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.
