Car Customization Specialists Finish Ferrari With Leather Exterior
Dartz Motorz Company, a luxury car customization company based in Latvia, recently announced the completion of their latest project: a $200,000 Ferrari coupe sheathed in a sleek leather exterior. Dartz is notoriously protective of their clients’ anonymity, but they say that they crafted this automotive oddity for a wealthy client on the French Riviera. The Ferrari F430 project took three craftsmen 16 days to complete, and while it is certainly an unusual look, we have to say that it looks very nice.
Dartz is owned by Leonard Yankelovich, who has built a very lucrative business customizing cars for owners with unusual tastes, including a gold-plated Prombons SUV for film star Sasha Baron Cohen and a $1.5 million SUV with whale skin seats.
Yankelovich was very pleased with the leather-clad Ferrari, as was the client. He 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 dispelled rumors that his crew had actually used vinyl for the project. Critics said that leather would be a very impractical finish, as it would not be able to withstand the elements and quickly lose its sheen. Countering their assertions, Yankelovich maintains that his crew used real leather, but hinted that they had used “something in-between” to produce a more lasting finish. He would not reveal the price tag for the unique customization but said that the Ferrari was an example of the craftsmanship and inventiveness of the artisans on his staff.
