    Don't tell me you're just seeing that?

    That was news first back in the late 90's I think. Maybe not that far back, but it's been several years.

    The details are pretty interesting, if you can find them.

    BTW, I think the story with the legend said it was Silver plated which it's not. It's polished aluminum though.

    It's some guy from Dubai of course. I found the company that did the work, it's MTM who is on Germany but I can't find a way to get to the car with details.

    They did some kind of special polish treatment of the alum. body for the mirror finish. Still not a cheap job, but then again, it's Dubai, the richest little country in the world.

    That's actually a chrome paint.

    That's a better look at the paint. It's not cheap, and I'm sure it's a ROYAL pain to spray properly.

    The URL is an image, and doesn't appear to be anything about the car, unless it's there somewhere and I can't find it. :p

    Well it appears it's both.

    The body is polished aluminum, but the plastic bumpers, mirrors, etc. are chrome painted like the M3 above.

    I've seen the paint in person on a Mercedes at the SEMA show.
