• NWAS takes the Ferrari 430 Scuderia from light blue to matte black in three minutes

One of the best things about owning a supercar is the opportunity to turn your spanking ride into a matte finished hyperbeast. Sure, just about any car can be dressed up in matte, but a regular car with a matte finish doesn’t hold the same ring to as seeing a Ferrari 430 Scuderia in the same dress up. That’s why we always get giddy whenever we see a supercar like Ferrari get wrapped in matte black right before our very eyes.

The people at Northwest Auto Salon did just that, recording a complete matte black transformation of a 430 Scuderia in a time-lapse video for our viewing pleasure. The light blue paint finish already looks awesome on the 430 Scuderia, but the Awesome Scale was ratcheted up to new levels after NWAS recorded the whole process of wrapping up the 430 in matte black.

Using a Canon 1DS MKII, NWAS recorded the whole transformation and with the power of state-of-the-art editing, compressed the whole event in just over three minutes.

From the light blue paint finish, the 430 Scuderia was transformed using a full body matte black wrap, matte yellow stripes with gloss yellow borders, yellow pin stripes on the wheels, and yellow mirrors.

A must-watch for you matte lovers out there!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Awesome piece of machinery, but lose the paint job. I do not want this ride pimped

I never got the point of this type of spam advertisement. Do they actually get customers this way? Does anyone actually read this garbage and click on the links? Seriously.

There isn’t a single area of the car that hasn’t been enhanced in some small way, and there are some parts that have been upgraded in big ways.

And we’re mesmerized by the brilliant combination of E-diff electronic differential and the electronic stability system.

124 mph? Its just a a normal speed though. No wonder only few comments for this car.

agree, I guess they are using a high grade nylon. heat, corrosion, and water resistant, But i wonder how much does it cost to cover a single door of a bugatti veyron.

It is a fully programmable system. The exhaust headers are compatible with the original system and also available for the normal 430.
