BMW reveals its 19th Art Car

Thanks to a predominantly white colour scheme, the latest BMW Art Car appears more subdued than most of its predecessors.

The design, by conceptual artist John Baldessari, has been applied to an M6 GTLM.

Explaining his work, Baldessari said, “The ideas all came at once: for instance, the red dot on the roof, so you can see it from above, 'FAST' on one side and a picture of the car on the other side.

“I like the ambiguity, having two-dimension and three-dimension at the same time. Considering the car as an icon of contemporary life, my concept turned out playfully satirical, but it also highlights some of the trademark ideas that I use.”

This particular Art Car won't be relegated to a museum, though. It's due to compete in next month's Rolex 24 at Daytona, which is the first round of the 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
