Nissan has a website where you can choose vinyl wraps (graphics) and order them for your Cube or Juke (to see Juke graphics, hit the “Graphics” link in the navigation bar near the top of that page). The Frontier will come next. Imagine putting this stuff on a new Lotus Esprit? Of course not, man. Funky cars are for funky people.
Nissan offers side and front graphics, hood graphics and stripes—wings, wheels, weeds, waves, bubbles, birds, and butterflies. We’ll show a few after the break. Some graphics are garish, others tasteful. All are attempts to enhance weak or deficient designs.
I’m never against customizing a car, and probably some readers will put wraps in that category. But unless you’re a fool or an idiot, like the guy who tarted up the 370Z above, you generally want elements of the original design to take charge and determine how you look at and appreciate the car.
If the design doesn’t quite make it—or is just plain funky, as in the Cube and Juke—some embellishment can actually help.
As always, the question is taste. Let us know in the comments section which of these you like most, and why.
Which of these wraps is coolest?
