BMW Art Car by John Baldessari.
From art fair to racetrack.
21. Jan. 17

Will this car win the "Rolex 24 at DAYTONA 2017"?

We won't know until the 24 hour event to be held on 28 and 29 January in Daytona, USA, is over.

But one thing we do already know is that this 585 bhp BMW M6 GTLM is likely to be the most valuable car in the starting grid.

Because the even more (motor) sports-oriented brother of the BMW M6 Coupé didn't first see the light of day in an unglamorous racetrack pit lane but as part of the Art Basel in Miami Beach in December 2016 – one of the most highly regarded art fairs in the world. 

Here still behind glass: the nineteenth vehicle in the BMW Art Car Collection in Miami.

The meanwhile nineteenth vehicle in the BMW Art Car Collection was designed by the American artist, John Baldessari. He is just the latest in a series of important representatives of contemporary art to join the extraordinary line-up of artists like Calder, Hockney, Warhol and Koons, who have left their mark on this collection over the last forty years.

John Baldessari works exclusively with the colours red, yellow, blue and green.

A staunch minimalist, John Baldessari presented the vehicle himself: "The BMW Art Car is definitely a typical Baldessari and the fastest artwork I ever created!" Up to 300 km/h fast, to be precise.

One particular reason for the special appeal of BMW Art Cars has always been that they are capable of asserting themselves both in museums and on the racetrack. In this case, it is the Daytona International Speedway which is waiting to put it through its paces.

Jens Marquardt, BMW Motorsport Director, said: "The design of this BMW M6 GTLM is absolutely unique. We will give our very best to ensure that this rolling work of art will not only provide a visual highlight but also be successful on the track."

There are only a few days to go. Then it will be time for the BMW M6 GTLM with the starting number 19 to leave its comfort zone and enter the pit lane of the 24 hour Daytona race, in the safe hands of Auberlen (USA), Sims (GB), Farfus (BRA), and Spengler (CAN).
