Ferrari gets a leather jacket
A wealthy car owner has had his £135,000 Ferrari F430 completely wrapped in leather.
Car customisers Dartz were commissioned by a client on the French Riviera to finish the dream machine in a black leather finish.
The Latvian company previously made headlines after creating a £1million bulletproof SUV with seats made from whale foreskin.
And it recently made three gold-plated Dartz Aladeen Edition Prombons for Sacha Baron Cohen's film The Dictator.
Dartz owner Leonard Yankelovich says: "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."
He says the leather is real and not vinyl, but mysteriously describes it as "something inbetween".
Mr Yankelovich says the price for the job is secret and describes the method used simply as "Dartz know-how".
