The overall design of the model includes elements of pop art as well as geometric patterns paying homage to the sporty 8 Series Gran Coupe's shape. The colors at the rear are a homage to the artist's 2010 BMW Art Car, while the "POP!" written on each side as well as the vapor thrust imagery symbolize the power and speed of The 8 X Jeff Koons.

Finishing of the exterior paint job takes over 200 hours of work time, and only four cars will be painted each week. Each car comes with a large-format certificate signed by Jeff Koons, which in addition to Oliver Zipse's signature also contains the individual Vehicle Identification Number of the respective vehicle. The dust jacket of the Driver's Manual has also been designed by the artist.

Another signature of the artist is let into the cupholder panel, in the Bavarian blue colour from the BMW logo. “My edition of the BMW 8 Series is my dream car! It is very special to me and I’ve wanted to create a special edition BMW for a long time. It is sporty and flashy as well as minimalist and conceptual," Koons said.
