"The Host" in real life

I was looking up chrome cars online after watching "The Host", because I was impressed by their chrome wrapped Evoras, and I was not disappointed.

Chrome wrapped Karma Fisker everybody.

Garage List
Canadians, bunch of self promoters.

Does nothing for me, just seems like a gimmick. There are a lot of cars wrapped locally with a chrome base and ads over it. Now make it gold and bedazzle it and I'm on board!

Just yesterday, I saw an identical one driven by a mid age Asian lady. It looked "weird" to me.

There are a couple of gold cars floating around out there too, and I'm sure we've seen the diamond-covered SL. Here's an M5 (gold wrap):



This 911 is covered completely in 18 karat gold. There are a few nicer cars which have received this treatment (that one Veyron, an R8, a couple of AMG Mercedes and Ferraris) but this one stands out due to engraving and tooling on the plate:

I think only a BMW can pull of gold wraps. It looks bad on most other brands, IMO.
