The White Sox didn’t pick upAlexei Ramirez’s $10 million option, but that didn’t stop the free-agent shortstop from blowing $25,000 on a paint job for his car.

Apparently unable to pick just one color for his2016 F-TYPE Jaguar, Ramirez instead made the vehicle a chameleon.

According to TMZ Sports, Ramirez had the sports car painted by graffiti artist Rene Turrek using thermochromic paint, which can change appearances based on the temperature.

When the car is cold, it turns black. But when it’s warm, it’s red, white and blue striped.

Ramirez batted a career-low .249 in 2015, a year after being named an American League All-Star.
