Werner Bührer produced amazing technical drawings that we have grown to love.
We admire the old drawings by masters like Werner Bührer. We’ve come across Buhrer’s 3D cut-away drawing frequently and it never fails, we fall in love with the art of automobiles all over again.
Bührer’s detailed drawings are powerful reminders of our love for automobiles.
Bührer spent many years as a contributor to car magazines like Road & Track and many others, where the Swiss born technical artist specialized in style analysis of cars. Having studied industrial design in Germany, Bührer worked in many different fields where his industrial drawings have been held as standards to which others are measured by.
Amazingly little seems to be known of this artist whose art has graced pages of the magazines with the circulation reaching millions. For decades Buhrer’s Styling Analysis, Racing car illustrations and article art appeared in Road & Track and other magazines. I have searched for the biographical information of Werner Bührer, but have found little. Perhaps Dean’s Garage readers can help uncover Werner’s background.
