BMW’s Art Car Program Adds A Trio of Sinister Futura Builds To Its Ranks

With a lustrous graf-writing career spanning back to the pre-Wildstyle-era of the 1970s, New York’s Futura (aka “Futura 2000”) is nothing short of a legend in the street art scene. The now 64-year-old has worked with brands including Supreme, Hennessy, the North Face, Uniqlo, Nike, and Levi’s, and has shared gallery and exhibition spaces with other extremely high-profile artists such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michael Basquiat. The latest artistic endeavor from the pioneering artist is a special, hand-painted limited edition version of the BMW M2.

For the project, Futura — real name Leonard Hilton McGurr — has laid down a unique, stencil and spray paint-speckle-laden livery on a trio of M2 models. On top of the initial three examples, BMW and McGurr are releasing a total of 500 units of the 405hp coupe, all of which also boast matte black 19” M light-alloy wheels, and a modified, hand-painted interior — with M Sport seats done up in black and white Dakota leather — each of which will be done by Futura himself, meaning each specimen will be unique and no two will be identical. And, on top of the car itself, each of the 500 units will be sold with what the Bavarian brand is calling “a piece of art – unique in the history of BMW”. The BMW M2 By Futura 2000 is scheduled to enter showrooms in June of 2020. Pricing has yet to be announced, though interested parties can fill out an order form on the manufacturer’s website.
