This new BMW 2 Series joins the BMW Art Car collection

Begun in the 1970s, the BMW Art Car collection is expanding with a new work, a 2 Series which celebrates the start of production in the San Luis Potosi plant.

It was in the 1970s that the French auctioneer Hervé Poulain created the first BMW Art Car by entrusting his racing M1 (he was a Gentleman Driver in his spare time) to the painter Alexander Calder for a complete “decoration” of his bodywork. . Without knowing it, he launched a movement which was taken over by BMW and continues to this day. Since then, around twenty Art Cars have been created and are exhibited in the best museums on the planet.

New collaboration

Presented recently, the new BMW 2 Series has just entered production. For the first time, it will also be assembled at the factory in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, alongside the 3 Series. This is to celebrate this collaboration

that the German manufacturer gave a BMW 240 i to the visual artist Bosco to be painted.

German-Mexican friendship

Very colorful, the dress of the car represents the fusion of the Mexican and German flags, symbol of German-Mexican friendship. Carried out with the help of several BMW bodybuilders, this work required 6.1 liters of paint and 2.5 liters of varnish. Everything was done manually and required a lot of patience !
