Wrapping on a vehicle worth about $ 2.2 million
Expressing joy and sorrow through his webtoon

The vehicle he worked on is the Bugatti Chiron, a hypercar worth about $ 2.2 million. First unveiled in 2016, it features a mid-engine structure equipped with a W16 quad-turbo engine with a displacement of approximately 8,000cc and a maximum output of 1,479 horsepower. The maximum speed is 420 km/h (261 mph), and the time it takes to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill is 2.4 seconds, a performance that most vehicles cannot match.

KIAN 84 incorporated the character Woo Ki Myeong from his popular webtoon Fashion King into the Bugatti Chiron in various ways. It is said that the expressions of the webtoon characters that were serialized for 10 years were used to express the joys and sorrows of life. Generally, when you think of the Bugatti Chiron, the first thing that comes to mind is the blue color. However, in the case of Chiron, created by KIAN84, several colors harmonize to create a unique atmosphere.

Art Car Concept Unfamiliar in South Korea
Possibility of development with the appearance of various art cars

Until now, art car culture has been somewhat unfamiliar in South Korea. This is because vehicle performance tuning is limited, and creating a vehicle exterior design is not easy. Therefore, KIAN84’s Bugatti Chiron art car is even more meaningful.

We hope that various vehicles will be transformed into works of art. This will further blur the boundaries between the automobile industry and the art world and positively impact related sectors.
