We've been guilty of employing unorthodox paint schemes on our personal vehicles from time to time. There are few body ailments that can't be solved with the judicious application a roller, a spray can and some cheap paint. Sadly, our efforts rarely turn out as classy as the Volvo 245 wagon in this video. Two world-class graffiti artists, Carlos Aguilar and Ksera, took the time to slather their skills down the sides of this Swedish box, and the finished product is all kinds of eye-grabbing.

Combined with a little subtle aero work, just the right amount of drop and a rocking set of wheels, this brick sits just right. Or at least it would be with a barking 302 V8 under the hood. Sadly, there's little word on what propels this particular 245, which means are imaginations are free to run rampant. Check out the clip of the Volvo getting tagged for yourself.

      Has a turbocharged volvo engine, probably faster than the stock 302 none the less. http://brickspeed.net/forum/showthread.php?tid=722 There's the build thread for that car. His 2 door amazon is also nice!

        I agree and its not even that good as far as graffitti goes. I personally cant stand people that do this. If we cared to see your art work we would ask you to spray down your local town. The fact is we dont so stop, its annoying.

          Guess you don't really know the difference between license graff art, illegal graff, or tagging .What makes this stand out is the spray control and ghosting in the artwork. Most big cities now commision well know graff artists for mural work. Some wya in the boonies don't understand it but those who grew up around it understand the meanings the symbols and there is a code amongst the non vandels to never do personal property only commercial or contracted areas. The others are vandels big difference.

      That car does NOT belong in an art museum. It belongs in a Mexican neighborhood and only in a Mexican neighborhood. Graffiti is not art it is vandalism. PERIOD.

      However artful it may be, graffiti is always going to look cartoonish/tacky to me. And it definitely doesn't work on a car.

        Artful is not the proper word. Also, this car is squeaky clean and all sorts of awesome. Seen it up close. Talked to the guy.

      "...world-class grafitti artist." Now THAT's an oxymoron that doesn't need the oxy.

      An art museum? Seriously? SERIOUSLY? I thought it would be pictures of an airbrushed van, truck or race car, not some spray can Volvo. And please do not tell me about how great a job they did with spray control from a can and blah, blah, blah. I've done that spray can stuff. It is what it is... and it ain't much. I see better cars cruising the streets of Dayton, Ohio and at the local race tracks.
