The art-inspired BMW 8 Series sold for a cause.
Earlier this year, BMW announced a creative collaboration for a cause with American artist Jeff Koons. The partnership took shape as a vibrant BMW M850xi Gran Coupé that features Jeff Koons’ famous comic book designs and patterns. The interior layout is designed in a multi-colored fashion made from premium leather that sports a vibrant red and blue superhero-like look. The luxury auction house professionals at Christie’s New York are proud to announce the sale of the first and only artist-signed THE 8 X JEFF KOONS chassis during its charity auction yesterday.
After intense intentional bidding both online and on-site, the one-of-a-kind BMW M850xi Gran Coupé sold for an astonishing $475,000. The highlight of the entire event was the announcement that all proceeds from the six-figure sale would go directly to benefit the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children. The CMEC charity is one that Jeff Koons continues to advocate for after being involved with them for over 2-years. The partnership between BMW and Jeff Koons blends the best of both worlds while bringing awareness to a growing worldwide conflict.
