#17 Jeff Koons (2010)
The latest model in the BMW Art Cars series comes from the American artist Jeff Koons. He sees the BMW M3 GT2 with the racing number 79 as a tribute to the BMW M1 designed by Andy Warhol in 1979.
'These racing cars are like life itself, they are bursting with power and have tremendous energy. You can be drawn into it, build on it and unite with this energy.’ This is the artist himself talking about the inspiration for his work. As with the M1 painted by Warhol, Koon’s BMW also took part in the legendary Le Mans 24-hour race.
