A wealthy Frenchman came up with an idea to make his $200,000 Ferrari even more luxurious — he paid for it to be wrapped in leather.

The man commissioned Latvian luxury car customisation specialists Dartz to give the Ferrari F430 a black leather finish.

Dartz owner Leonard Yankelovich said it took three of his staff 16 days to apply the leather and finish, the Daily Mail reports.

The leather was real but was "something in between" leather and vinyl.

Mr Yankelovich would not reveal how much it cost.

Dartz has previously made headlines for creating a $1.5m bulletproof SUV with seats made from whale foreskin.
