Floral paisley Porsche

Porsche with patterned racing stripes pops up on Russian car blog

It's a Porsche painted in a floral paisley pattern. Unfortunately, we can't tell you where to buy it or how much it might cost to have this done to your own car.

Jalopnik found this interesting paint job on Russian blog Parkoffka.ru.

Parkoffka means "parking" in Russian. And the pattern is not actually paisley, but is rather based on the famous Russian folk craft Hohloma (or Khokhloma), which first appeared in 17th century Russia. The name derives from one of the original trade villages, where the pattern was created.

According to our translator, the photos are accompanied by a poem. But Parkoffka says nothing of the car's owner or who did the handiwork, which we think is quite something.

Notice how the pattern flows from tone on tone in silver to full color and back, again? Very cool.

Thanks for your detective work, Sergei.
