Ferrari is Experimenting with Faux Leather Automotive Upholstery

At this year's Frankfurt auto show, Ferrari debuted a new automotive upholstery option from Maranello that replaces its traditional ultra-smooth leather interior.

As a leader in automotive luxury, it's significant that this new synthetic faux leather Mycro Prestige upholstery is being installed in models like the F12berlinetta and a California T. While faux leather is often thought of as less desirable than authentic leather, this new material is described as "the most convincing faux leather in the business" that won't fade or crack over time. To complete the outfit, Ferrari also sells matching Mycro Prestige golf bags and luggage to complement the car interior.

While Ferrari simply set out to develop a sportier version of its classic leather automotive upholstery, the faux leather option will definitely appease vegans and animal rights groups.
