It wasn’t all that long ago that making cosmetic revisions to a car was a hit-and-miss affair. After all, the only way to see how the finished product would look was to, well, create the finished product. Sure, it was and still is possible to place small color swatches on the car, or make a foam or cardboard mock-up of the new spoiler or side skirts, but to get a definitive visualization of how the modifications will look, you had to sack up and do it to it.
Thank goodness Adobe Photoshop and other image manipulation programs have been invented since then, huh? Modern pixel-shuffling software allows you to dramatically alter the appearance of any photograph of any vehicle without having to even pick up a sanding block, plasma cutter, impact wrench or any other tool. And more importantly, you don’t have to spend any money to preview these alterations (other than the initial outlay for the software). Those two benefits are just some of the reasons German car magazine AutoBild asked German tuner DMC to render what its take on the latest Ferrari hypercar, the LaFerrari, would look like.
