Giant, sharp arrows raging their way across the roof. Acres of stencilled-on lettering in a scary, quasi-military typeface. Chequered flags on the flanks.

An orange roof, orange wheels, red brake calipers and genuine carbon-fibre spoilers and arch extensions. This might be kinda fun on a concept car, but if you had to drive this thing through your own town every day, it’d be a bit like going out wearing well-padded underpants outside your trousers.
