If you want to defy the norm, then go for Oxford blue of pearl yellow. We are also big fans of metal silver in this category.
A sleek silhouette and style is a classy observation on the Supra. Gloss vinyl wraps are popular due to the definition it provides on the undercuts, stripes, and sharp edges. On a sunny day, the glossy texture will have a shimmery feel to the overall design of the vinyl wrap.

Super glossy sea green and piano black are other good colors to opt for.
Chrome vinyl is a multi-layered film which provides a shiny mirror finish with reflective accents. Applying chrome will definitely be eye-catching as the style is more contemporary with a gentle look of brightness of the paint, which is the closest depiction to the original paint job. This superior polymeric multi-layered calendared vinyl has a smooth texture.

For those who want elegance and sophistication, satin chrome silk green or chocolate cosmos red is the color.
The most sophisticated in its own category, matte vinyl wraps are strong and versatile, integrating high durability. A saturated dim and dull finish depicts a more solid color. They have a grainy feel with a soft touch that has been toned down to illuminate each section to stand out from the crowd. When designing the matte wraps, the color palette has been kept in mind to refine any type of material from light plastic to aluminum.
We recommend lightning blue or universe black color to show perspective with class. Matte black is always intriguing creating an aura of mystery and suspense. If you want a majestic look for your Supra then go for Russian violet.
