Ferrari V12 Supercar
The V12 Ferrari's are a thing of beauty. Even though the 575M was just a refreshed version of the 550, this car was ahead of it's time. In 2002 Ferrari released the 575M Maranello, with all of the 440 US allotment presold. This car came standard with active suspension, a 508HP V12, and a soundtrack that could melt your face off. There were two transmission options available, you could get a six speed manual or the F1 inspired automated six speed with paddle shifters. Ferrari claims you can get to 60 .005 seconds quicker with F1 transmission, but who's counting. What the 575M Maranello did come standard with is a suspension with two different settings, comfort and sport. In sport mode, you get 20% more cornering traction. Little did this car know, but it would be the predecessor for the 599. But that stories for another day.
Ferrari of San Antonio knows the importance of paint protection. Especially when dealing with Italian super cars. The buyer of this 575M ordered an XPEL ULTIMATE full front which includes full hood, front fenders, bumper, mirrors, and headlights.

A-Pillars and Rockers Protected
Justin Corn from Clear Advantage LLC in St. Louis has been installing paint protection film since 2004. Factory trained and authorized by XPEL Technologies, Justin works almost exclusively with XPEL film and patterns.
For this car, Justin traveled roughly 250 miles round trip to provide the ultimate in convenience by installing the clear bra in the customer's private hangar. The Ferrari got a 30 inch partial hood kit, matching fenders and the backs of the side view mirrors. In addition, clear bra was installed on the complete bumper, the rocker panels, and the a-pillars to ensure everything vulnerable was protected. Justin used XPEL STANDARD Paint Protection Film for the entire project including coverage on both headlamps to protect from discoloration and pitting.

XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra
XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it's clarity, durability, gloss retention and more. We stand behind our product 100%, so much so that ULTIMATE has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and/or delaminating.
Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your car’s factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving.
Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties
Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wire brush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source.
Not all Patterns are created equal
At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern you’ll have less to worry about, since the installer will not be trimming the film on your vehicle. Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished.
Contrary to what some may believe it’s possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. With XPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible, for example around the parking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision.
