In 1969 Honda first set up shop in Australia.

Honda Australia turned to “Vinyl Wraps Graphics”, a company based in Melbourne, which fitted Honda cars with a gold chrome film.

“Given the thickness of the vinyl wrap and the intricate profiles of the bodywork, this was a complex project, but we are thrilled with the results,” said Matt Czerny, Managing Director of Vinyl Wraps and Graphics.

The gold units include:

  • Fireblade
  • NSX
  • Civic Type R
  • CRF50F
  • CRF450L
  • HRU19 Buffalo (lawnmower)
  • Honda EU22i (Generator).

All products are made in a single copy and not for sale.
