From 13 March to 30 April 2012, the BMW Museum will be showcasing a rather unusual exhibit – a 3D puzzle created by legendary puzzle writer CUS and presented on the BMW LMR V12, winner of the 1999 Le Mans and one of the most fascinating racing cars in BMW history. The so-called “Mystery Car” will be parked in the foyer of the BMW Museum and can be viewed without an admission ticket.
The exterior surface of the race car is designed as an extremely challenging brainteaser: puzzle fiends with plenty of ingenuity are called for. The puzzle contains no words whatsoever, consisting solely of symbols, mysterious numbers and letters, as well as images, pointers and abbreviations. Only those who correctly interpret all 16 parts of the puzzle, then work out the relationship between them and understand the mechanics by which all the parts mesh together, will be able to solve the puzzle and come up with the sentence concerning the BMW LMR V12 that is the correct solution.
