If you want to go a step further in the look of your sports car, a very cool and eye-catching option is to give it the cybernetic look of the TRON movie and it's something you can do yourself with the application of glow-in-the-dark laminated tapes. This technique is widely used in Qatar and Europe, it's called Car Wrapping and gives incredible results. The best thing is that the tapes are low cost and easy to get, not to mention that you can remove them without leaving any stains, plus they look pretty good during the day too. 
 
To achieve an eye-catching and professional style, it is important to understand that the installation of the strips has to be at specific points on the cart, without exaggerating in its application. The most recommendable is to put it along the contour of the car and the rims, in order to give it a very futuristic look. Remember, to avoid the tape coming off in minutes and making your car look funny with the strips hanging out, you have to wash the car before sticking it on. In fact, if you like the result and you want it to become a definitive solution, you can apply transparent spray to it and it will last for several years, but when you want to change the style, the whole surface should be sanded. 
 
It is your decision but it is best to use it as a temporary solution, for example, to surprise at a party. This way, by putting the tape directly on the car's body, you can remove it whenever you want and it won't damage the original painting. Because you may not want to glow in the dark all the time, or you may want to be experimenting with different Car Wrapping techniques and make your car look great every time, without having to go through tiresome processes when changing the tape or trying to get your car back to its natural look. This type of practice is very common in first world cities, like Dubai and Tokio. 
 
Last but not least, we must take care of the traffic laws when making modifications like this, because you don't want to be persecuted for daily infringements. First, you must be careful that your car does not reflect light into the eyes of other drivers, because you can blink them and cause crashes, therefore, you will be penalized. Second, you must take care that the strips do not affect the color or intensity of the light coming from your headlights, because you will be penalized. Third, you must make sure that the strips are applied in one color only, for example, if your car is black and you put neon blue strips on it, there is no problem. 
 
Don't forget that most of the car modifications are tied to the law and it is always better to consult before doing any tuning to avoid problems.
