From my casual observation, wrapped cars are tough to sell. I think they'd have a lot more luck with the wrap removed. My theory is that potential buyers assume the worst under the wrap. Couple that with an already tough .1 market, and winter time, and it makes sense that it's sitting to me.

Not only should full body wraps be of concern, but add hood stripes, etc to the list that a previous owner had added to disguise expensive to repair paint chips...ask me how I know. Word to the wise, have aftermarket stripes removed before buying...or at a minimum write a clause in the contract/bill of sale that protects you. Or, just roll the dice and take chance....

If you're going to wrap a car the process should be well documented with excellent before and after pics of the car at the shop.....

Thanks for all the responses... A friend was looking and thought he was getting a 'deal'. Cars that are a 'deal' don't sit for months. So I suspect that there is more to it. So thank you all!

I think I know this car. It looks like it belonged to the owner of Lusso Customs and Auto Spa in Las Vegas.

Lusso by far the best detailing and wrap shop in Vegas, and I know the owner doesn’t really drive his cars.

He owns 2 Pagani Huayra Roadsters and a Chiron, twinturbo Huracan, and a GT2 RS among others.

I would imagine the physical condition of the car is very good. Also the wrap job is probably top notch too if anyone wants to keep it.

Their Instagram account is lussolv if anyinr wants to conduct further investigation.
