garage italia's kamasutra-wrapped fiat 500 uncensors itself as temperatures rise

lapo elkan, italian entrepreneur and creative director of garage italia customs, has envisioned an erotic exterior skin for the fiat 500 he’s calling ‘kar-masutra’. while the car body is wrapped in two NSFW patterned skins, it’s treated with a heat-sensitive thermochromic varnish that reveals the word ‘censored’ across intimate areas as temperatures heat up. the compositions depict imagery from the art of indian and japanese kamasutra, with bodies overlapping and skin spread across the hood, roof and rear of the car.

the elkan-led garage italia customs — widely known for its luxury, tailor-made vehicles and creative auto-interpreations — has envisioned ‘kar-masutra’ to both show and hide the intimate areas of suggestively situated figures. as the temperature outdoors rises, black rectangles with large letters spelling ‘censored’ disappear from the vehicle’s body, thanks to a thermochromic varnish used. when they vanish, the writing exposes erotic artistic representations and racy scenes hidden beneath.
