An official press release on the Vauxhall website boasts that the automaker has introduced just about the most “essential accessory” conceivable for the three-door and five-door Corsa. That accessory is a camouflage net, to make your British hot hatch simply disappear into the scenery.
Vauxhall Motors Aftersales Director Andy Robson had some handy advice in the event that the device proves to be too effective: “Drivers can locate their vehicle using their remote fob to operate the lights.” He also advises some discretion with regard to operation of the camouflage, saying, “We advise drivers to always remove the ‘Corsa Camo-net’ prior to driving the car, to avoid being a hazard to other drivers.”
The camouflage net was developed after tourists to Bibury in Gloucestershire expressed outrage at a bright yellow Vauxhall Corsa, which allegedly photo-bombed on their pictures of the town. Thus, the net has been engineered specifically for use “near National Trust premises and chocolate box Cotswold villages.”
Of course, this is all part of a clever advertising shtick, entitled the “A to Z of Corsa.” The letter “D” stands for “disappear,” which Vauxhall’s camouflage net is quite clearly capable of making the Corsa do. For instance, the photo above contains precisely one Vauxhall Corsa.
But you didn’t even see it, did you?
