Entire Collection of BMW Art Cars on eBay

BMW x Jeff Koons scale model art cars

Remember the Jeff Koons art car for BMW? The car company made an edition of 5,000 1:18 scale model miniatures, but they went as fast as Koons’ colorful BMW M3 GT2 original. While you can still find the individual collectible metal minis on auction for about $400 each, there’s currently an eBay opportunity to grab the entire collection of BMW art cars for $5,875.00 (~ $367 per car).

Here’s a list of all the BMW art cars to date:

  • Alexander Calder (USA) 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL
  • Frank Stella (USA) 1976 BMW 3.0 CSL
  • Roy Lichtenstein (USA) 1977 BMW 320I Group 5 Race Version
  • Andy Warhol (USA) 1979 BMW M1 Group 4 Race Version
  • Ernst Fuchs (A) 1982 BMW 635 CSi
  • Robert Rauschenberg (USA) 1986 BMW 635 CSi
  • Michael Jagamara Nelson (AUS) 1989 BMW M3 Group A Race Version
  • Ken Done (AUS) 1989 BMW M3 Group A Race Version
  • Matazo Kayama (J) 1990 BMW 535i
  • César Manrique (E) 1990 BMW 730i
  • A.R. Penck (D) 1991 BMW Z1
  • Esther Mahlangu (ZA) 1991 BMW 525i
  • Sandro Chia (I) 1992 BMW 3-Series Racing Touring Car Prototype
  • David Hockney (GB) 1995 BMW 850CSi

  • Olafur Eliasson (DEN) 2007 BMW H2R World Speed Record Hydrogen Car
  • Jeff Koons (USA) 2010 BMW M3 GT2

The eBay auction is for a lot of 16 cars, while I count 17 above. Perhaps one of the originals wasn’t made into a die-cast mini? I spot Koons, Warhol, Holzer… So who’s missing? The  auction runs for about 20 more hours…
