BMW G42 M240i Unofficial Art Car

BMW employees at BMW's Mexico plant San Luis Potosi joined with a local artist in putting together this unofficial BMW Art Car based on the new G42 M240i coupe.

The livery paint scheme features 8 colors, blending the Mexico and Germany flag colors - the country of production and country of development. The paint was applied manually and took three weeks in total.

Accentuates how disconnected the headlights are from the grill on the new 2 series. Not a good look IMO

Employees in Mexico did something unofficial (aka having fun)...

Patiently waits for the "...and this is why I would never buy a BMW that's made in Mexico" crowd.

I didn't notice dude was using his left hand until halfway through then I saw the sling. Ok, where's his right hand?

Either way the gentleman is talented. 👏🏽

Well, I'll certainly take this as more of an art car compared to slapping "FAST" on the side of an M6 and calling that an "Art Car."

See BMW, you can actually apply fun colors to your cars and it sticks to it. Try it sometimes. Kudos for Thundernight thought.

The yellow and green paint actually really suits the car. Hope the M2 gets IOMG as a paint option

Agreed. I was hoping for a San Remo Green / Cognac combination on a MY23 M240i but that colour is not a standard one for MY22 at least. Otherwise an Isle of Man Green / Kyalami Orange combination would look good on an M2 too.

Such a shame there's no San Remo on the G42, would go really well with the black cills, when there is a Cognac interior option. I'm unlikely to pay 6 times the price of metallic paint for BMW Individual Verde Ermes. Green cars with brown interiors sound awful but seem to making a comeback.

All I can think of is that it visually slims down the body…if it was the same color as the body…it would probably look disproportioned to greenhouse

Side effect of it being based on a tall(er) sedan designed to take a floor full of batteries 🔋 ???

I'm with you. At least it's not as bad as the black side panels on the Porsche Macan that you have to pay $500+ to get painted.
