TinTek's chrome-wrapped Camaro and Audi TT – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Generally speaking, we're more into the vinyl wraps than the chrome treatment. That's because most vinyl wraps give a car a nice matte finish that contrasts nicely with the glossiness of your standard factory offering, while your average full-body chrome treatment is – more often than not – little more than an eyesore. This latest innovation from the Czech Republic, however, combines the two.

As you can see from the video after the jump, TinTek has developed a chrome-finish vinyl wrap for the full "Dubai'd out" approach, applied for demonstration to an Audi TT and a Chevrolet Camaro. While a vinyl wrap has its own costs and intricate application process, it's surely far more cost-effective than chrome-dipping individual body panels. And while it may not be our proverbial cup of tea, who are we to stand in the way of progress, however questionable the result.

      to all those people who would do this to their car please dont. yes it may look nice to you but keep in mind this one thing. the sun does come out. you will be blinding everyone on the road as this "mirror on wheels" comes rolling along. watch the video carefully and you will see that the day is cloudy as they made this commercial and for good reasons. if they tried this on a sunny day i can almost be certain that you wouldnt be able to see cars but rather very bright reflections of the sun into the camera. TL;DR : humans love shiny things even if it blinds people

      "Murdered out", "hella flush", "blinged out", and now "Dubai'd out"? What the heck has happened to the automotive world? Its turning into a fashion show for douchebags who dont really like cars it seems. Its becoming a "look at me! look at me!" thing for most people.

      When the sun hits that car here in Arizona in the middle of summer, it will blind everyone within a 3 mile radius.

      Being that it is somewhat reflective wouldn't it be dangerous on the road? I mean at a glance you would dismiss it as a vehicle coming at you if you saw reflections in it. I know that sounds rediculous but truthfully it seems like too much.

      While the method is new the look is not so new, so the only thing the writer emphasizes with his snark is his own ignorance. Learn learn your car history, Noah.

        Well, who knew that my desire to not be blinded on the road was an indicator of my political preference. You yourself say that you get blinded by the sun reflecting off of windows and "fancy paint". So why would you want something much worse out there?? Can I attach stadium lights to my car, than call you scum if you don't like it? How about lasers?
