A left hand drive Ferrari 599 was seen on Sloane Street in Knightsbridge, London, blanketed with a velvet coating on its outer body. Parked on a single yellow line, it definitely caught the attention of passersby, some of who even halted to click some pictures.

On the streets of Chelsea, London, a Porsche lined with suede was spotted in the beginning of this year. Other sightings include a Bugatti Veyron embedded with porcelain, and a Lamborghini that glows in the dark, both of which were seen at Park Lane.
