Chrome finishes may not be as stylish as its matte counterpart, but for the most part, the former has a way of catching our attention - for better or worse. Some cars dressed in this outlandish and shiny garb are nothing more than puke-inducing examples of how too much of something can really go awry. But on the rare occasion that a chrome finish works on a car, it’s really a sight to behold.
Tintek.cz, a Czech company that specializes in wrapping sports cars have come out with their latest project: a chrome vinyl-wrapped Chevrolet Camaro SS. If we had a dollar for every time we said that the body finish on this car looks amazing, we’d be rich folks by the end of the day. This specific application is priced at $10,000 and is a brand new technology that is only available from a small number of companies at this time. Tintek says they have been developing ways to make the application process easier, but state that it is still a very difficult process even with their experienced technicians. The full application takes 4-5 days (with four technicians on the project) and they are currently working on expanding their color chrome options. As of right now, there are eight chrome colors available: silver, gold, blue, black, orange, green, red, and violet.
The work done on the Camaro SS was limited to just the chrome finish, which means that the powertrain - a 6.2-liter V8 engine with 400 horsepower and 395 lb/ft of torque - remains the same. But even if there’s very little done on the car apart from the chrome vinyl wrapping, we’d still gladly take this attention-grabbing Camaro SS home with us.
Can you say ’Silver Bullet’?
