I guess it's the same 458 I posted a few months ago. It's close to the George town bridge.

Holy Guacamole! That has to be my LEAST FAVORITE wrap-job I've ever seen.

What was he thinking?

Tell me it's owned by some teenage Bieber types.

wrap job? Does that mean paint?

I've got nothing against yellow*, but, in this case ...yes, it's pretty horrible and ruining a good car.


*But I don't like black headlights. They look like an affectation, like wearing shades in a dingy basement. Just my personal opinion.

No. Wrap means the car is wrapped in vinyl or foil. It’s the new-age alternative to paint, it can be removed once you’re done with the color. There is a huge variety of colors to choose from, even matte and chrome finishes. The down side being, the wrap is prone to damage easily with stone chipping etc.

Check WrapStyle, they’re one of the world’s best, on par with FibraFoil. They recently wrapped an Aventador in Bangalore.

Wow, fantastic! I've heard of paint protection films, but not this. New education! Thanks.

So, This is how the Sheiks get their cars in Shiny Gold and Silver colors huh?

Have you seen the Audi A4 (Silver) and the Merc ( Gold ) ? those pics were doing the rounds on the net a couple of years ago.

The car looks much better in the flesh . This guy also has a red R8 V10 with black/carbon fiber side blades ( can't remember exactly which) . The crashed black X6 also belongs to him . That car was a write off IIRC . Pics are in the exotics crash page .

These are just vinyls. If he peels everything off before selling, that would be one shiny new car in its original paint
