Red Bull brought its RB11 2015 Formula One car out in camo to test at Jerez this weekend. Sure, it's a bit terrible in terms of sponsor visibility, but can we keep it anyway? Seriously? The camo looks fantastic.
In the early days of modern warfare, ships protected themselves from German U-boats with wild, eye-catching painted patterns called dazzle. The military moved on to new forms of camo decades ago, but for carmakers, dazzle is still the best way to protect prototype cars from being photographed.
Modern day car camouflage has become a work of art. Warhol would be stimulated by the blending of elaborate shapes and lines all overlaid in order to disguise the design that lies beneath. Can you ID the brands behind the camo?
I hope you're not as easily fooled as I am because I totally missed the two F-16s in this picture. I have an excuse! I was totally looking at the left hand side of the picture. And the picture I saw was really small! Like thumbnail-sized!
