Ha! Jeff Koons' BMW Art Car Bows Out of Race Early

Jeff Koons BMW art car

A couple weeks after unveiling his color-streaked BMW Art Car, Jeff Koons's fast-looking ride turned out to be quite slow, bowing out early at the Le Mans 24-Hour endurance race in France this weekend. Car blog the Wheel Deal reports that the Koonsmobile got into a bit of an accident (that's an expensive paint job!) after puncturing a tire, went into the pit for repairs and returned to the race briefly before retiring from competition around the fifth hour of the annual 24-hour car race. I guess that's what happens when you spend more on the hood than what's under it. (@ArtNetDotCom)
