’s most creative and sought-after artists. We partnered the Nissan Ariya with Shawn “SP the Plug” Perkins, the Kia EV6 with David Zambrano, a Hyundai IONIQ 6 with Luther Wart, the menacing Acura Integra Type S with Matt Long, and the efficient Toyota bZ4X with Josue of the Corinto Gallery. Rene Cris was also on the scene highlighting her canvased Barbie art car. Thousands of amazed spectators paid homage to the eclectic scene and witnessed the magic in person.
Ducati and Automobili Lamborghini Collaboration
It was a magnificent moment as we also curated an unveiling of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini in the D.C. market. The exclusive masterpiece is inspired by the Lamborghini Huracán STO with a limited number of 630 units to be produced. Revealed by proud owner Paulo DoCouto, media guests and spectators were in awe after the covers came off the high-tech, illuminating machinery. The Italian performance pair was highlighted in the ART-of-Motion exhibit along with other insightful displays.
Public Policy Preview
Known as the “Public Policy Show,” the Washington, D.C. Auto Show advanced its 10-day consumer event with an exclusive look at vehicles and policies shaping the U.S. auto industry. With a focus on electrified mobility, art cars, exotic vehicles, and import tuners rides, the family-focused show provided attendees with a bit of every genre from an enthusiast’s perspective.
Collaboration is Key for Successful Engagement
Well, that’s a wrap. We’ll see you next year for the 9th annual ART-of-Motion by Automotive Rhythms at the 2025 Washington, D.C. Auto Show. Additionally, we would like to thank product sponsors Michelin, Bose, eBay Motors, Matte Motorsports, and Hot Wheels and all of our participants, artists, auto partners, and collaborators. Let’s ride!
