We’ve all seen tea mugs that reveal a whole new picture when heated, but I bet you haven’t seen a car that does the exact same thing.
The German graffiti artist, Rene Turrek, designed something really captivating on a BMW X6. The expressive maestro has an undeniable taste for abstracts, and he expressed his genius talent on a BMW X6 for his bespoke “XCLUSIVCAR” project.
Using multiple layers of heat-sensitive “thermochromic” paint, Turrek created a moving art piece that changes color based on temperature. The best part, the design featured the disgruntled Avenger character, The Incredible Hulk.
Before the hot water demonstration, the big SUV looks relatively tame, a stylized signature and some faint design impressions under the vibrant blue paint. Until you pour hot water over the SUV and it reveals The Incredible Hulk from the Marvel universe.
Imagine being stuck in Lagos traffic for hours on a sunny afternoon, every car is heated and then it starts to rain. All of a sudden, the car in front of you starts to change color, how would you react? Well, you can react to the video below.
The paint job process

One of the most original paint-jobs ever!
Let’s think of it this way, we’re not sure if the sun can do the trick though, so we have to ask, who would boil water every morning just to see Hulk’s name and angry face? Would the new color spend a little more time or the owner has to keep spraying hot water all over the SUV?
Whichever way, it is still an impressive sight to behold, as the outermost layer of paint seems to dissolve away with each scalding drop. The bodywork might require certain weather conditions in order to be seen, but it is still undoubtedly one of the most original paint jobs ever!
What could be more jaw-dropping?
