When you’re a Subaru dealer, selling the first diesel engine of the carmaker represents quite a challenge. Usually, customers only think of the Impreza when they hear ‘Subaru.’ One inventive Subaru dealer has devised a see-through car to work around this problem and promote the new Boxer Diesel engine.

The selected model is the Outback which appears to have a bonnet made of glass. Every engine detail has been meticulously replicated on a vinyl wrap. Equally startling is the side of the car which shows the engine, Subaru’s famous symmetrical all-wheel drive system, and even the exhaust silencer.

What wraps can you create?

Noblesville Ledger
May 14, 2008

The Noblesville Police Department bought nine 2008 Ford Crown Victorias for an estimated cost of $189,900. The vehicles are all black and instead of paying to produce and apply decals with the department’s insignia and “Police” on the doors on both sides, the car doors are being wrapped. The background is white, giving the cars the appearance of being black and white. That can add to the cars’ resale value and make them easier to decommission when the department is done with them.
