The car he used was an M3 GT2 model. The design was inspired by the original Art Car made by Andy Warhol back in 1979 and has a special look, just as we expected.

“I always enjoyed the Art Cars – Warhol’s Car, Roy Lichtenstein’s car, Stella’s, Calder’s – all the cars have always been fantastic. I just wanted to participate. The art world is like a family and I wanted to also be involved in this dialogue of designing an Art Car. Today, I’m proud that this car is there alongside their work, too,” Jeff said at the event.

Amongst the guests you could spot representatives of the art world such as Chris Dercon, Director of Tate Modern, the curator of the 8th Berlin Biennale, Juan A. Gaitán, as well as the auctioneer Simon de Pury.
