Velveteen Ferrari

Some people have taken the term ‘luxury car’ to the next level – as this Ferrari 599 GTB wrapped in black velvet proves.

The owner of this Ferrari, that was recently spotted cruising around London, must really want his car to look (and feel) luxurious. Either that or he is a really big fan of Allanah Myles’ 80’s hit, ‘Black Velvet’.

Unusual finishes are not uncommon though. In the past few years we have seen many a supercar in matte finishes for example. The matte trend it a high and many manufacturers, including Lamborghini, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and even Hyuandai started offering their luxury cars in this trendy finish.

However, this fashion forward Ferrari is not the first to be wrapped up in velvet. There has been a selection of sports cars and supercars that have surfaced, sporting the same high-end material.

Check the video below to see the pristine velveteen Ferrari in action:

This Ferrari might look voluptuous in it’s velvet, but the actual car is just as impressive. Although the Ferarri 599 GTB has recently been replaced by the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, this model is still just as amazing.

It features a 6.0 liter V12 engine and produces 612hp and can hit 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds. The top speed of this supercar is a highly impressive 330km/h!

Whether the owner is a fan of 80’s music or simply wants to reflect the impressive inside on the outside, this velveteen Ferrari is pure swag!

The Edition Exclusive package is available for both the coupe and convertible models. It has Oxide Silver mirrors and 18-inch V-spoke Space Grey alloy wheels.

Interiors get distinct with features like Dakota leather seats in pearl grey or Black with contrast stitching. Unique floor mats with color-coordinated piping goes well with the leather upholstery as well as the Bamboo Grain Anthracite wood trim.

On the other hand, the M Sport Edition looks more sober with features like 18-inch Ferric Grey alloy wheels in double spoke design, black painted mirrors, a body shade diffuser, and an M sport suspension.

An exclusive shade for the car is offered in Silverstone paint finish from BMW M3. Inside, we have the same Dakota leather sport upholstery, an M steering wheel, Aluminum Glacier trim and distinctive floor mats with blue piping.

Both of the items will be hitting the market this fall. And we are ignorant about the price for now.
