I think this livery is great in another way too. "Der Sau", the sow with all the cuts named.

Sure. Saw the logo straight away, meh.

All I'm interested in personally is the powder blue and orange with the dark blue hairline border between the two that perfectly complement each other and has a history all it's own. Sprayed on who knows how many thousands of cars by now.
