Well, today is Halloween. It’s the day when people will dress up as witches and goblins and go trick-or-treating. Who are we kidding, it’s going to actually be, let’s be nice, provocative-looking nurses getting drunk. Let’s be real. However, it’s also a time when people get very creative with their pumpkin carving.
Pumpkin carving is a bit juvenile, but fun nevertheless. It’s a time when you can let your creativity run wild and make virtually anything your imagination can think of. And because it’s relatively simple, it can be fun and harmless and can be done in said provocative outfits with beer in hand. Automotive enthusiasts like to carve their favorite car emblems or, if they’re talented enough, entire cars into the side of pumpkins. So, in the spirit of Halloween, let’s take a look at the best BMW carved pumpkins.
This one is my personal favorite, as it’s the Z3 M Coupe’s silhouette carved into the pumpkin with the M Division emblem inside of it. How do you not love the Clown Shoe. But what i love is that this carver is a true M enthusiast, because not many folks like the Z3 M Coupe. This pumpkin shows dedication to the Bavarian brand.
This one is pretty simple, but done really well. It looks like they used some precision cutting tools and a stensil on this pumpkin. No freehand here. But who doesn’t love the BMW M3? Seriously, it’s the best. But having this cool M3 pumpkin sitting atop what seems to be an actual E92 M3 with a carbon fiber trunk lid is pretty cool.
Well, it doesn’t get much simpler than this. It’s the BMW logo and if you didn’t already know that, you must be here by accident. I do like how well done it is, though. It took quite some time to really carve out those letter so deeply and it looks really good. Overall, it’s simple and cool. Me likes.
Now this one is impressive. Carving and entire BMW i8 into the side of a pumpkin, giving it open scissor doors and even shading it is really impressive. Whoever carved this pumpkin wasn’t messing around. The BMW i8 might be the most difficult car, and certainly the most difficult BMW, to carve into a pumpkin, as it has so many different shapes and lines in it. Really impressive stuff.
For our last pumpkin, we will show you a video from BMW USA. In the video, it shows a time-lapse of someone carving out a BMW M2 into a pumpkin. Now, this guy is far more talented than most pumpkin carvers and, unlike 90 percent of pumpkin carvers, doesn’t seem to be drinking while he’s doing it. The video does show just how much work goes into carving something this detailed, though. Usually, pumpkin carving is done by friends, with beer in hand, saying “Look, I can carve [insert your choice of human genetalia here] into the pumpkin!”. This video, however, is done by an artist with a steady hand and sober mind. And the final product is really, very cool. Check it out.
