Yes, this is true. Have a friend currently in the process of matt-ing her 911. Most probably a matt white with carbon fiber inserts. Should look like a right bada** on the streets!

Wow never knew a wrap was being done like this. I thought it came in ready made tailor shape panels , or painting process like the g wagon. Anyways looks really exciting.
And a 911 in matte white. Wish i could see pictures of the same.

Thanks a ton for the video Bivin. That is some highly skilled hand-coating!
So cool....once you're bored of the matte, you can get back the red Ferrari look. But the main issue might be if the car gets bruised. Won't the whole coat have to be plastered again?!

Great video Bivin! What artists! Superb work!

...but I would have imagined it would take a little longer than four minutes to do the entire job! Amazing! :P

So, having seen some videos and reviews of the new 458 I think I'm changing my opinion on the looks of the thing...it's starting to grow on me and it's a sweet car too!

Mate i would have to say that Matt black absolutely stands out. Love the color.. we had a matt balck R35 GTR in our Nissan cruise in Sydney last Sunday and looked amazing..I would love to have one in matt black.. am waiting for mine mid next year but in Silver .. Can't aford matt black :(...

Apart from noisy gear box and heat the car is amazing around the corners. I keep waiting for the weekend to get a ride in GTR lol..You gonna love it man .. it's a true racing car

Note from the Team-BHP Support Team : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.

Hi Ecks,I have been following this thread for months now and I must say that I am a big fan of your collection.
Am not too sure if you will like my suggestion,how about matting your LP? Am sure it would look meaner than an F-22 Raptor.
