We should probably specify that we aren't exactly the biggest fans of the velvet-wrapped car frenzy out there, but we do try to understand the car owners who choose this method of standing out.
The following velvet-wrapped Mercedes-Benz S-Class W221 started out in life just like your “average” S-Class, covered in a non-abrasive paint, but at one point its owner decided that “average” wasn't going to cut it.

He or she then went to a vehicle-wrapping company and came out with the fuzzy velvet exterior you can check out in the following video, taken by British car-spotter dontchuckitson somewhere in London.

We find the result to be as kitschy as all the other velvet cars out there, but the overall shape of the W221, with its bulging wheel arches and cutie patootie front, makes us want to hug it and cuddle with it in front of a fireplace. How about you, guys?
