The paint color of this Porsche 911 Turbo S alone is worth a fortune.
Currently, the Porsche 911 is one of the most talked about sports cars in the world, especially the newly launched GT3, but the 911 Turbo S is impressive in its own right. The entire 911 has always been focused on providing the most engaging driving experience possible, but they are also luxury cars, and luxury cars sometimes need to be represented with a ‘super expensive’ paint finish.
We’ve seen a 911 with a “fingerprint coating” before, but it really pales in comparison to ChromaFlair paint. The 992-generation 911 Turbo S below is wearing such paint, and it’s a very expensive option.
The total cost for the configuration, including the unique paintwork, is up to 364,170 USD. With this money, the car has all the cool features such as two-tone leather interior, carbon fiber roof, and many other high-end equipment, but it’s hard to know that paint makes up a large part of the value. .
First, you need to spend $ 12,380 to get an optional paint color from Porsche, but to get 1 of the few complete ChromaFlair, you have to pay an additional $ 86,040. That is enough money to buy another luxury car. The CXX custom-made Chromaflair colors are made by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, a place that turns crazy customer ideas into reality. The specific finish here is called Urban Bamboo, and because of the nature of ChromaFlair paint, it can change color depending on viewing angle and environmental lighting.
Even though the pictures here look stunning, the dealer in charge of the sale of the car still says that “the photo does not fully show the paint color of the car. It is a special thing that needs to be seen with one’s own eyes to be able to feel it all. “
ChromaFlair’s characteristic multi-color effect comes from a thin, multi-layered interfering film ground into micrometer-sized plates. These plates have an aluminum central core surrounded by a glass-like layer. Depending on the thickness of this glass-like layer, different colors can be obtained. According to the dealer, maintaining the paint finish evenly requires the thickness of the paint with a difference of only a few atoms. Not surprisingly, how expensive it is.
