On the occasion of this year’s Art Basel in Miami Beach, the BMW Art Car by John Baldessari celebrated its world premiere on November 30. The 19th vehicle of the BMW Art Car Collection was designed by the American master of conceptual art and revealed in the presence of the artist himself, Ludwig Willisch, President and CEO, BMW of North America, and Jens Marquardt, Director BMW Motorsport, at the Botanical Garden of Miami BeachJohn Baldessari’s BMW M6 GTLM, a race car with a speed of up to 300 km/h, depending on the race track, and 585 hp, will be on public display until the closing of Art Basel.

“Considering the car as an icon of contemporary life, my concept for the BMW Art Car turned out playfully satirical, but it also highlights some of the trademark ideas that I use. So you can say, the BMW Art Car is definitely a typical Baldessari and the fastest artwork I ever created!” – John Baldessari

Bill Auberlen (US), Alexander Sims (GB), Augusto Farfus (BR) and Bruno Spengler (CA) will take turns in driving the BMW Art Car next year.
