In the world of matte wraps, the colors black, white, grey, blue, green and red maybe come to mind as acceptable finishes. Recently, a matte gold Nissan GT-R surfaced that made us wonder how other cars would look in non-traditional shades. Well, an answer to our curiosity has shown up with a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV exotic covered in a matte brown – yes, brown – finish. And surprisingly, it looks rather cool on the Lamborghini, contrasted by matte black accents and a nice set of gold wheels.

It would probably be way too easy to crack jokes comparing this Lamborghini to a Tootsie Roll, but really shows off how nice of an exotic the Murcielago is, being able to pull off a color such as matte brown. Apparently, the owner of the SV is a huge fan of brown-finished cars, having a Diablo 6.0 SE in his stable that’s also brown. In a way, having his white SV rewrapped in matte brown was a homage to his Diablo. A rare color for a modern exotic, we’re pleasantly surprised that our initial reaction wasn’t one of revulsion.
