Favorite "Go Fast" Stripes...

One of the many aspects that appealed to me about MINI was how good-looking and natural the viper stripes looked on the cars and I thought it was really cool that they are available from the factory like that.

What other cars do you think has great looking stripes?
Post 'em up!

Here's a few that I like...

...me being a Saabnut, I naturally first have to list the "EMS swoosh" that I think is just lovely:



This 900 EMS fitted up with them is like a dreamcar,
bonus that it also has the factory minilite-style wheels:

:

Next up is the Lotus Cortina where the painted stripe is integral to the identity of the car itself,
without it, it would be naked.


:

I've always loved the snake and cloverleaf from Alfa Romeo, they look so natural on a classic GTA.


:

Many to choose from regarding Abarth and all the different models,
but I'll pick an OT 1600.


:

Ford Escort Mk1,
gorgeous!


:

In all its 70's glory, a Hillman Avenger Tiger looks supercool despite the fact that it's a 4-door saloon.


:

Finally,
the iconic Porsche 911 Carrera.

One of my favorite combos, and only $11K for the stripe option




As a kid this was a favorite

Good stuff guys!

The classic BMW 2002 Turbo was totally over-the-top with the backwards logo on the front dam just so drivers ahead would know what exactly it was that was racing quickly toward them as they looked in the rear view! LOL
Pretty bold move by the factory.


:

And,
I've always liked the Martini livery and colors -- it looks beautiful on this special edition Lancia Delta HF Integrale Martini 5.

Surprised MOPAR ain't up yet,
they pretty much rule the funky color & cool stripes domain.

I had a TR250 when I was in college. One of the cars I wish I had somehow been able to hold on to. Did have its issues, but was a blast to drive.
