Lis­ter­ine

Some of the most wicked liv­er­ies are the ones that man­age to tran­scend the in­her­ently un­cool prod­ucts they’re ad­ver­tis­ing. Much like the Kal­iber Sierra RS500s (zero-al­co­hol lager doesn’t have the most street cred, but those cars looked awe­some), the Lis­ter­ine E36 BTCC rac­ers looked out­stand­ing, de­spite ad­ver­tis­ing a prod­uct aimed at peo­ple with hal­i­to­sis and iffy gums. The 318is cut quite a dash as a race car as it was, its sleek coupé form hav­ing an in­her­ent stylish­ness; ad­mit­tedly on pa­per the Lis­ter­ine liv­ery sounds like a bit of a mess – mint green body with bright yel­low lower sec­tion, M-Power tri­colour stripes on the rear quar­ters, black bonnet with huge Lis­ter­ine dragon mu­ral – but in re­al­ity it was fan­tas­tic. With the leg­endary Tim Har­vey at the wheel, how could it lose?

This would be a great one to try if you’re run­ning a new-wave BMW project (or, of course, an E36), and it’d be a tip-top way to show your neigh­bours that you’re pas­sion­ate about oral hy­giene.
