15 Jul Sharpie Lamborghini is a Work of Art!
A normal Lamborghini equipped with its stock rims and gloss paint job is beautiful as it is, but the “Sharpie Lamborghini” takes the Lamborghini Gallardo takes the design to a whole new level. The owner of this 196 mPH piece of art is Brett David. Brett got the idea and figured it could be used as a promotional vehicle for his Lamborghini Miami dealership. So he contacted Jona Cerwinske, a local Miami graffiti artist. Brett originally thought to have Cerwinske just draw directly on the car, until he found out about Auto SuperShield.
Auto SuperShield started by tinting the windows with 3M color stable black carbon 20% VLT. Auto SuperShield then covered all painted surfaces with 3M Paint Protection Film to protect the painted surfaces from damage and to provide a clear canvas for the artist to draw on. So Jona Cerwinske could draw all over the car’s body without negatively affecting the car’s value. It took 2 weeks of hand drawing on the $240,000 canvas with common Sharpies to create this masterpiece.
Oddly enough, the art turned out to be such an attraction that the Lambo toured throughout the US and was featured on “SuperCars Exposed”, “Rides”, “The Bull Run”, “Not Sweet Sixteen”, on MTV and was viewed on YouTube over 3 Million times over a period of three years.
Even if you do not like the Gallardo, the finished artwork was incredible and our Auto SuperShield’s work was invisible. Patrons viewing the Gallardo didn’t know if the car was wrapped with a graphic film or hand-painted on the car’s actual surface.
It created a conversation wherever it went. After three years of promotion, due to weathering of the artwork, it was time to remove the Paint Protection Film (PPF). Underneath, the paint finish was perfect an the Gallardo went to a happy customer in 2010.
