Video: Trick paint on Lamborghini reveals Captain America livery

Lamborghini Gallardo with flip paint

The Lamborghini Gallardo doesn't need much help to grab people's attention, with its beautifully raucous V10 motor under the bonnet, its sharp, wedgy shape and monstrous acceleration.

Graffiti artist Rene Turrek, however, has given one Gallardo an extra dose of visual punch, with temperature-sensitive paint that sees car transform from a dull aubergine colour to a dramatic Captain America design.

German graffiti-ist Turrek's psychedelic design features temperature-sensitive paintwork that morphs from one flat colour to revealing the intricate Captain America pattern underneath – simply on contact with warm or cold water.

Best of all, it even changes colour when simply warmed up by the sun. Watch the Gallardo's chameleon-aping colour-changing antics in the video below – and prepare to be impressed. Just imagine the fun you could have in rainy traffic jams...
