American artist Jeff Koons is a celebrated if somewhat divisive figure in the art world, best known for his balloon animals cast in stainless steel and massive topiary sculptures. In 2010 the artist was asked by BMW to design an M3 GT2 as part of the automaker’s ongoing “Art Car” project. Koons consulted with BMW’s head of design Adrian van Hooydonk to ensure the applied graphics wouldn’t adversely impact the car’s aerodynamics, as the vehicle would be entered into the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. The M3 GT2, in all its streaky multi-colored glory has now been reproduced as a 1:18 scale model, which comes packaged on an acrylic platform with transparent top. The Art Car is now art that you can own, available starting in December through the BMW Shop.
