In the wake of the further development of BMW Individual, the German company’s customization program, BMW revealed its latest collaboration at this year’s Frieze Los Angeles art show: a multi-tiered project with international artist FUTURA 2000.
Known for his mastery of color, concentric forms and kinetic composition, FUTURA 2000 created three exclusive and unique versions of the BMW M2 Competition, while also designing a limited-edition of the BMW M2 Competition, scheduled for public purchase in June 2020.
One of the three hand-painted BMW M2 by FUTURA 2000 celebrated its world premiere at the second Frieze Los Angeles at the Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood held over the weekend.
The artist worked extensively on the three unique versions of the BMW M2 by FUTURA 2000 both on the exterior and in the interior. The limited-production models also bear his unique signature. The trim strips on the instrument panel and the center console of each vehicle boast a special, individually created FUTURA 2000 design. The bi-colored, Dakota leather M sports seats in black and ivory white feature polar blue contrast stitching.
In addition, the interior package includes an M Alcantara leather-clad sports steering wheel with a grey 12 o’clock marking and special door sill trims bearing the consecutive limited-edition number and a Futura signature. From the outside, the BMW M2 Edition designed by FUTURA 2000 is recognizable by the painted surfaces on the front and rear aprons and the side sills. Each car is also fitted with 19-inch jet black light alloy wheels.
