Futura 2000 has put his mark on the BMW M2 Competition at Frieze Los Angeles, an annual contemporary art fair in California’s City of Angels. The car is one of three such pieces the noted graffiti artist is working on with BMW. Additionally, Futura 2000 will design a limited-edition M2 Competition set to reach customer’s hands later in the year.
Fit with a set of 19-inch, jet-black wheels and wearing custom paintwork that appears to evoke a lightning storm in a postapocalyptic world, the first of the M2 Competitions by Futura 2000 looks properly menacing. It’s an apt appearance for a car that sports a 405-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six under its hood.
The exterior ambiance makes its way to the sports coupe’s interior, as well, where it’s applied to the dashboard and center-console trim. Black and white seats with blue stitching and a faux-suede steering wheel complete the interior appearance of the Frieze Los Angeles M2 Competition by Futura 2000. Nevertheless, the forthcoming limited-edition M2 Competition by Futura 2000 also includes a gray marker at the top-center of the steering wheel’s rim and trim-specific door sills with Futura 2000’s signature, as well as the consecutive limited-edition number of the vehicle.
BMW’s earmarked a mere 500 M2 Competitions by Futura 2000 for worldwide consumption, with the brand opening up its order books for the model on February 18. Pricing remains under wraps, however, we expect this special edition Bimmer to cost a good deal more than an ordinary M2 Competition, which starts at $59,895.
