This is really a thing. A Ferrari 599 was spotted in London that upped the ante for automotive ostentation. Some asshole covered the $300,000 supercar with black velvet, which the Daily Mail estimates would have cost another $7,600.

Sadly, this isn't the first car we've seen covered with expensive fabric. A Porsche Panamera was also seen in London with a similar wrap. The Game was seen with a Ferrari F430 wrapped in leather. We sincerely hope this isn't the beginning of a new trend. What's next? Silk? Cashmere? Japanese raw denim? We should probably stop listing these off before somebody takes the ideas to heart.
