No offense to all the beautiful women out there, but this badass car does more impressive things in the dark than any girl out there. Well maybe not “every” girl out there (my wife is pretty awesome when the sun sets), but you get my point.
[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.”
And you thought your power windows and ice cold air conditioning in your new Civic was cool….
