Trend Alert: Chrome Wrapped Cars are a Celeb Favourite

The latest trend to hit celebrity-land is chrome-plating. And we're not talking only grills and tyre rims here; we're talking about chrome wrapping the entire car - from fender to fender.

Apparerntly Flo Rida has a chrome wrapped $2.4 million Bugatti Veyron, and Justin Beiber was presented with a super-shiny version of the $110,000 Fisker Karma eco-car.
According to the Daily Beast, this penchant for owning such a shiny, expensive car has caught on like fire with the nouveaux riche, like pop stars, who want to flaunt their wealth. American custom car design firms like West Coast Customs sell it as the car paint job you get to 'separate yourself from the Average Joe'. After all, chrome wrapping a car costs anywhere between $20,000 - $60,000 (approx Rs 11 lakh to Rs 33 lakh).

Also popular are eye-watering loud car colours like metallic Smurf blue, Gatorade green and very, very bright pink. We know who'd pick that colour!
