There's a dazzling new BMW 2 Series art car
Didn't know that Mexico will be making the new Two? Here's a brightly coloured newsflash
There’s an all-new BMW 2 Series coupe, and opinions on its styling are best described as ‘mixed’. If you’re currently inhabiting the ‘unsure’ camp, then maybe the art car treatment can help sway you…
BMW has a storied history in art cars but this isn’t seen as one that’ll grace any galleries – instead its eight-colour design melds the flags of Germany and Mexico to denote the fact that examples of the latest 2 will be rolling out of a South American factory.
The design guzzled over six litres of paint, every drop of which was applied by hand to make it a seven-week process to jazz up this particular 2 Series. It's unclear exactly at which point certain BMW employees began cursing the fussiness of some areas of the latest coupe’s styling.
It goes without saying they picked the quickest 2er available at the moment – the 369bhp M240i in xDrive form.
So, for those of you not swayed by metallic aubergine – is this artsier treatment more likely to drag you into a BMW dealership?
