Swiss artist Fabian Oefner gave one of Ferrari’s new convertibles a “paint job” to give us a vivid visualization of its speed. As the wind tunnel blew at a speed of up to 150 miles per hour, the paint flowed across the sleek surface of the convertible, creating multiple glowing streaks and splashes.

Unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Toyota’s i-ROAD is an ultra-compact vehicle with the flexibility and convenience of a motorcycle and the comfort and stability of a car, offering a unique driving experience. It’s powered entirely by electricity, making it environmentally friendly with zero emissions and low running noise.

Designed for traveling short distances within urban spaces and able to seat two people, one behind the other, the i-ROAD would be ideal for Tokyo’s narrow streets and crammed parking lots.

Trends in Car Color

5.11.2012 @ MSN

Rosso Corsa, Dozer Clear Coat, Stinger Yellow, Peridot Green Metallic, Grabber Blue, Starfire Pearl, Ultimate Black Metallic, Sandy Beach Metallic …
