$1,995 for the Abarth black stripe !!

well, this Car & driver review revealed the cost of the stripe...

The test car featured the optional ($1995), hand-painted (!) matte black hood and trunklid to give it more of a competition vibe, though it does inspire questions about how to wax the car.

I really liked the stripe, it looked so much meaner to me than a regular solid painted car... but not for $2K

what's the significance of the black parts? As someone else mentioned, it just looks like they like new parts were installed after a wreck and were waiting to be painted.

Wrap definitely the way to go. Looking at the abarth options, the only thing I absolutely would like would be the recaro seats.
thanks Vandor!
The Abarth Spiders in the 1970s (124 Spider Rally, also referred to as 124 Spider Abarth Stradale) had matt black hood and trunklid.
how could the installer not know that was not matte film going on? They do make matte film.

Just got news that the vinyl did not turn out matte, not happy right now but this is my Classica

that's a bummer.

It was liquid vinyl. Apparently the material left a gloss coat instead of a matte.
