Like the banner says 'one of a kind'

If the dealer sourced some turbo twists and peeled off the vinyl he'd sell it much easier.. I don't think it's an unpleasant colour myself

Does anyone else get suspect about a car being sold with a wrap, or is it just me?

Um, wow. Looks like someone's trying to wheeler-deal this car. It might sell with stock rims and all the stupid matt black (why matt?) vinyl removed. Dont know

I think Dolly Parton's self-deprecating quote sums it up best "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap!"
