Tata Safari Storme

If you have a large SUV, it’s best that you choose a subtle wrap. Matte wraps work great on an SUV, but loud colours just makes the vehicle look obnoxious. One example is this wrapped Safari Storme. Even black contrast wraps don’t do much to hide the sheer expanse of the full wrap’s yellow-ness.

Honda Civic

Modster's Honda Civic 5

This Civic from Modster’s gets a glossy gold paint job topped off with a carbon fiber vinyl wrap. It’s the wrap that manages to make the Civic look classy rather than crass. This shows how an otherwise loud paint job can be nicely tempered with a wrap.

Not every car can carry off a chrome wrap. Chrome wraps look cool on a very fast car, but on a no-nonsense commuter such as the Hyundai Grand i10, they just look out of place. And even adding a contrast black wrap on certain parts won’t do much to make the car look subtler.

The Vento is one car that can carry off the matte wrap very well. Here’s one such example. Matte grey sits well with both fast and slow cars. While it looks great on sedans, it’s particularly effective on rough-and-tough SUVs, as as addition to the don’t-mess-with-me look. Image: Team-BHP

Porsche 911

Porsche 911 Rust Wrap 1

Now, who’d imagine that the country’s first rust wrap will sit on a Porsche 911. While some enthusiasts will appreciate the rust wrap, most others may simply find it out of place. While it’s one thing to have such a wrap on a vintage, a spanking new Porsche 911 may not be best car to carry a rust wrap.
