Wraps have become a force in the automotive world over the last couple of years. We’ve all seen a number of supercars festooned with ridiculous color schemes, any of which would likely lessen the value of the car if it had been permanent. However, there is still something very special about a tried and true paint job. Pure Automotive Performance owner Brady Johnson proved just that with his freshly painted C8 Corvette.
Based in Millersville, Maryland, Pure Automotive Performance is a small auto-body repair and customization shop. Whether it be a typical service or a performance-oriented build, Johnson and his team do it all. The shop appears to have a propensity for green, and we aren’t talking about money. Many of their vehicles leave the shop with vibrant green paint, including a drag racing Toyota GT86 and the owner’s new C8 Corvette.
Pure Automotive Performance detailed the whole process on their Facebook page, including tearing the entire body away from the mid-engined sports car. This isn’t something that would happen for a wrap, but is a must during a high quality paint job. It is pretty cool to see a C8 Corvette with that much of its bodywork removed, giving us a better look at the car’s construction.
Coats of PPG Spitfire Green paint were then applied to the Corvette, making it the first repainted C8 out there. The color screams exotic, especially when applied to the aggressive lines of the C8. We wouldn’t be surprised to hear passers-by mistake this American sports car as something that rolled out of Sant’Agata, Bolognese.
Wrapping a car allows owners to completely change the look of their car without fully committing to a new paint job. This allows for color changes to happen frequently, something that automotive YouTubers have proven time and time again. However, we are certain that Pure Automotive Performance won’t be the last people to permanently change the color of their new Corvette.
