The BMW 7 Series Individual (750Li) by Esther Mahlangu made its first public appearance at the tenth edition of the FNB Joburg Art Fair, which took place at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg from 7 September to 10 September 2017.
The BMW 750Li Individual by Esther Mahlangu is a right-hand drive vehicle featuring Esther’s specially commissioned BMW panels painted in Ndebele art and also boasting an array of equipment from the comprehensive BMW Individual Collection in addition to the unique features incorporated by the BMW Individual Manufaktur.
The 20-inch light alloy wheels in w-spoke styling underscore the elegant appearance of the BMW 7 Series while the exterior bodywork is coated in BMW Individual Aventurine Red Metallic.
The interior features BMW Individual full fine-grain Merino leather in Smoke White/Black, the highest quality leather available for a BMW, including seats with weave-look stitching and hand-woven piping. The leather’s natural smoothness and its fine structure offers a unique look and feel.
The full leather trim also includes the rear panelling of the front seats, the upper and lower instrument panel as well as the door panels (upper instrument panel and door panels upper-arm trim in black Walknappa leather). A BMW Individual leather steering wheel with applications in Piano finish Black and an Alcantara headliner in Smoke White complete the exclusive ambience of the interior.
The FNB JoburgArtFair is Africa’s leading art fair focused on contemporary art from the continent. Now in its tenth year, it continues to strengthen this position by presenting the finest of contemporary African art alongside memorable exhibitions and groundbreaking initiatives.
“We are truly honoured to be the first platform where Esther Mahlangu could showcase her outstanding work and felt it a natural fit for the FNB JoburgArtFair; which echoes the South African contemporary art scene. It was a special moment to have her representing heritage juxtaposed with the future of design as we celebrated our 10th year, themed “looking back, looking forward” says Mandla Sibeko, FNB Joburg Art Fair Director.
