The "Casey Cut." New Bangle Butt?

My Lamborghini GT350E Introduces 
Functional Bodyside Slashes

"artandcolour's" newest design feature, the Casey Cut, consists of bodyside slashes in the aluminum body, as if the simple body shapes have been highlighted with a black Sharpie. Perforated carbonfiber mesh inserts function as vents for the electronically controlled active suspension and underbody air management system. These slashes also incorporate LEDs for a unique nighttime signature, as well as sideview cameras and sensors for the active proximity systems. Unique rear stabilizing features, OK, FINS, on each rear fender, help manage airflow for a class-leading coefficient of drag. Small rocker-panel mounted venting assists in cooling the ceramic brakes.


  1. When the led lighting fad started my first thought was how long before the designers figure out that making them visible from the side as well as the front and rear would quickly make the car as identifiable as a grill shape or tail light shape. Congratulations. You seem to be the first.


    1. thanks, Paul! Well, this went over like the proverbial lead balloon when I posted it on Facebook, lol. I really like it. I thought the pert rear end with fins was neat, too! Let's see how long it takes someone to do side led graphics now!
