Car wrapping is not just reserved for tacky advertisements to get people’s attention; it is now a growing trend and a way for people to personalize their cars. A car wrap can be tasteful and understated or it can be colorful and eye-catching to make a car stand out from the crowd.
The appeal of this trend has even been embraced by big name celebrities that want to create custom cars that cannot be found anywhere else. Car wrapping can be a way for these celebrities to add a color, design or finish that would be impossible to find. Many celebrities are going the extra mile to create a wrap that customizes their unique and typically expensive luxury cars.
Silvery Car Wrpas
One of the most popular trends in the world of car wrapping is using a chrome wrap that creates a silvery and reflective look that can be too expensive and difficult to produce with paint. A chrome wrap can be easily installed and removed without changing the value of a car the way that a paint job potentially could.
Celebrities like Justin Bieber have embraced the chrome look as he has been seen driving his silver chrome wrapped Fisker Karma that his manager gave him as a birthday present. Rapper, Flo Rida has also gone with the chrome option with his wrapped Bugatti Veryon. The chrome look is not limited to silver, though, as rapper Tyga chose a gold chrome wrap for his Audi R8.
Matte Finish Popular Among Celebrities
Car wraps do not always have to be as flashy as silver or gold chrome. Celebrities sometimes opt for a matte finish like Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker’s matte army green Cadillac Escalade. The matte army green adds a unique camouflage look to a mainstream SUV that works to catch people’s attention when he’s driving around L.A.
Car wraps are typically made out of vinyl but some celebrities choose more luxurious materials like hip hop artist the Game’s leather wrapped Ferrari F430. The leather wrap cost the Game $200,000 and is one of the more unusual choices for a car wrap.
Vinyl Wrap Popular As Well
Other celebrities choose to create the appearance of texture through the typical vinyl wrap material like Snooki’s snake skin wrapped Cadillac. The printed snake skin design gives the illusion of a rough texture though it is simply a black vinyl car wrap. She added an extra touch to the wrap with pink trim on the wheels, front grill and car handles.
Most celebrities go for a solid color but others look for a more interesting print that is rare to see on the road. Professional football player, Mario Balotelli at one point wrapped his Bentley Continental GT in a printed army camouflage made out of vinyl car wrap.
The look was an army green color accented with brown and black spots to create a military camouflage design. Celebrity car wraps are part of a growing trend of customized personal cars that range from subtle matte finishes to wild prints that draw plenty of attention while driving around. Car wraps are a good way for celebrities to try a custom look that they can eventually change without losing the high value of their vehicle.
