Dodge Conversion Van

Do you want a Dodge but can’t afford it just yet? This person did too. It was a good thing that they were creative because they made their dreams come true… kind of. Who would have thought that you can get a Dodge by giving your conversion van this makeover? Save your money and simply learn how to use an airbrush like he did.

Alligator On A Truck

This photo was snapped in Gurnee, Illinois. How awesome is this pick-up truck that has an alligator tailgate wrap? If you think that there is snow in the background, that might be because there is. The gator is probably going to be happier in Florida or Louisiana since it can swim without a jacket on!

Surf’s Up, Bro

Now, this is one wrap that would appeal to most people. We can’t think of anyone who would not love to ride this cab all the time. Wait we’d give to take it out for a ride. Surf’s up!

Going Incognito

Is this a Ford Explorer or Edge? When prototypes are brought out on a test drive, it is not unusual for them to go undercover. Industry designers create custom wraps that look like other things such as microbes or peanuts.

The Spirit Of The Games

London taxi cabs showed the Olympic spirit when the capital of the United Kingdom hosted the Olympic Games in 2012. This car wrap definitely had us snigger. We are sure this guy has a great sense of humor.

Catching A Few Waves

This car wrap makes it easy to catch some waves. They only need to roll down the windows if they want to enjoy the breeze and catch a few waves on the road. There is no need to head down the beach if you have this! At any rate, you can always go to the shore in this car if you want to hit the actual waves.

A Psychedelic Trip

If you look closely, you are going to realize that this is a Dodge Durango beneath the psychedelic car wrap. We just hope that they do not ever use this pattern apart from a prototype test drive. We honestly cannot see it making plenty of sales.

Tiger On A Bus

There is a marketing firm in Perth, Australia called “The Brand Agency.” When it makes a wrap, they do not hold back at all. Take a look at the one they made for the Perth Zoo. We have to say that this is one fierce-looking tiger. We are sure that people get nervous when they see this!

“The Fastest Express Service”

Do you see why the DHL is so relevant and clever? The commercial wrap was a play on the company tag line: “The Fastest Express Service.” We are sure that people kept doing a double take whenever they spot the van beside them at the stoplight.

Pulls No Punches

In the Netherlands, you probably need to have a thick skin if you want to join the weight watchers. The wrap was used by an advertising agency called Lowe. The company did not hold back when they worked on this. We are so glad that someone took a photo so that we can all enjoy it.

Starry Night

Here is yet another automaker that uses lines and colors to hide a car. If you stare at it for a long period of time, you will come to the realization that it is a Mini Cooper. The people who spotted the test pattern has compared it to Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

On The Hood

We love the concept behind this car wrap. There is Bob Ross, one of our favorite artists, on the hood! We can’t help but wonder about the creative process behind this one. At any rate, we love it.

The Party Man

Here is another camo pattern used for a prototype. If you can’t recognize what car it is, we will have you know that it is the 2016 Range Rover Evoque Convertible. We absolutely adore the party man motif.

Street Cred

Is there anything that Speed Pro Imaging can’t do? It can deliver everything you need from car wraps to wall graphics. Here is proof that they will treat smart cars well. We do not know why there was any need for a car wrap, but it adds a fair amount of street cred.

Going All Out

The person behind this pulled out all the stops. The Nissan Commercial van was given a full body wrap that impressed us with its solid visuals. We now know what is truly inside these things. It definitely has plenty of space to spare!

A Slasher Movie Fan’s Dream

The Range Rover was given a car wrap that slasher movie fans would definitely adore. The red blood swipes and splatters are great! However, our favorite part might be the letters on the hood that look like they were written by someone in desperate need of help. Who do you think owns it? Maybe this is the car driven by Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees, or Freddie Krueger…

Hemi Inside

We are sure that you want to know what sort of engine this car uses. The answer would be a Hemi. This person clearly wanted nothing less than the best for this “car” of theirs.

Rust-Covered Van

Only three days after wrapping the Volkswagen Transporter in “rust,” he was pulled over by the police. This guy had to explain that he picked this design so that thieves would not go after his car. We are glad that the cops laughed it off. How awesome is this realistic wrap? They had to get the exact dimensions of the car to make it look like this. The rust was placed strategically so that it looked like water was dripping along the seams and the ridge lines of the van.

Fun Wrap

It is clear that Progressive Insurance has a lot of fun with the drivers at the training center. Recruits have to drive trucks like this one, which comes with various fun wraps. Honestly, we would love to apply, if only to take them out for a ride.

Coolest Sponsored Taxi

Man, how awesome is the commercial wrap in this photo? This is a taxi sponsored by Visa, and it might be the coolest thing on the planet. Take a good look at this photo because you will find something amazing going on in the background. Do you see the two guys on the rail holding onto the lamp post? There are more people doing the exact same thing as well. Does anyone have any clue at all about why they went with this concept?

