We here at Automobile Magazine love automotive experimentation, and we’ll never shy away from putting a dash of color on our cars, but there are times when we’re left scratching our heads at a custom car. After seeing photos of this green chrome BMW 5 Series surface on the internet, we agreed that this is definitely one of those times.
The images were posted to Bimmerpost and show what was once an Alpine White BMW 5 Series sporting a seriously green hue. According to the captions, the car is actually wearing two different vinyl wraps: one in chrome effect, the other a translucent green. Remarkably (but not surprisingly), the wrap extends to nearly everything, from the plastic bumper cover to the metal body panels and the added aerodynamic kit by Hamann and AC Schnitzer.
We should say now that it’s not the first time we’ve seen a green chrome car–Chevrolet famously painted on of its Camaros in SpectraFlame green chrome for this year’s SEMA show–but it is still one of the craziest things we’ve seen in a while. And no, we’re not entirely sure if crazy means good.
In any case, check out the photos and let us know what you think: are you green with envy, or are you turning green with nausea? Have you seen a worse paint job elsewhere? Let us know in the comments below.
