Russia: €2 million leather lowrider boasts Bison style

The Russian creator of a unique and exclusive rendition of a Peugeot, covered completely in Canadian Bison leather, showed off his creation in Moscow on Tuesday. The vehicle's fiberglass body, which makes the vehicle 40% ligher than the standard model's body, is coated in hand-stitched leather. The estimated of the car is around €2 million.

The technology involved in processing the vehicle ensures the leather is water resistat and able to withstand extreme weather conditions, including the scorching heat of Middle Eastern summers as well as the severe winters of Russia. The vehicle has a 2.5-litre petrol engine, automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive and a steering wheel on the right side of the car similar to British vehicles.

The car will be sold by the Workshop of Functional Luxury, a group of Russian designers who also extend the service to other vehicles. Maxim Sarmatov, the group's PR Director, said: "We offer this unique service with natural leather to other vechicles, including yachts, boats, and even helicopters."

The group also claim that the vehicle comes with a "lifetime guarantee" and can be cleaned like any normal motor vehicle.
