Pam's right. Asking for a leather-free luxury car these days is like ordering a vegan smoothie in Wisconsin — the shopkeepers give you 20 seconds to walk away before calling the FBI. Anderson, a PETA spokesmodel of late, put in a such a request for a Mercedes G55 AMG, which was denied by the powers that be — who've said all future Mercedes vehicles will be available leather-free in certain markets. It's likely because the G55 is in its final model year before a complete redesign. Still, the elephant-knuckle gearshift delete option should still be available for an extra $4500.
