BMW Individual: Rare Embossed Leather

Amongst almost 1300 cars with special upholsteries manufactured by BMW Individual there is a select few which add more spice to an already exclusive colouring scheme.

BMW Individual had on offer two embossed leather types called Cobra and Pablo. Only 3 cars were equipped with embossed leather Cobra - these are located in Germany.

Across the parts that are covered with this special leather one can see a structure similar to the skin of a snake, hence the name Cobra

Two cars came equipped with embossed leather of the type Pablo which is known only from marketing material. Those two cars went to Germany and Greece and have not surfaced yet.
