Watermelon car

The biggest and best-quality versions of these watermelon car images I can find come from a members-only forum post on this South Korean site, which appears to be some kind of auto marketplace and/or enthusiast’s hub. Problem is, the plates on the car do not appear to be Korean. Can anyone identify their nationality, or tell me more about who made this car? [via Neatorama]

  1. The car is a 2002 Daewoo Lanos from Kiev, Ukraine, Russia. I found some pictures dating from July 30, 2007 but it’s not clear if the person posting the pictures was the owner:

    The car sold for $12,000 (not sure if it’s US Dollars) on or before August 8, 2007.

    It was featured on the TV show “Алльоу гараж” (“Hello Garage”?)

  2. This looks like a pretty simple project: take a stock vehicle with red upholstery, visit your local car wrapping shop and tell them you want a watermelon, plonk down about $2,000, and a few hours later you’re done. Or is there some other customization here that’s not obvious?
