Every car owner would crave for individuality, from the cheap Tata Nano to the bank-account-wiping Bugatti Veyron . That’s why there are one-off special editions fetching top dollar just for its exclusivity. So much for individuality...
The owner of this Jaguar XKR-S didn’t feel satisfied just having one of the baddest production Jags ever. So the boys at Superior Automotive Design decided to redefine the word "exclusive" and, judging from the picture above, they have done a great job at it.
This metallic cat is wrapped in chrome, which according to S.A.D owner, Kris Lim, was a tough challenge, as heat doesn’t work on the material and neither does stretching the material, unlike other custom wraps. Nevertheless, since the decision to wrap the car in chrome was made already, they went about installing the wrap and finished the build in a fortnight. With careful attention to detail, the wrap is seamless in this example, and adds a bling factor to the reclusive kitty. In fact, Justin Bieber and his Fisker Karma are in awe of its blinginess.
A full chrome wrap is a little bit too cheesy, so, S.A.D decided to balance that out by adding black accents to certain elements of the car. With this addition, the XKR-S is a perfect combination of bling and wickedness, an aspect expected if your team is into car customization.
With already 550 horses powering this Jag, S.A.D decided to leave the powertrain alone since Jaguar themselves have done a great job at it. So, no harm done here...
Overall, we think this build looks absolutely fantastic, though we aren’t huge fans of chrome wrap. We think it’s the black accents that make it stand out among the rest of the chrome-wrapped cars. Nice touch, S.A.D.
