Versace burns rubber

Versace Murcielago LP640

In case you missed it a few weeks ago, Lamborghini launched its Murcielago LP640 in a Versace edition.

The central console, roof panel, seats, lower dash and inside of its doors are all covered in full-grain napa leather using the Greek fret motif (concentric rectangles) that Versace has made famous.

The car was shown at the Paris Auto Show in Isis White, and at Milan Fashion Week in Aldebaran black. The car, which will be produced in a limited edition of 10, will come with a series of Versace Couture (handmade) accessories, according to Lamborghini. (I'm assuming luggage.)

Above is some footage of that viewing that was posted on YouTube by WindingRoad, which also featured photos of the Paris debut.