A General Lee

If you have an old van from the ‘60s or ‘70s that you do not know what to do with, you might want to try this. Here is the idea. Use a General Lee theme for your Westfalia, Volkswagen, or what-have-you. You will need to muster up all your courage because it is a fine line between nostalgia and redneck.

One Clever Wrap

This Russian bank hired the best people for the job. What a clever car wrap. Maybe the SWAT team is hiding inside when the photo was taken. If you plan to rob this vehicle, you should probably pick a different one instead.

A High End Wrap

Skinz is a company known for making custom car decorations. It does a great job of making wraps for commercial vehicles. We want you to check out this Tesla. You can probably understand why people go there when they want high-end wraps. Feel free to go with something matte chrome, a fire theme, or whatever it is that your heart desires.

A Sneak Peek

It is always interesting to see peel away car wraps. This feels like a sneak peek into the inside. It turns out that a cartoon gorilla on steroids and growth hormones is all that it takes to complete the mission.

Blurry Vision

If you are looking for clever bus wraps, you should check out Grey Advertising. Below, you can see a public bus in China that uses a wrap created by the company. We are sure that you feel like your vision blurs when you check it out. That makes sense because it is an ad for anti-fatigue contact lenses. Neat.

Cash For Miles

You are probably aware that you can earn extra money by driving around town. Many companies are willing to pay people to drive cars that have advertisements of their products and services. The themed car below has Levi’s advertisements. Apparently, the driver makes a decent amount of money for this!

A Toothy Grin

What a great idea. We normally see this on a B-29 or B-52 World War Two fighter or bomber jet. The clever car wrap makes this vehicle look as mean as the incredible aircraft from a long time ago.

The Smike

Folks, this is a Smike or a Smart Car Bike. We are truly impressed by the way smart car wraps evolved in the past. The one below is one example of many amazing designs. For the sake of comparison, we will have you know that a BMW bike and a smart car have similar gas mileage.

Too Much Fun

We are sure that you have noticed airbrushed t-shirts stands on the beachside. This car wrap reminds us of those things! The artist probably worked on t-shirts before designing vehicle wraps. The car looks like it is a lot of fun. You will probably catch bugs using that tongue as well!

“Infinity Puzzle”

Beneath the dizzying camo car wrap is a Renault Clio. The pattern goes by the name “infinity puzzle” and is most suitable for people 21 years old and above. It is not a good idea to look at this one for too long!

Yes Can Do

If you are thinking of getting your car a vehicle wrap, this company is your best bet. Do you want us to convince you some more? Apparently, the car wrap comes with a blonde driver free of charge.

Shaggin’ Wagon

Do you want to hear why the car owner picked this wrap? We are sorry but we do not know the reason either. However, what we can tell you is that this is a Shaggin’ Wagon!

Super Cool

Unlike the other entries on this slideshow, the car wrap on this BMW is not going to make you laugh. Despite this, we included this simply because it looked cool. We would love to have a car like this one!

Car wraps became big in 2016. Since then, they have evolved in an impressive manner. Companies offer texture patterns, chromes, and mattes, so you will have no issue looking for something that will suit you.

The Ultimate Allegory

Would you do the same thing if you have a Lotus Elite super car? With its white and yellow stripes, this vehicle looks like a Bengal tiger! This is a representation of the way the best of the jungle meets its urban counterpart. Is this really a car wrap or a real-life allegory?

Coffee Lovers

According to its website, The Challenge is the most prestigious and popular supercar rally in Holland. The company worked on a car wrap that was made with the intention of bagging the “Most Weird” title. The award comes with a cash payout, so they put in a lot of effort. The contestants covered 30% of a Porsche 911 with the use of coffee beans. The rest was wrapped to give it a burlap coffee bag effect.

A Showstopper

If you are planning to get a car wrap in matte black, you should follow in the footsteps of this car owner. The smoke and The Godfather character worked well with the matte finish. What a classy and epic showstopper that no one will ever want to mess with!

Stay Away From Drugs

The photo below shows that there are actually mediocre car wraps out there. We have no idea why the owner of the sports car thought that this was a good idea. The only thing we have to say is that you should steer clear of drugs. Otherwise, you might end up doing this to your precious car!

Black And White

There are times when the best way to deliver a message is by doing it in black and white. The high-end sports car has an impressive wrap that did this. We love the addition of blue and orange for a little color. However, we think that the black and white image took it to a whole new level altogether.

Radical Camouflage

Take a look at this prototype for the 2016 lineup. Here is the Mazda CX 9 on a test drive. We are sure that no one would have recognized it lie this. The radical camo used by the manufacturers also worked as an advertisement. They did not try to hide the true nature of this vehicle.

