Artist Jeff Koons has created a limited edition painted BMW M3 GT2 miniature. The artist, known for his stainless steel balloon animals and gigantic flower sculptures, has recently been collaborating with car makers like BMW and Aston Martin on vibrantly painted vehicles. Last year, Koons created a BMW M3 GT2 Art Car, which competed in the 2010 Le Mans race.
The ratio of the BMW M3 GT2 miniature to its real-sized counterpart is 1:18, but it features every detail of the original. This metal model has a contrasting silver interior, a removable hood and a trunk that can actually be opened. The exterior features Jeff Koons’ signature splash of color and vivid and chromatic striations on a black background.
There are only 5,000 of the BMW M3 GT2 miniature models made, which are currently available at select BMW dealerships. Each model also comes with its own display case.
