SEMA 2010: Matte-Grey Jaguar XJ220 is Not a Wrap

One of the big stories at this year’s SEMA Show is the launch of Wraptivo by Meguiar’s. Essentially the car care experts at Meguiar’s have decided to make custom wrap jobs for your car more readily available. And with most folks preferring the wrap route (because it’s far cheaper and not permanent), others prefer to go all in.

That’s the case with the matte-grey Jaguar XJ220 we spied outside the SEMA convention center in Las Vegas. Thinking no one would have the audacity (or lack of concern for damaged resale value) to actually paint an XJ220 this color we had to ask to the folks from Specialty Car Craft who brought the Jaguar collectible to the show. A representative confirmed that it is in fact a paint job, and that its for sale, with the previous owner moving up to something even more exotic – because, you know, a 500+ horsepower twin-turbo V6 XJ220 isn’t enough. And apparently it’s not as the owner has already modified the engine to pump out over 700-hp.

As it turns out, the folks at Specialty Car Craft pride themselves on this sort of work; particularly on exotics and high-end luxury cars. Also on display by the company is a matte-black Rolls-Royce Phantom, a matte-green Lamborghini Murcielago and a matte-orange Lotus Exige.
