Supercar Customiser: Yianni  極致膜幻超跑

  Shortly after the Ford Model T rolled off the production line in 1908, Henry Ford reportedly told management, “Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.” Today, not only can you buy a car in nearly any color imaginable, but you can also customize it further by getting it wrapped in vinyl. Wrapping a car is often about more than the color. If you’ve ever seen a vehicle with a chrome shine, matte finish, or strange print, it was probably covered in vinyl. If you are interested in seeing the process in action, you can check out National Geographic’s Supercar Customiser: Yianni.
  In the UK, Yianni Charalambous has made a name for himself customizing high-end vehicles for the rich and famous. In this series, Yianni gives viewers an inside look into the trials and tribulations of personalizing cars to meet some interesting requests. At his shop, Yiannimize, the car wrapper and his employees cover a Range Rover in a sparkly red finish to match the bikini the client wears during body building competitions. They run into problems when a football club owner asks them to put the designs of the team’s home and away shirts on his Ferrari in order to connect with younger fans. Finally, watch the crew struggle when working on two Tesla cars, as their electrical system means their doors and handles close automatically during the wrapping process.
  Whether you are interested in design, are into fancy cars, or just love drama, there is plenty to enjoy in every episode. As you watch, perhaps you will come up with a crazy idea for how you’d wrap your own car.

極致膜幻超跑
  

  據稱,在福特 T 型車於 1908 年推出後不久,亨利‧福特告訴公司的管理階層:「任何顧客都可以要求將車子漆成任何他想要的顏色,只要它是黑色的。」如今,你不僅能買到幾乎任何你能想到的顏色的車,還能進一步客製化為它包膜。為一臺車包膜所關係到的不僅僅是顏色。如果你曾見過有著鉻合金光澤、消光烤漆或奇怪圖案的車子,它就很有可能有包膜。若你對於包膜的過程有興趣的話,來看看國家地理的節目《極致膜幻超跑》吧。
  在英國,雅尼‧查拉藍寶斯以為名人富豪的高級車客製化包膜而聞名。在這個系列節目中,雅尼讓觀眾一窺在客製化車子的過程中,為了要達成某些有趣的要求而經歷的磨難。在他的店 Yiannimize 裡,這位車子包膜師和他的員工為一輛路虎攬勝包上閃亮的紅色烤漆,以搭配這位客戶在健美比賽中穿的比基尼。在一名足球俱樂部老闆為了要和年輕球迷們有所連結而要求他們在他的法拉利上放上該球隊主客隊球衣的設計時,他們遇到了難題。最後,來看看包膜團隊在替兩臺特斯拉汽車包膜時所遭遇的困難吧,因為這兩臺車的電動系統在包膜過程中會將門和把手自動關上。
  不管你是對設計有興趣、喜歡高檔車,或就是喜歡戲劇性,每一集都有許多你能夠享受的地方。在觀賞節目時,或許你對於要如何替自己的車子包膜會有瘋狂的想法。
