The velvet car trend is picking up momentum, and now there are whole companies devoted to it.
It seems that the trend of wrapping cars in velvet is now here to stay, and specially made wraps are now being manufactured specifically for automotive use. This means it resists the rain, UV, mud and bird shit which would ruin regular velvet, although the reactions we’ve seen to some velvet wrapped cars suggest that there are those out there who would love to see these ruined. Indeed, this is one of the weirder trends we’ve seen, and it has attracted its share of hate.
But companies like Velvet Cars (who make house calls, just so you know) have sprung up, and here we see them hard at work covering a Mercedes-Benz CLS 350.
