Snakeskin Bodied Citroen A Close Approximation Of An Absinthe High

Illustration for article titled Snakeskin Bodied Citroen A Close Approximation Of An Absinthe High

After the fur filled car, we thought we'd seen the worst of automotive personalization. A car covered with animal bits is not only a PETA nightmare, every version we'd seen involved slapdash construction. And then we saw this Citroen Saxo. Ignore the body kit and the two-door suicide doors. Ignore the rims, paint, hydraulics. Ignore, if you can, the speakers and entertainment system. Set these trivial observations aside and take time to realize this little euro hatchback is covered in snakeskin. Seriously. Actual snakeskin that has been sewn into the body panels. According to Car Styling Tips, snakeskin doesn't shrink or crack like leather, and is therefore ideal for this kind of conversion. We want to hate it so much but at this point, we're still in awe of the craftsmanship that went into making this a functional vehicle.

@Nurburgringer: I am not a fan of the anise flavor so I only had about 2 sips before I passed... However, my buddy finished most of the bottle and said, while he didn't see anything crazy visually, he had a very strange type of drunk... he even went for a walk (with his girlfriend going as well to make sure he was ok) because he felt like doing so. When was the last time you wanted to go for a walk, when you were drinking??
