BMW M3 GT2 Art Car
The 17th car in the tradition of BMW Art Cars, the BMW M3 GT2 Art Car created in 2010 by Jeff Koons made its world premiere and was signed by Koons at the Paris’ Centre Pompidou on June 1, 2010, following the lead of Roy Lichtenstein who debuted his car at the same venue in 1977. The number 79 pays tribute to the Lichtenstein car, which wore the number 76 as a tribute to the 1976 Frank Stella car, both of which raced at Le Mans. The Jeff Koons M3 GT2 raced at Le Mans in 2010, driven by Dirk Werner, Dirk Muller and Andy Priaulx. The BMW M3 GT2 is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 500 horsepower.
