Looks like the matte paint styles are being taken to a new level. With the introduction of affordable vinyl wraps, car owners are able to change the look of their car’s exterior on a budget, with the ability to revert it back to factory with ease.
Last year Vivid Racing took a customer’s BMW 750LI and covered it with a very flashy gold vinyl wrap for the 2009 Gumball 3000. There’s no doubt the reflective gold did its job for Gumball, but clearly the owner wanted something… more subtle for the streets. So Vivid Racing rewrapped the car with matte green vinyl giving it a bit of an army theme. We’re actually surprised at how subtle and clean it looks. That’s not to say that we love it, but we don’t hate it either.
The 750LI also got a smoked taillight treatment, lowering springs from H&R and a set of 22-inch EXE Wheels wrapped with Nitto Invo tires. Vivid Racing seems to be making a name for themselves in vinyl wrap jobs, so if you’re in the Arizona area and want one yourself, make sure to look them up.
