Ferrari road cars were originally targeted at the rich and famous and were the ultimate in luxury, as well as having a racing pedigree. Croc and aligator skin is meant to be a higher quality than normal calf leather, and I have aligator/croc skin straps on a couple of my watches.

The croc skin interior is not for me, but if that's what the buyer wants then why not? I've seen much more tasteless interior trims. Personally, I would go for a carbon fibre interior with standard leather Daytona style sports seats.

+1 to everything you said, Archie

I wouldn't do it, to me it would also be CF interior with tan leather, maybe some red stitches

+1 It is a little much but overall not bad, I have seen some real gaudy interiors and this is not bad.

I could live with that, except for the centre console and the steering wheel. Would be better if it was 'Rosso' Croc Skin...




j/k!!
