“Battleship Gray” was first used as a name for a car color in Ian Fleming’s first Bond novel, Casino Royale. It was the color of 007’s four and a half liter Bentley Convertible Coupe which he drove hard and well. Now it’s used for something neither Fleming nor Bond would have approve of — a BMW. And it’s not even a paint job. It’s a wrap.
This is not something you would ever find James Bond in for two reasons. First, it’s German, and second, it’s a fake. But we’re not James Bond and we absolutely love what the guys at Impressive Wrap have done with this M4 and that color. It is by far and away one of the coolest shades imaginable for any car, especially the M4 with its angry looks and hot temper. Mind you, this is a “satin” take on the Battleship Gray. A regular one would have looked a tad too shiny. Not good for a Bimmer.
You know, Bond may never be interested in a Battleship Gray BMW M4, but his offspring might. I mean, the guy sleeps with like ten women in every new novel and film. Surely, he’s made at least a few of them pregnant? Bond’s son would love an M4, though probably he wouldn’t use it for secret missions. The way things workout these days, Bond’s son will probably turn out a complete brat. The best thing he can do with a car like this is cruise around Knightsbridge all the way and occasionally take it to Santa Pod for a spot of drag racing.
