It's like painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa. There's a sweet 458 Ferrari under all that wrapping.

Great picture and car. I can live without the paint job.

I'm sure it's just a vinyl "wrap". At least I hope it is.

Fortunately the "paint" is actually a nylon wrap and can be removed - the owner says it will soon be returned to it's original configuration.

If that was the only way I could drive a Ferrari, I wouldn't.

Having money obviously does not buy taste.

I wouldn't be surprised the owner actually got paid for the ad this wrap represents ... wouldn't be the first one to 'finance' an exotic like this.

I sure hope the guys who wrapped it didn't use a cutter around the edges ... I've seen a stunning BMW X5 that had a protective wrap ... all around the edges they used an X-Acto knife ... tears came to my eyes :oops: ... massive lawsuit as you might expect.

Actually, the wrap was done for a charitable event - the Ferrari Owners Group raised something like $120,000 for the Blue Planet Network. I'd say the owner has "taste" down in spades.

You have to admit it gets one's attention. I knew nothing of Blue Planet nor the FOG. Now I do.

That's how you have the advertising budget buy you a 458 and write it off in taxes.


Feel free to use any photo's that I post for any purpose that I don't find offensive. I'd be honored to find my pics used on that world wide web thingy....

From the title I thought this would be a Porsche Panamera.

What's wring with the panamera? If I had the money, I'd buy the white panamera hybrid... I drool every time I see one!

Keep in mind that the ferrari's wrap is doing what it was intended to do. Get the word out there about the cause. Somebody took a photo of it and now (as of now) there are 415 views on this thread who have seen it too!

What they should have done........was to buy truck......and outfit it with water-filtration dispensary factory built on to it...and then painted it all like this... which would make actual sense, and probably get better gas mileage. They even took the badge off the hood :(
