On June 21st, I read an article about a guy from the UK who hired Raccoon Vehicle Branding to put black velvet on his Porsche Panamera. The coat does have an adhesive that protects it from all sorts of weather but still, this is just ridiculous. It was the only one of its kind in the UK but it wouldn’t be long for someone else to join in on the fun.
July 1, London. Raccoon Vehicle Branding was right, another velvet car would pop up in the area. Except this time, it is a Ferrari 599. This Furr-ari was an attention grabber and everyone wanted to pet it. However, it just screams ugly.
July 30th, France. A royal blue velvet coated Range Rover Evoque. At this point, I was thinking to myself that people are now building drive-able plush cars. That is honestly what they look like. Well, I have had enough. This fad needs to end soon.
If you hated chrome coats on exotic cars, you better loath the velvet. Why someone would do such a thing? Attention? The feel? We may never know. What I do know is that I am sure there are more deserving people in the world who would treat their beauties with the proper coat it deserves, and it sure as hell isn’t velvet.
