Bubble car cover, anyone?

How much are you willing to spend on car care?

Bubble car cover

One of the more interesting things we saw at the Manila Auto Salon over the weekend was the image you see above. It's an attention-grabbing Ferrari cocooned in a vacuum-like plastic. The thing is called a "bubble car cover," which promises to protect your car from "scratches, harsh elements, direct sunlight, humidity and dust." It uses a motorized air pump which--the sales agent claimed--consumes just P200 worth of electricity in a month.

The price? The one in the photo is medium-sized and sells for P14,000. There are large and extra-large sizes, going for P15,000 and P16,500, respectively. It's distributed by a company called Car Options.

So, do you think your car deserves this much pampering? Our answer: Yes...if it's a Ferrari.
