Since 1975, BMW has commissioned many legendary artists to add their vision of automotive design to their renowned “Art Car” program, some of which we saw on a visit to LACMA. From Andy Warhol to Alexander Calder to Roy Lichtenstein, each iconic artist makes their own unique artistic twist on the “Ultimate Driving Machine”. And for the 17th edition, Jeff Koons was selected to participate in this storied tradition.

To celebrate, Jeff opened up his studio for a rare peek into his Manhattan “factory” located in the Chelsea art district. From the great images, we get a little taste of how he came to create some of his detailed sculptures and paintings which we saw at the opening of his show at the Serpentine Gallery.

See it all after the jump.
