    Hmmm... First thing that came to my mind was this car will set a record as far as LIDAR range - from how far away can the cops clock your speed. ;)

    I've seen cars with this wrap on the street. It should be illegal, as it's literally a rolling glare hazard.

    Add some spinner wheels and it will short out the remaining functioning part of your brain too.

    I was hoping to see a solution for all the chrome, some blacked out vinyl workings. I was surprised at this monstrosity!!

    Silver is my favorite color. That's quite a statement, since all silver is is a reflection of whatever hits it. It is every color that is nearby.

    I like it. I'd prefer it if it were just a standard height standard body shell no frills all silver, such as no carbon fiber accents like they did. (Plus I think I'd prefer the style front nose.) But the way they did it they sure do give a new meaning to "flash".

    I'm interested to know how it was done.

    As for personal opinion: Just No
