Posted by Jayme Mendal on Jun 19, 2012 1:32:00 PM

AutoEvolution.com featured a Mercedes CLS fitted with a crocodile leather interior. According to the article:

"The steampunk interior created for the MINI Countryman by Carlex Design received a lot of attention across the Internet, so we decided to see what other cool project the Polish customized had up its long sleeves.

A quick search revealed they did something extraordinary and unexpected for one of our favorite Mercedes automobiles, the CLS four-door coupe.

We’ve head of all sorts of leathers being used lately, snake skin, ostrich leather and even kangaroo, but it’s been some time since we last saw an alligator leather project. Yes, you heard us right, the hides of those scary reptiles can be turned into luxury interiors for cars, in this case for a Mercedes Benz luxury saloon.

The custom job done by Carlex Design combines normal read leather, black nappa for the seat centers and the expensive Florida crocodile skin for the dash, steering wheel, head rests and accents."
