Nice until you encounter it on a really bright morning when the sun is low on the horizon.

I predict burned retinas.

that matches the theory that FOCA said. I wonder how much it would cost to do the car?

Surely its an illegal modification for road use, as it can be blinding to other road users?

I've seen that Focus RS at Ford Fair last year - looks ace

Also seen a Chromed R35 GTR - Mark who owns MGT Racing, his bro in law has one. Awesome car.

I think its made out of pvc or something like that (similar to stickers) so it could be removed, in theory. I suppose if it was done to a brand new car it would protect the paint from scratches etc, and when it started looking "scabby" you could do it again or remove it to reveal the "like new" paint underneath

I once bought a van that was fully sign-written, it belonged to one of those double glazing companies and part of the conditions was the sign-writing had to be removed, it was a nightmare to get of, it took days, the best way was with a kettle to get the stickers off (slowly) and tar-and-glue to get the remaining sticky residue off

Driving/ Inside the silver car the main problem would be the sun shining off the bonnet, this could be fixed by not "silver wrapping" the bonnet/ fitting a carbon-fiber/ black bonnet bonnets were painted black in the 60s to stop the sun blinding the driver (eg- Lotus Cortina) i think a black or gray carbon-fiber bonnet would not look out of place on a sitver-wrapped car

The silver "mirror" on the back of the car would help stop the cars behind you dazzling you with their full beams!

I suppose you could convince the wife she could check her hair/ make-up before she even got in the car :lol:

Can you imagine this doing 180mph? It'd practically be invisible because it would just reflect its surroundings. Well under certain conditions/circumstamces anyway
