The Matte Marauder uses the same decal as the Neon Knight with very different results. The Huntress decal combined with a matching Black 2nd Paint Finish creates unforgettable Crimson pinlines around the body of the vehicle.

#4 The Magic Cloud with Ombre Decal

Pull a win out of your hat with the Magic Cloud.

The Magic Cloud is a budget-friendly Nexus design that looks more expensive than it is. The Optic wheels are not one of the most expensive wheels in Rocket League and it should be a breeze to find all the items for this car.
