Bentley Continental GT "SS" by Dartz – Click above for high-res image gallery

Snakeskin? What snakeskin, you ask? Look closer, because while it may not be as in-your-face as the treatment on those cowboy boots you spotted while on vacation in the Southwest (or the tights on those girls from Jersey), this Bentley is literally covered in the stuff.

The snakeskin texture on the Continental GT you see above is carried out by Dartz, the same Russian firm behind the Prombron SUV. Fortunately, having apparently learned from the whole whale-foreskin debacle, the snakeskin treatment is applied as a pattern to a white vinyl wrap that gives the Bentley a unique texture. Along with it, Dartz has also applied white alloys, blacked-out brightwork and smoked tail-lamp lenses for a decidedly shine-proof look.

The same treatment carries on to the interior, and Dartz calls the finished product the Continental GT "SS" – a presumable reference to the snakeskin theme, while nodding to the similarly-shaded Continental Supersports. And while it may not be everyone's proverbial cup of tea, in this case we can say at least it's not whale penis.

      Martha Quinn is calling and she wants this thing. For me, I'll pass. I didn't like "whiteout" of the The 80's and still don't like 30 years later.

      How long until this is in an episode of Cribs?

      Ugly as sin - please refrain from promoting and sharing terrible modifcations to otherwise interesting automobiles.

      I don't understand why anybody would ever want this.

      In Soviet Russia, snake covers YOU.

      I like it too. From far away, it looks like a matte finish. From up close though, it looks like the thing is alive. Eat your heart out peta!

      Call me crazy but I actually like the pattern the snake skin makes.... perhaps it would be better if it was a custom paintjob like that? Still for looks, it looks pretty cool.

        It's funny how you can be downrated by expressing your own opinion on this website. No I just think they look hideous? Problem, officer?

        Those wheels look hideous.

      No whale penis leather, no care.
