The Oriental-inspired trend of gold- or chrome-wrapping cars looks like (and is) a cheap farce compared to a car made entirely out of visible carbon fiber. One is apparent, opulent luxury, whereas the other is understated and much more tasteful.
It’s not an in-your-face kind of finish, but the people that will notice it will not be the same ones who would positively point at something like a chrome-wrapped Bugatti Veyron, for instance.
Take this stunningly attractive Koenigsegg Agera R which comes finished in visible carbon with a blue tint. We’ve seen this kind of finish on other cars like Paganis and Bugattis, but on this Agera it just looks oh-so suitable; they really should stop offering the option to paint and just sell different tints of carbon.
It’s such a nice and well executed finish that it’s a waste to hide it; scroll down to check out the blue-carbon Agera R in the video below by BrianZuk.
