No offense to your girlfriend but God damnit, this thing does more impressive things in the dark than my girlfriend. I guess I should just speak for myself.
[The Aston Martin DBS] belongs to Team46 who used it to compete in this year’s Gumball 3000 rally. It’s unique UV coating works like any other phosphorescent object – it uses sunlight to “charge” during the day, then glows like a car possessed when it’s dark. The material emits light up to 10 hours after the car has been exposed to the sun, meaning it’s always shining bright.
The owner, David Morgan, said:
“Personally, I wanted a car that would stand out among the collection of supercars and what better way to do it than make it glow? Hamish Scott rose to the challenge and the car will definitely turn heads around the globe.
It is positively mind-blowing and feels like touching glass, smoother than regular car paint, whilst aesthetically something futuristic and completely out of this world – it is spectacular, day or night.”
But, but, my Corolla has power windows and ice cold air conditioning! Anyone??
