At KI Studios a big part of our business is designing and installing racing liveries for race cars from Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, BMW, Audi and others.
Racing cars are never dull
Track cars and racing cars are not dull. For that reason alone, they should not look dull either. At least that’s the simplest reason to spice up their looks. Of course, there are more reasons still. Some race cars are decorated to pay homage to classic racing liveries. Other racing cars are decorated to match sponsors’ colors and to include their logos and graphics. Other race cars, specially those of fun track cars or amateur weekend racers are decorated just for fun.
Racing liveries represent just one aspect of car wrapping. That said, it’s one that we take really seriously and really enjoy. Racing liveries allows us as designers to really have fun creating unique looking race cars. We also really enjoy working on historic liveries. Some that come to mind are Gulf Gasoline and Martini Porsche classic liveries. These are some of the most popular.
We have a good number of regular Porsche customers that come to KI Studios for their racing liveries. These include classic air-cooled Porsches as well as modern 911 GT3 Cup Cars and everything in between. We cater to the needs of our customers. For this reason, some of the designs we’ve worked on include team cars as well as graphics clients request just so their cars can stand out at the track.

Get creative and use the power of design
AT KI Studios we are seasoned wrap and racing livery installers. That said, we are designers first and foremost. This means you don’t have to worry about the design, which is arguably the most difficult to conceive. Just tell use what you have in mind and we’ll sit down to design it and make it happen. Even if all you have is a fuzzy idea of a racing livery, we can turn that idea into reality. Just as importantly, as wrap designers, we will create a design that works.
Be simple or go big
Your racing livery can be as simple stripes in your choice of color with some racing numbers on the side. Alternatively, you can go all out with a full body wrap that covers every square inch of the car. The design could be printed in full-color on our in-house large scale printer. The design could also be overlaid in layers or even a combination of these things. It all depends on the design and what it needs, but we’ll make it happen. Both layered and printed liveries can be complicated and require a different set of tools. At KI Studios we do it all.
Your racing livery can be for a full-blown race car, a rally car, autocross car, concours car or even a collector’s garage queen. It’s up to you really. Another popular use for racing liveries is road rallies. In a road rally there is no actual racing, but cars are decorated to draw attention and look their best. Sometimes it’s just sponsors and their logos, but many road rally wrap designs are inspired by classic and modern racing liveries.
We use the very best materials in the industry using the latest technology from Avery Dennison and 3M. Our racing liveries are printed and cut in-house with high-end tools from Roland and Graphtec. Most wrap shops don’t have this level of equipment and experience to tackle the most intricate of racing graphics projects.
The list is endless. Check out the gallery of more racing liveries below
