Just 99 examples of BMW 8 X JEFF KOONS made a great $ 350,000 a pop. However, only one of them was signed by the artist himself, thus making it even more special. This is actually the last M850i Gran Coupe produced for this limited-powered variant. The entire batch is fully sold out in three weeks after the official premiere on 16 February.
Artist signed 8 X JEFF KOONS won MS 125,000 on MSRP at Christie’s auction on April 4th. All proceeds from the sale of $ 475,000 will be redirected to the benefit of the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC). Jeff Kuons, whose signature is emblazoned on the B-pillar of the car, has helped ICMEC for over 20 years.
The winning bidder not only had the opportunity to drive home with 8 X JEFF KOONS that the man signed himself but also received an invitation. In fact, the 67-year-old American artist will take the lucky man on a tour of his Manhattan studio.
As for the car, it is “the most detailed car designed in the history of BMW”. External Liver No less than 11 colors are combined in a process that takes more than 200 hours. All vehicles are bundled with a large-format certificate signed by Jeff Kuns, signed by Oliver Gypsy, and a separate vehicle identification number. Funny fact – the artist also made the owner’s manual dust jacket while the Kapholder also has his signature inside the panel.
The 8 X JEFF KOONS is one of the most colorful BMWs we’ve ever seen
The single 8 X JEFF KOONS was on display at Rockefeller Plaza from 1 to 4 April. It is now heading towards various industrial events in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. One venue it will participate in this year is going to be the Speedy Goodwood Festival June 23-26.
This is the latest in a long string of BMW art cars that have been designed by many artists since 1975. Jeff Kuns himself was responsible for 17M Art Car, an equally colorful M3 GT2 from 2010.
