Velvet-covered Porsche Panamera.

It’s no secret that i LOVE the Porsche Panamera.  I think it is simply the most epic looking sedan on the market today.  I know that many of you hate it…but I want one.  Pretty badly.

Now, having gotten that out of the way…this velvet-covered Panamera spotted in London is definitely one of the most bizarre finishes I have ever seen on a moving vehicle.   So………….is it possible to get one finished in Alcantara?

some information about the painting from Tom Miller Sports And Classics:

Joe Perricone has been painting since childhood and has been restoring vintage cars for over 35 years. Joe started painting cars when he had a desire to do 4 paintings of the Vanderbilt cup races and never looked back. He paints oil on canvas of cars of the 20’s and 30’s, mostly of races lost in time and long forgotten. The subject matter is of the pits, action in corners and break downs on the track. Joe’s work is in the collection of Hutchinson Co. and many other private collections, he has paintings hanging next to the great automotive painter Peter Helck amongst others. Joe’s work is an expressionist remembrance of the work done in the 1860’s through the 1890’s with abstract line for balance and perspective and a distinctive color palette.

Jaguar XK-R 75

Jaguar has been a pretty boring company for several years now, although lately it’s all been improving dramatically.  One of the significant problems is the current lack of identity, however.  Everytime i see a ‘new’ Jaguar sedan, it looks like a cross between an Audi A6 wannabe and a Jaguar.  What happened to the identity, lads!?

Anyways, the new XK-R 75 looks pretty damn slick.  530hp, 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, limited edition to celebrate 75 years of Jaguar.  Pretty interesting paint job going on as well…

site: The Brown Car Blog!

I’ve always had a soft spot for ‘brown’ cars….despite the ridicule of some of my friends who are also into cars, I find them to look very cool.  I feel the colour suits ‘machinery’ quite well.  Porsche knows what i’m talkin about!

Now i’ve found a blog devoted to brown car photos!  Fantastic!
