The 2015 way to reveal a car?

This is the demo of the projection mapping and content for the launch of the volkswagen golf at the New York International AutoShow, this year. It's a lot of fun, makes me wish cars had led skins.

The seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf debuts at New York International Auto Show making its first appearance in the United States with an exciting light show revisiting previous Golf generations. The latest version of the Golf is bigger, more spacious, lighter, and more fuel-efficient.

Exploding Cars - A how to by Fabian Oefner

Such beautiful work it reminds me a bit of how Steve Ellis painted a series of cars.  By taking photographs of matchbox cars after they had been scratched up a bit, he would then paint in details that only real sized cars would have.
