Now this is the A8 that I want!!!!

Supposedly it owned by the family of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahya, the former president of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Abu-Dhabi.  It is not chrome or silver paint, it is actual silver!! 8O


If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

They actually polished the alu body panels and clear coated then and then used a special chrome paint on all the plastic parts.

someone in Toronto completely chromed his BMW M3.
It is obviously not street legal, it gets trailored to many shows.


it's screaming for some clear corners and LED taillights.

I think it looks really cool, but if I can't keep my bathroom faucets spot free owning a chrome car would drive me nuts!
It better have a built-in Windex dispenser.

here are some photos of the chroming process:

yep, that A8 is actually polished aluminum, not silver.

I wonder why the M3 is considered not street legal...

Is there a law about being too shiny?

The pics came to me in an e-mail, I was just going by what it was "purportedly" saying.  Thank you for the correction.  


I agree with Winston, A highly waxed car would give off about as much reflection.

you know how if you're driving and your gf/wife uses the vaniety mirror to check hair, makeup, whatever when you are getting close to your destination...  I just have a silly picture in my head of some girl checking out how she looks as this car drives by.
