    I kind of like it too! Someone spent some serious coin on that one.

    I have the same car but with plain black interior :)

    Did any of the Tonkin family end up in Florida? :D

    That's the classic Ron Tonkin combo, with a Miami twist.

    I saw this car in Ft Lauderdale in a showroom a couple blocks from the dealership in 2015(?) for sale. $400k

    concours

    edit— these Picts don’t do it alligator justice.

    In 2009 there was a white 430 spider with alligator interior. It was a $250k option

    Wow..... that does elevate the interior.. I cant believe Ferrari made it special order! Im pretty sure its not legal anymore so it makes it that much more valuable...... on a side note the original owner had one AMAZING car collection

    Dash, roll bar, and visors are a little much. With those left alone IMO it would be the right amount of an upgrade. Nice. Took some nerve to order it. Kudos.

    Nice! Great CF too. Now if it had alligator headers, it would be worth every penny.

    Only 441 miles since new. Did the gators give their lives for nothing?

    God that's awful.
    Lovely exterior colour but only worth buying if you can build the cost of a nero interior replacement into it.

    Difficult to put a price on tacky and cheezy. Some would have to be PAID a lot to be seen in that thing.

    I'd have to agree with some comments here , this looks horrible. Just doesn't fit the car. Looks like a , "MTV pimp my ride" car....

    Highly doubt that it's real croc or gator. Most likely simply an embossed leather. I have samples in my shop of all kinds of embossed leathers-- and all colors. Not my thing but also not my car...

    It’s real. It was a very expensive $154k option on the original car, per the previous auction listing.

    Cost enough alright. But I seriously doubt real croc or gator would hold up very long. To add just because it cost $154K as an option doesn't necessarily mean that it is reflective of the costs-- just reflective of what the perceived value would be to the purchaser. To add... if it is truly real then the embossed samples I have look incredibly similar. And to be sure the embossed stuff is not cheap either.

    This is real crocodile. How does it compare to what is seen in the car above?
