Russian-Tuned Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Is a Red Crocodile Leather Statement

When choosing the materials and finishes for a car interior, there are plenty of subtle options. However, red (does the color even matter?) crocodile leather isn't one of them.

As a result, when you grab yourself a brand spanking new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and cover its cabin in the material mentioned above, you're making a clear statement."Extrovert" is an understatement when it comes to describing this tuning job. A major one
This is true for the GLE Coupe in the images to your right, with the cabin overhaul coming from Russian aftermarket developer Topcar. The tuner used a simple introduction for this overly extrovert development and yet this managed to explain why such a design came to life.

"We're pleased to introduce our new project, made by special order," the tuner said.

Truth be told, we can't say the interior of the high-riding "coupe" is all crocodile leather. The material is mixed with standard-finish, as well as quilted leather, with these also coming in Red. The same color was used for the Alcantara on the headliner, while the carbon fiber trim is dressed in a darker shade of Red.

Speaking of trim, we must also mention the light veneer found on the dashboard, the upper part of the steering wheel, as well as the doors. The hue of the wood is matched by the piping and the contrast stitching used on the leather.

If we keep in mind the fact that Topcar produces body kits (destined for multiple models, GLE Coupe included) using the "Inferno" label, perhaps the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe owner who commissioned this project simply wanted to go all the way.

Does this mean we'll get to see the German SUV spending its time on the Green Hell? Given the owner's desire to stand, you never know...
