Renault Clio in Matte Black: the French Batmobile

OK, so we will admit that some of the novelty value has worn off the Renault Clio. If you don't spend money on the chrome trim package and metallic paint, it looks pretty boring, even if it's less than two years old.

Buy why drop big money on a Renault paintjob that 100 other people in your city have when you can get something extremely cool and unique. Enter the work of German wrap specialists SchwabenFolia, who have just released details of a custom Clio concoction of sorts.

Like one of those movie camera cars, this French poser reflects none of the light that touches it after being coated in matte black vinyl. Even the trim is black, though that's Renault's doing. In this shade, the Renault Clio looks like a French batmobile, which raises a very interesting question: If Bruce Wayne was French, what sort of crime fighter would he have become?

Would he have started a blog about violence? Maybe cut off a year in protest or tie himself to a post in front of government post. Instead of fighting bad guys, he might have turned his tragedy into a successful book deal and lived out the rest of his life in seminars and wine tasting classes. Like a true modern socialist, he wold have driven the most popular car in France, the Clio, covered in black. Not because it's stealthy but because it's individualistic and understated at the same time.
