The $165,000 Ferrari That Has A Leather Exterior
This Ferrari got quite the extreme makeover. The owner of this $165,000 luxury car had the vehicle completely wrapped in leather.
An anonymous client on the French Riviera commissioned the luxury car customization specialist Dartz to give the Ferrari F430 a black leather finish.
The company, which once created a bulletproof SUV with seats made from whale foreskin, knew that they could complete the task.
Dartz owner Leonard Yankelovich said: “One of our very rich customers from the Cote d’Azur wanted a leather exterior and knew we could deliver.”
It took three of my staff 16 working days to apply the leather and finish. He was more than happy when he picked it up.
Yankelovich would not reveal how the leather transformation was achieved, saying that it was all “Dartz know-how.”
He said that the leather is real, but described it as “something in between leather and vinyl.”
Dartz was recently employed by the producers of the film The Dictator. The company three gold-plated Dartz Aladeen Edition Prombons for the film.
