BMW puts on M2 special jacket

A group of BMW M2s has been used as a moving canvas by artist Futura 2000. One of the three special one-offs is making its international appearance this week during an artist event in Los Angeles. A special edition will follow for a wider audience.

Futura 2000 is a big name in the graffiti world. Leonard Hilton McGurr, now 64, is from New York and started his career in the same city in the early 1970s. That happened in an illegal way at the time, now he gets three M2s from BMW. It concerns three M2 Competitions that Futura 2000 is highly personal, one by one. These so-called one-offs have become mobile works of art, whereby McGurr knows how to make special compositions using color.

For the M2s, McGurr opts for a dark appearance with many industrial influences. Take the blades of a grinder that can be found here and there on the carriage. One of the one-offs is presented during the Frieze artists’ event in Los Angeles.

The “regular customer” may of course not be left behind. That is why BMW comes with a limited special edition in the form of the M2 Edition designed by Futura 2000. The special grafitti work is then used in a few subtle places. The wheel arches are filled with 19-inch wheels as standard. Subtle references to the artist are also made within the 410-horsepower M2 Competition. The special edition follows in June, the Dutch importer “hopes to get hold of some of these exclusive M2s.”
