Mario Balotelli’s Camouflage Car Allows Soccer Star to Hide in Plain Sight (Photo)

Mario Balotelli has taken his string of strangely awesome behavior to a new level.

On Saturday, the Manchester City striker arrived at his team’s practice facility driving a car that you have to see to believe.

Balotelli had his Bentley Continental GT painted in camouflage colors. The £160,000 ($255,000) car is mostly green, but contains spots of black and brown — just like the standard colors of various military outfits (and hipsters) around the world.

The 22-year-old Italian was frequently spotted around town driving a white Bentley, but he damaged it in an accident last April.

Perhaps he’s getting fed up with all the attention and wants a little more anonymity? Maybe he’s planning some stealth operations? Only “Super Mario” knows the answers.

Regardless of his motivation on thing is clear: this is what’s going on in the streets of Manchester, England.
