The First Karma Revero "Art Car" Unveiled...

Written by

About a year and a half ago, I was out in Southern California working a gig for Kelley Blue Book and Life of Dad when I came across a rare sight: a Karma Revero in the wild. The vehicle was being tested, and we just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Now, Karma Automotive is ready for the public eye, and they're showcasing their luxury electric plug-in hybrid with an all-new art car. In collaboration with Laguna Beach-based artist James Verbicky, a one-of-a-kind Karma Revero was unveiled at an art show in Los Angeles last week.

From the Official Announcement: For his work on the Karma Revero, Verbicky used hand-painting and stencil techniques to apply meticulous layers of color and follow the sensuous lines of the car's body. Verbicky's color fields, evocative language, and symbolic imagery was used to accentuate and emphasize the soul of the Karma Revero. The result is a vehicle art piece that is modern yet timeless.

"Karma Automotive is committed to building cars that move people emotionally and physically," said Jim Taylor, Chief Revenue Officer. "James Verbicky has done a masterful job of transforming a Revero into a rolling work of art. He has pulled imagery that reflects his unique perspective on the world, along with the individual freedom each Karma owner feels when they get behind the wheel of this incredible machine."
