Who says you need a lot of cash to get yourself a dodge? Clearly, you just need an airbrush to create an epic masterpiece!

Alligator On A Truck

This photo of a pick-up truck with an alligator tailgate wrap was taken in Gurnee, Illinois. If you’re wondering if that’s snow you see in the background, well it is. This gator should probably consider moving back to Louisiana or Florida, where it won’t need a jacket in order to go swimming.

Going Incognito

Is that a Ford Edge or Explorer? When prototypes are taken out for a test drive, the usual thing they do is to go incognito. Top industry designers custom make wraps that resemble things, such as peanuts or microbes.

The Spirit Of The Games

Even London taxi cabs demonstrated the spirit of the Games when the city hosted the Olympics in 2012. This is some funny car wrap.

Catching A Few Waves

This awesome vehicle wrap makes catching a few waves pretty easy. By just letting the windows down, you can enjoy the cool breeze as you catch waves while on the road – no need to go to the beach. However, if you really want to, you can take the car to the beach. It makes for a fun, albeit redundant, play on the whole theme!

A Psychedelic Trip

Look closely. Yes, that is the “Dodge Durango” you see hiding under the psychedelic patterned car wrap. Hopefully, they won’t think of using this pattern after a prototype test drive. We just don’t see it generating many sales long term!

Tiger On A Bus

Let’s just say that when “The Brand Agency” (a marketing firm based in Perth, Australia) designs a wrap, they pull out all the stops. This one was designed to create buzz for the Perth Zoo. Don’t you think that tiger looks really fierce? It probably makes a lot of people nervous!

“The Fastest Express Service”

This is how DHL gets clever and relevant. This commercial wrap is clearly a play on tag line of the company – “The Fastest Express Service.” We wonder how many people made a double take at a stoplight upon seeing this van pull up next to them!

Pulls No Punches

Wow, it seems that in the Netherlands, you have to be thick skinned to join the local weight watchers chapter. This wrap that the Lowe advertising agency designed definitely pulls no punches. It’s way too funny not to share with the general internet public. Enjoy!

Starry Night

Another auto maker that is using colors and lines to hide their car. Looking at it long enough will make you realize it is the Mini Cooper that is hiding underneath. A lot of those who have seen this liken this test pattern to Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh.

On The Hood

The Party Man

Yet another distinctive camo pattern for a new car prototype. This is the 2016 Range Rover Evoque Convertible. We don’t know about you but we think the best part here is the party man car motif!

Street Cred

Speed Pro Imaging does it all – from banners to wall graphics to car wraps. This photo is proof that they even do Smart Cars. We aren’t quite sure why this car wrap was needed, but it does give this particular Smart Car a tiny bit of bad ass street cred.

Going All Out

Whoever is responsible for this truly went all out. This Nissan Commercial van’s full custom body wrap definitely delivers when it comes to solid visuals! Now we know what’s really inside one of these things – a lot of space!

A Slasher Movie Fan’s Dream

This Range Rover has a car wrap that any slasher movie fan will surely die for! Decked out in red blood splatters and swipes, the car even comes with letters on its hood which look like they have been slid across in desperation. Freddie, Jason Vorhees, Michael Myers, or Samara from the Ring… any of these “people” could be the owner.

Rust-Covered Van

Just three days of the owner wrapping this Volkswagen Transporter van in “rust,” police pulled them over. However, the owner explained that they did this to protect their vehicle from theft and the authorities just laughed. This great piece of realism was achieved by getting the exact measurements of the vehicle for the wrap. The rust is very much strategically placed as it looks like water had dripped along the ridge lines and seams of this van.

Fun Wrap

Progressive Insurance has some fun with their training center drivers. Recruits drive trucks, such as this one, with different fun wraps on the doors. Doesn’t it kind of make you want to apply just to see how much fun they have?

Coolest Sponsored Taxi

Okay, we do agree that this commercial wrap photo is awesome. This Visa sponsored taxi might just be the coolest we have ever seen, but if you look at this picture carefully, there is something going on in the background that makes this snapshot pretty amazing. There are two guys standing on the rail whilst holding on to a lamp post, and there are others like them doing the same thing! We wonder why those people felt the need to do this…

A General Lee

Do you have an old Volkswagen, Westfalia, or other ‘60s or ‘70s vans lying around and you don’t know what to do with them? Well, here’s an idea – theme your vehicle out with a General Lee. Walking the line between redneck and nostalgia needs a lot of courage, and these folks did quite a fine job!

