BMW M6 Art Car is FAST, Because it Says So

The BMW Art Car by John Baldessari has been released, showing the latest in a long line of BMWs offered up to artists.

The custom BMW M6 GTLM race car will be on public display until the closing of Art Basel in Miami Beach, before it proves itself on the race track at the Rolex 24 at Daytona on January 28-29, 2017. As the 19th BMW Art Car, the German automaker turned to Baldessari, who is known as the legend of an entire L.A. art scene. Baldessari drew on his famous artistic trademarks for the creation and admitted that moving from two- to three-dimensional art was a challenge he did enjoy.

As a committed minimalist, Baldessari worked with the colors red, yellow, blue and green along with his monochrome dots to leave his familiar colorful marks on the M6 GTLM. The artist spearheaded and oversaw the design of the M6 GTLM Art Car, which was executed with the help of a team of BMW engineers in early November at the BMW Body & Paint Training Center West in Oxnard, California.

'It is an honor to add this new masterpiece by John Baldessari to the BMW Art Car Collection today,' said Ludwig Willisch, president and CEO, BMW of North America. 'As one of the most important contemporary artists working today, John joins an incredible group from Calder and Hockney to Warhol and Koons that has contributed to this collection over the past forty years. He has used his signature aesthetic combining color, shapes and text to create a visually stunning work which will stand out at both the museum and on the racetrack in Daytona early next year.'
