“We are very proud to have secured an internationally renowned artist like FUTURA 2000 for the design of our show car. The BMW M2 by FUTURA 2000 exceeds our expectations and is a further step by BMW Individual in its collaboration with world-famous artists.”
Markus Flasch, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW M GmbH

THE DESIGN.

High performance that breaks convention.

The exterior, as well as interior trim panels, of the BMW M2 by FUTURA 2000 has been designed and hand-painted by the graffiti pioneer. Altogether, the New Yorker worked on the project for months, from the first design concept to the finished BMW M2 by FUTURA 2000. To achieve the unique look of this M vehicle, FUTURA 2000 applied a total of 3-4 layers of paint by using the BMW M equipment and tools for hand-painting the car. The base colour of this striking work of art is black, which is repeatedly overlaid with sparkling white dots and lightning-like lines. The recurring motif is a circular saw blade, one of FUTURA 2000 signature styles, which was applied by hand with an elaborate process.

THE ARTIST.

Born Leonard Hilton McGurr, FUTURA 2000 established himself as a pioneer when graffiti met the more formal gallery ecosystem in the 1980s. He quickly became known for his radical approach on the street, introducing abstraction to an entirely letter-based discipline, and found himself part of a wider art movement that included the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, and Dondi White. Besides his decades-long career as a contemporary artist, he has achieved great success as a commercial artist, collaborating with several well-known brands.

UNIQUE EDITION.

A high-performance work of art for M enthusiasts.

In addition to the three exclusive one-offs, there will also be a limited-edition series version inspired by this masterpiece: the BMW M2 Edition designed by FUTURA 2000. No two models will be identical as the exterior designed by FUTURA 2000 is recognisable by the painted surfaces on the front and rear aprons and the side sills. The interior trim and centre console are hand-painted by FUTURA 2000 himself. This means that as well as receiving a high-performance BMW M2 Competition vehicle, every buyer gets to own a one-of-a-kind piece of art – unique in the history of M GmbH. The special model will be available from June 2020.

  • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

    Official data on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the NEDC take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size; figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. WLTP values are used for assessing taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions, as well as for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies, if applicable. Where applicable, the NEDC values listed were calculated based on the new WLTP measurement procedure and then converted back to the NEDC measurement procedure for comparability reasons. For more information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures, see https://www.bmw.de/wltp.

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
