    a PURE silver Audi A8...

    Got these pics from a friend. Apparently the car was made out of pure silver for a Sheik. Don't know if it's true or if it's just all chrome......






    Re: a PURE silver Audi A8...

    this is an old pic, most german manufacturers offer this service. Its an expensive chrome paint job, nothin special.

    ive seen pics of an m3 , Sclass, 7 series as well

    Re: a PURE silver Audi A8...

    I thought it was polished aluminum (A8's are made of Al)

    Re: a PURE silver Audi A8...

    MTM did the car and on their website it says that the car was striped of its paint and then polished and clearcoated. The plastic bumpers were removed and replaced with metal ones to complete the look. It is polished aluminium.

    Looks fantastic though and with MTM's supercharger for the A8 could have 600+ bhp!!

    Re: a PURE silver Audi A8...

    There is a way to use silver-based paint on cars, which happens to be a very complex and expensive job!

    Mercedes had a calender series with silver-coloured vehicles, unlike the above mentioned procedure they used very thin aluminum sheets to cover the parts - just for the photoshoot!

    Must be crap on sunny days for the other driver on the road. The sun most reflect off that BIGTIME..

    Re: a PURE silver Audi A8...

    This car is also for sale for anyone interested. I was in Munich last week and the latest Auto Motor Sport had this vehicle in its classifieds at the back with the same picture posted, pic 2.
