The engineers at Nissan seem to have been swept up by those annoying pre-Thanksgiving Hulk promos on USA, as they've just announced a new kind of paint infused with a special resin that heals itself from scratches a la that green monster with a heart-of-gold. Although we doubt that cars coated with this new tech would weather a nuke as well as the Hulkster did, Nissan claims that most scratches will disappear in a day to a week, and that compared to regular paint, this new super-paint only suffers one-fifth of the damage from car washes. Marketed as "Scratch Guard Coat" (they better hope it works better than rustproofing), the new paint will debut in the near future on an unnamed SUV.
