Video: Koons has high hopes for BMW art car at Le Mans

Updated: 


Artist Jeff Koons spoke of his hopes for the BMW Motorsport-run M3 GT2 that he designed and which will start this year's Le Mans 24 Hours on Saturday afternoon.

Koons was making his first appearance at Le Mans in support of the car that has taken him six months to develop and to urge it on to success. He and the team, which includes British driver and former World Touring Car Champion, Andy Priaulx, will have their work cut out in the ultra-competitive GT2 category if they are all to return home happy; the team qualified 11th in class.
