Well, to be honest, this 90s color change thing isn't really my thing at all. I myself am originally a trained painter and this trend was just emerging during my training. Every Opel Corsa, VW Golf or Ford Focus should get a flip-flop color change paint job at the end of the 90s and that's probably why I'm so sick of it. But slowly but surely, the current vehicles are convincing me in the form of a McLaren P1 MSO, one VW Scirocco or even from this BMW 5er again from the opposite. The seemingly new flare trend looks quite consistent and interesting on some vehicles and does not seem as cheesy as it used to be the case. Even the last project of Metro Wrapz is no exception and fits in seamlessly. The 12C received a matt chameleon film (Avery ColorFlow) all around and was put on a set of OZ Racing alloy wheels in black. These two changes let the athlete shine in a completely new style and do not even look exaggerated, I think. What do you think? There isn't much more to say about the car so we'll leave it with the photo story for the time being. If we get more information about further modifications made to the 12C, there is of course, as always, an update for this post.

These are the changes to the McLaren 12C:

  • matte chameleon foliation (Avery ColorFlow) all around
  • OZ Racing alloy wheels in black
  • red calipers
  • possibly a performance increase - (chip tuning, tuning box, compressor or turbo conversion, NOS etc. - more information is not available)
  • possibly a sports exhaust system (more information is not available)

What is a flip-flop finish?

  • Flop, more rarely flip-flop, is the change in the coloristic properties of a material depending on the viewing angle
  • if the color changes due to the lightness, it is a lightness flop, if (additionally / exclusively) the hue changes, it is a hue flop.