One Clever Wrap

This Russian Bank definitely hired the right guys. This is one clever vehicle wrap! Who knows? The swat team we see could be inside! If you have plans to rob this bank, perhaps you should consider choosing another one instead.

A High End Wrap

Known for theming out all kinds of vehicles, Skinz does create incredible commercial vehicle wraps. Just look at this Tesla. You will understand why they are many people’s go-to place for high end wraps. There are a lot you can choose from. You can go with a fire theme, matte chrome, or anything else that your mind can think up!

A Sneak Peek

Peel away car wraps are always really interesting. It’s like a sneak peek into what’s inside. Apparently, it just takes one strong cartoon gorilla whose diet includes growth hormones and steroids to get the job done.

Blurry Vision

Need some clever commercial bus wrap? Don’t worry, Grey Advertising has got you covered. This public bus in China has a wrap that was made by the company. It does make you feel like your vision is getting blurry when you look at it. This is actually an ad for some anti-fatigue contact lenses, nice!

Cash For Miles

Did you know that you could make extra cash as you drive around town? There are companies that will pay you to drive cars with advertisements of goods and services. This themed car advertises for Levi’s and the driver gets paid as well!

A Toothy Grin

Isn’t this an awesome idea? Normally we would see this on a B-52 or B-29 WWII bomber or a fighter jet. This brilliant vehicle wrap makes this car looks just as mean with its WWII period signature toothy grin!?

The Smike

Yes, you are looking at a Smike (Smart Car Bike)! Smart Car wraps have truly evolved over the years, and this one is just an example. For comparison’s sake, a smart car and a BMW bike probably get roughly the same gas mileage.

Too Much Fun

Ever noticed the beachside stands that sell airbrushed t-shirts? Doesn’t this car wrap remind you of one? The artist probably graduated from t-shirts to vehicle wraps. This car does look like it would be fun to drive, and you could catch plenty of bugs with that tongue.

“Infinity Puzzle”

That is the Renault Clio hiding under a dizzying camouflage vehicle wrap. This pattern is called “infinity puzzle” – best suited for 21 years old and over. Stare at this Renault long enough and who knows what you will see!

Car wraps started becoming a trend in 2016 and have since evolved. They not encompass mattes, texture patterns and chrome. Car enthusiasts can show off their vehicle, imagination and attitude this way.

The Ultimate Allegory

If you had your own Lotus Elite super car, would you do this? Themed out in yellow and white stripes, this car looks like a real Bengal tiger. The beast of the jungle meets the road; the ultimate allegory comes to life through this car wrap!

Coffee Lovers

According to their website, The Challenge is Holland’s most well-known and prestigious supercar-rally. This car wrap was created with the goal of snagging the “Most Weird” title or some other moniker which is worthy of a cash payout. These contestants used coffee beans to cover 30% of their Porsche 911. The rest of the car was wrapped to make it look like a burlap coffee bag.

A Showstopper

Planning to get a matte black car wrap? Then, take a page from this car’s owner. The matte finish perfectly complements the Godfather character and smoke. The result is an epic, classy, and notorious showstopper you do not want to mess with.

Stay Away From Drugs

This photo only proves that a seedy underbelly of substandard car wraps does exist. We don’t know why anyone would do this to their sports car. Our advice to you is this: stay away from drugs. Otherwise, you might get some funny ideas in your head and decide to do this to your car.

Black And White

Sometimes, keeping a message black and white is the best thing to do. This high end sports car with an amazing vehicle wrap is a good example. There is a pop of orange and blue here and there. However, it is the black and white image that truly elevates this car from excellent to epic!

Radical Camouflage

A prototype for the line up in 2016, this Mazda CX 9 was on its first test drive. If you had seen it then, it was almost impossible to recognize. However, radical camouflage like this is used by car manufacturers as a form of advertising. They are not really trying to hide the vehicle’s true nature.

