Lunaz points out that only the best available materials have been used in these cars, in keeping with the stature of the brand and models. For example, rear floormats have been custom made in alpaca wool, a material that is said to be rarer than cashmere, softer than lambswool and is considered highly sustainable.Image Credit: Supplied
