Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps of an SL facelift covered in latex. The project was done for the sake of fashion and as you can already imagine it’s just a marketing stunt.
The car was covered in latex by Japanese designer Atsuko Kudo in order to promote the Autumn/Winter 2016 Fashion Campaign and Film. And a latex covered car makes perfect pair with a girl dressed in latex. As a result, next to the car appeared Natasha Poly, an outstanding supermodel.
