2016 Jeep Renegade Uncharted Edition
The new Renegade Uncharted Edition, an exclusive showcar inspired by the video game Uncharted 4 to be released soon, is debuting in Switzerland. Springing from the partnership between the local Jeep division and Sony PlayStation Switzerland, the one-of-a-kind car was customised by Garage Italia Customs.
The Garage Italia Customs Style Center was inspired by the ancient map of Africa that appears in the first official trailer of the game – to tailor a special film in which the entire body of the Jeep Renegade is wrapped. Then, using a special wrap-paint technique, the Garage Italia Customs craftsmen applied an innovative black thermochromic paint to conceal the entire surface of the map from sight.
The paint becomes gradually transparent as the temperature rises, letting the wrapping peek through and entirely disappears at 30°C.
Conversely, the Jeep Renegade turns black again as the temperature cools down.
This is the second Renegade showcar dedicated to the new Uncharted 4 game and customised by Garage Italia Customs. The first one was presented in Montreux last March at Polymanga 2016.
