This tattooed supercar has a most unusual paint job and is known as the ‘Sharpie Lamborghini.’ The Sharpie Lamborghini is owned by Prestige Imports/Lamborghini Miami, where it hangs out and takes hot pictures all day like those in the gallery above. There’s even a Flickr set from the photo shoot here.

The Sharpie Lamborghini features artwork done entirely in Sharpie permanent marker and covered with a clear coat to preserve the artwork.

Although the Sharpie Lamborghini has been on the scene for awhile, it’s one of the more prominent examples of taking extreme design chances with an expensive, rare automobile to achieve the ultimate in luxury personalization. Since then, we’ve seen streetwear brand A Bathing Ape and Christian Audigier customize paint jobs for a Bugatti and Lamborghini, respectively. Check out their designs below.
