Jeff Koons has unveiled his Art Car at the Centre Pompidou in Paris ahead of its participation in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France on June 12-13, 2010.
On June 1, Koons unveiled and signed his BMW M3 GT2, making him the 17th BMW Art Car artist, following in the footsteps of Warhol, Lichtenstein and Stella.
Three hundred VIP guests watched him unveil the design in the exact same spot that Roy Lichtenstein presented and signed his Art Car back in 1977.
In celebration of the 70th anniversary of BMW’s history victories at the Mille Miglia, BMW has marked the occasion with a few events and restoration cars.
However, now BMW has gone one step further and taken its top of the line roadster, the Z4 sDrive35is, and created a limited edition Mille Miglia edition.
Only 99 units will be buit, each coming with a Polaris Metallic matte finish, blacked out front grill, an M aerodynamic kit and 19-inch wheels finished in Dark Chrome.
