Artist Jeff Koons to design special-edition BMW M850i Gran Coupe

BMW 8 Gran Coupe X Jeff Koons

Jeff Koons, together with Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of Management at BMW AG, announced that the American artist will create a special edition of the M850i xDrive Gran Coupe. The limited, collector’s edition 8 GC will go on sale after its world premiere at Frieze Los Angeles in February 2022.

The "8 X Jeff Koons" will be finished in multi-layer paint that will take 285 hours to apply onto each car. Eleven different exterior colors will be made, ranging from blue to silver as well as from yellow to black, and only two cars will be produced each week.

The multi-colored interior will feature fine leather and a cupholder lid, complete with an edition badging and the artist’s engraved signature. The seats are made up of the striking red and blue colors of the company’s high-performance unit BMW M.

"Overall, the energetic and powerful design includes both elements of pop art as well as geometric patterns paying homage to the sporty 8 Series Gran Coupe’s intricate contours and shape," BMW said. 

In 2010, Koons created a unique BMW M3 GT2 Art Car which performed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
