Too hot in your car this summer? You could copy French artist Benedetto Bufalino, who converted his run-of-the-mill Seat Ibiza sedan into a fully-functional jacuzzi bath. The 32-year-old from Lyon, who describes his work as art, cut off the car’s roof and removed its entire interior to fit in the custom-made hot tub.
Metro catches up with the artist to learn about his creation.
Metro: What inspired you to make it? Boredom?
I like to give other functions to cars. It’s called a Seat Ibiza, so it deserves an endless summer party
How did you make it?
I removed the car’s entire interior. Then I inserted some planks of wood, resin, fiberglass, special paint, and voilà – it’s ready.
You enjoy your new ride?
My friends do a lot. So we have parties in it. Also, it doubles up as an artwork, the kind of stuff I present at artistic events and biennales of contemporary art.
By the numbers: 10
It took Benedetto and his assistant took to convert their car into a party jacuzzi.