Untuned Television Snow

Did you think that this is a military vehicle on night ops or wet work? This is incorrect, but you are far from being the only person to think this. Land Rover picked this camo wrap for the Discovery Sport Edition when it was taken out on a test drive. The pattern seemed military to most people. In reality, it was supposed to look like untuned TV snow.

Pure Awesome

We did not think that it is possible to hide a Lamborghini Aventador with a vehicle wrap. We have no clue if this was a prototype camo wrap or the personal pick of the owner, but it is awesome!

Revealing Features

There are times when car wraps draw attention and reveal features instead. This one is a great example of this. It makes the Land Rover the star of the show and shows off its three rows of seats.

The owner of the Maserati Gran Turismo Sport clearly wanted to take it to the next level. How awesome is this Nebula car wrap? It is not only cool and classy, but it will also make you feel like you are in space!

Nyanborghini Purracan

There is a sad story about the vehicle wrap in the photo. Joe Zimmerman, the frontman of Deadmau5, bought this Lamborghini Huracan and got a meme car wrap for it. He called it Nyanborghini Purracan, although the automaker served him a cease and desist letter. The musician had to sell his car in the end.

‘90s Psychedelic Poster Art

Mind you, Honda also uses camo car wraps when they take out the cars on a test drive. We wonder where they got this idea from, however. Maybe they were very into psychedelic posters from the ‘90s.

A Great Marketing Campaign

This was not an effort to ward off snow blindness on the road. Despite this, it might just be the best marketing campaign that we have ever seen. We do not think the Nissan GT-R looked this great in black and white ever before. Athletes showing off aerial maneuvers only made it look even cooler.

Rusty And Refined

The rusty BMW in the photo is owned by a musician called Zachonthat. In order to make this wrap, they had to use real rust in the film to make it look authentic. In the end, this was a great decision. On top of that, the musician can always take it off if he wants to take the BMW i8 to its natural look.

No Sneak Attacks

Jungle cats know how to sneak up on others like nothing else. Even so, it is impossible to sneak up on the Jaguar XJ in the photo. The black and white swirls are not going to let it happen, but this is still cool!

Best Use Of A Wrap Award

Do you like the idea of a hang ten as you make your way across the urban jungle? You should look for these folks and throw a party! If you ask us, we know who deserves the award for the best use of a vehicle wrap on an import.

Watermelon

What else is there to say about the vehicle below aside from, ‘It’s a watermelon…’ Honestly, this does not make any sense. We have no idea what the owner had been thinking. This person must be the biggest watermelon fan out there. Why else would you wrap your Bentley like this?

Turtle

The photo below shows a person who did not just wrap their car to look like a turtle but also went the extra mile. They decided to alter the car so that the shape would resemble the animal as well. Aside from ‘Why?’ we want to tell this person ‘A for effort.’

Wild Child

Everyone knows that leopard print just says ‘wild child.’ If you wanted to take it up a notch, you should get it in pink and blue as well. The person who owned this was trying to show off their personality with their car. If you ask us, it worked very well.

Smells Like Bacon

Bacon is probably one of the most popular food items in the United States. Most people love it, but this person loves it more than all of us. After all, not everyone can say that they wrapped their car in bacon. Do you think the vehicle smells like bacon too?

Louis Vuitton

Apart from the fact that he used a Louis Vuitton pattern on his BMW, the owner also chose a license plate that read ‘HATER.’ This might not be our type, but this car sure has a lot of personality.

Look Out

Many people jaywalk, but this is a great way to tell people why they should not do it. This was quite graphic since the bus shows a man who was hit by a vehicle. We have to admit that this looks effective!

No Need

You do not need to open the door in order to find the mistake here. It is the wrap itself! We doubt that the person who got it put a lot of thought into the process. The only time that we will say that it is a good idea would be if there were no doors to open.

Here is a bad example of a door wrap. It was done by Starbucks! We don’t know why they came up with this. The designer might like self-deprecating jokes, but we can tell that it was not done intentionally.

Habitat For Humanity

How ironic is that? The van has a great Habitat for Humanity ad on it. Sadly, it sends a terrible message when you open the door. We are sure that the values of the organization do not align with this.

When you are on the highway, you are probably not dreaming of the snack that you would like to eat as soon as you get home. However, this is no longer going to be the case when you see this huge Mars bar.

No Smoking

Here is a subtle reminder that drivers that any heat source needs to stay far away from this truck. After all, it is going to start smoking when the truck is too close to one. This is a great design in our books.

Man, who could have looked at a truck like this one and said, ‘This needs an extra something’? At any rate, they aced it. They decided to advertise yummy asparagus using the blank space, and it worked very well. Good for them!
