Here’s a car that would surely leave PETA activists enraged. Modded by a Latvian tuning firm known as Vipon, this E90 BMW 318i sedan comes completely covered with, and you might need a moment to breathe before you even hear it, crocodile leather.
The company hasn’t yet declared whether the mod used real croc skin (in that case you might need to make a few well-placed calls to get it cleared through your country’s customs’ deptt.) or simply a textured vinyl cover on the car but the result is simply breathtaking.
It may look like a giant bloated anaconda with red nostrils slithering down the road and your kids might not wanna come out from under their beds knowing “this” was resting in your garage but then again luxury does demand a price, doesn’t it?
The 3-Series comes finished with metallic silver shining up the front lip spoiler, side skirts and the rear apron which basically look absolutely gorgeous teamed up with AC Schnitzer alloy wheels. LED lights placed strategically inside the grille and under the front bumper give the bimmer an additional animal machismo.
Definitely not one for the faint of heart, the croc-skin mod sure has upped the bar for luxury tuning worldwide. One wonders what could possibly top this one. Real ivory alloys perhaps!
