That screams of Japan.....there are female Ferrari owners too.

However I think that is sillier looking than a ANA airlines Boeing 767 with painted with Pokemon characters when I flew into the Narita airport.

If that car belongs to a guy...

The person who did that should be shot and that poor car should be turned over to a good paint shop.

maybe its just me, but it looks photoshopped, notice near the bumpercover where the two kitties are, i can see a subtle but noticable drop in the level of the pink, like they blurred it there to cover it up, and blurred alittle too far like this:

pay no attention to all the periods.
but maybe the car was styled like that so the b-cover drops down a bit there?

The "Hello Kitty" cats certainly look like they have been photo-shopped onto the car, they display no reflective or 2d qualities. There could be reasons for that if they are actually on the car- maybe they are finished flat while the pink paint on the car remains glossy... perhaps they could be magnetic decals?

Funky car at any rate.
But if its owner loves it like that, thats all that matters. Plenty of Ferraris in the world.

It definately looks photoshopped to me, including the color of the car. Notice how every part of the wheel (including lugs) are painted the exact same tint (just different shades)? That is what things look like when you select an area in photoshop, and then use the Hue/Saturation 'colorize' feature.

I've done jobs like this a number of times for people trying to decide what color to paint their motorcycle, you just select all painted areas, and then use the colorize and contrast controls to change color, while still keeping spectral highlights.

But even if its real... People with that kind of money to blow are the ones who do the shooting, not us. They can do whatever they want.

Plus, it is just SO PRECIOUS!!

peace,
sam
