Artist-signed: 475,000 dollars at Christie’s for the last THE 8 X JEFF KOONS.

The only Jeff-Koons-signed BMW M850i xDrive Gran Coupé was sold at Christie’s auction house for 475,000 dollars.

7 April 2022

On April 4, the only artist-signed BMW M850i xDrive Gran Coupé was sold at Christie’s auction house for 475,000 dollars. After intense international bidding both online and on site, the hammer of Tash Perrin, Deputy Chairman and auctioneer at Christie’s, finally went down to the applause of those invited to a festive dinner in Christie’s main auction room.

Guests included the artist himself, Alexander S. C. Rower, president of the Calder Foundation, the collector Larry Warsh, and the artist FUTURA 2000. This M850i xDrive Gran Coupé was the very last example being produced from the limited edition’s 99 pieces which had sold out three weeks after its world premiere in mid-February. All proceeds of the auction go to the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), that Jeff Koons has personally been involved with for over two decades

From the choice of colors to its overall look and use of material my car has a superhero feel to it. Giving to ICMEC and literally saving the lives of children is a superhero endeavor, now more than ever. I am thrilled that the auction of the car was such a great success!
