BMW announced a special version of the Grand Coupe of the eighth series called The 8 X Jeff Koons back in January during the presentation of the updated family, but it has only now been completely declassified. At the same time, the manufacturer announced that cars designed by the famous American artist Jeff Koons will also be available in Russia.

The main feature of the project is the body, in the design of which 11 different colors were used at once. The colorful livery, which requires about 285 hours of work (mostly manual), contains elements of pop art and geometric patterns. “Pop!” and images of puffs of smoke are intended to emphasize the dynamic nature of the car, and bright contrasts are a reference to the “art car” created by the same Koons in 2010 based on the racing BMW M3 GT2.

The BMW The 8 X Jeff Koons will be limited to 99 units, with only two such cars per week using magnifying glasses to achieve the highest possible quality: the company says that for the implementation of this project it was necessary to develop a new painting process and send specialists to additional learning.

The interior of the cars will also be especially bright. For example, the seat upholstery will be done in red and blue shades: this is both a reference to superhero costumes from comics and to the corporate colors of the BMW M sports division. In addition, the special edition emblem and the signature of Jeff Koons are used in the interior design.
