How to ruin an Audi R8

We're not sure what this Audi R8's owner had in mind with this paint choice for his car's sideblades. It's certainly a high-quality job, and admittedly creative, but it's hard to get around the fact that it's also incredibly ugly.

Reader Ken Jones passed along the evidence of this ill-considered iridescent frost effect which he witnessed — parked illegally — in San Jose, California. His reaction on the look:

"I threw up a little in my mouth, not because it was ugly, but because it somehow reminded me of the moldy smell of an old shower curtain."

Sometimes different isn't better. Sometimes it's just different. And maybe fungal.
