Futura 2000 & BMW Showcase Limited-Edition M2 Art Car

A highly-limited run will be available to purchase.

Futura 2000 and BMW have unveiled their collaborative M2 Art Car ahead of Frieze LA 2020. The collaboration sees the sportscar get an all-over graffiti treatment hand-painted by Futura 2000, giving the car’s bodywork a black and white makeover covered in the artist’s unique aesthetic.

Signature motifs such as dripping paint effects, speckled flecks and cloudy, smudged spray-painted designs are spotted all around the BMW M2. Adding to the dark theme is a set of blacked-out rims, a gloss black grille, dark-tinted windows, and an interior served up in black and grey hues to match the outside.

BMW has a long legacy in developing art cars, having previously worked with Jeff Koons, Cao Fei, David Hockney, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and many more. Unlike previous collaborators, the Futura 2000 x BMW M2 Art Car is actually up for sale and can be inquired about on BMW’s website. Take a closer look at the Futura 2000 x BMW M2 Art Car in the gallery above.
