You’d have thought that wrapping a sports car in today’s market would be a simple business, but it turns out that’s not the case.
Yianni from car customisation experts Yiannimize in the UK shows in this video how a wrap on a Ferrari 458 Speciale went wrong, with too many joins in the vinyl and rubber seals fitted the wrong way round.
The problem is that if you don’t get it done correctly then not only is the owner not going to be happy, but neither are Ferrari.
They have a say in all wraps made to their cars because they don’t want anything doing totally diabolical that damages their premium brand.
Yianni said: “The car wasn’t up to standard. The customer wasn’t happy. Ferrari wasn’t happy either.”
In the video, Yianni shows how the entire Ferrari is unwrapped bit by bit and then re-wrapped properly doing each panel and the wing mirrors in single laminate wraps without any joins.
The owner of the Ferrari also wanted a different racing stripe fitted so they did that too.
Yianni is known to have done customisation jobs for a string of celebrities including The Late Late Show host James Corden, Hell’s Kitchen star Gordon Ramsay, and magician Dynamo.