Untuned Television Snow

If you thought this is a military vehicle for wet work or night ops, you are wrong. However, you are not alone. When Land Rover used this camouflage wrap on their Discovery Sport Edition going out for a test drive, many people who saw it thought the pattern looked military. However, the pattern was actually meant to suggest untuned television snow.

Pure Awesome

A Lamborghini Aventador is pretty difficult to hide underneath any vehicle wrap. While we have no idea whether this is the creation of its owner or a prototype camouflage wrap, what we do know is it’s pure awesome!

Revealing Features

Sometimes car wraps reveal features as well as draw attention. Take this vehicle wrap as an example. It certainly draws attention to this Land Rover and reveals the vehicle’s seating capacity (three rows).

Nyanborghini Purracan

This vehicle wrap has a sad tale around it. Deadmau5 lead man Joe Zimmerman bought a Lamborghini Huracan and wrapped it with this popular meme. He then named this car Nyanborghini Purracan, but a cease and desist letter was issued by Lamborghini and he was forced to sell the beloved car.

‘90s Psychedelic Poster Art

Even Honda uses car camo wraps when they test their new vehicles. However, one has to wonder where this idea came from. Perhaps they are keen on 90s psychedelic poster art, or something like that.

A Great Marketing Campaign

No, this wasn’t an effort to combat snow blindness while driving. However, it is definitely among the greatest marketing campaigns that we’ve ever seen. The Nissan GT-R never looked this amazing in black and white. Athletes performing aerial maneuvers on the slopes definitely upped the coolness factor!

Rusty And Refined

The owner of this rusty BMW is musical artist Zachonthat. To create this wrap, real rust was used in the wrap film to give it an authentic look. The end result is truly stunning and can be removed easily should the musician want his BMW i8 back to its natural state.

No Sneak Attacks

Jungle cats are experts at sneak attacks, but this Jaguar XJ sneaking up on anything is impossible. There is no way that the black and white swirls on it will allow that. The car still looks epic, though.

Watermelon

There isn’t all that much to say about this car other than ‘It’s a watermelon…’. It doesn’t make any sense, really. There seems to be no reasoning behind it. The owner of this car must love watermelons and decided to wrap their Bentley into a cartoonish watermelon.

Turtle

Here we have someone who not only wrapped their car to resemble a turtle, they decided to go the extra mile. They added parts to the car in order to make it look like a turtle in its shape as well. Other than ‘why?’ all we can say is ‘A for effort’.

Wild Child

Ah, as you can see, leopard print truly screams ‘wild child’. Especially when it comes to vibrant blue and pink car wraps. Whoever owns this car must have wanted to make a serious statement about their personality so everyone would know the real them and how cool they are.

Smells Like Bacon

Bacon seems to be one of the most popular things in the United States these days. Well, this person probably loves bacon more than anyone. So much so that they felt the need to wrap their car in it! We wonder if the car smells like bacon…

Louis Vuitton

Aside from the fact that this driver decided to wrap their BMW in a Louis Vuitton pattern, they also made sure to complete the look they were going for with a ‘HATER’ license plate. Real classy, wouldn’t you say?

Look Out

Well, this is one way to warn people about the dangers of jaywalking… In a rather graphic approach, this bus has a wrap that depicts a man who got hit by it. It leaves little to the imagination if you ask us…

No Need

This door doesn’t need to be opened for you to spot the mistake that is this wrap… Whoever thought of this concept must not have thought it all the way through. In theory, if there was no door to be opened, this would be a great idea!

Another unfortunate door wrap was done by none other than Starbucks themselves. Who knows, maybe the designer enjoys self-deprecating jokes? All the same, we have a feeling this wasn’t done on purpose.

Oh, the irony. This van has a rather incredible ad for the Habitat for Humanity. And yet, when the door opens, it sends a rather ominous message that doesn’t quite line up with the organization’s standards and ideas.

This is just a subtle way to remind the drivers around that no heat source can go near the truck. If this truck does so happen to be too close to a heat source, it most definitely will start smoking. Get it?

This is a great way to have a minor heart attack while driving on the highway, wouldn’t you say? While it’s clear this isn’t real, at first glance, it might look it. If you ask us, it’s a rather unsettling idea to put on your car.
