The Berluti Porsche 911 S: Where French Leathercraft Meets German Motoring

Launch Slideshow

For over 120 years, Berluti has been lauded for its exquisite bespoke footwear and exemplary standard of quality. In keeping with the same uncompromising standard, the house developed its signature treatment of exclusive Venezia leathers. Its expert colorists hand craft unique patinas for each item, a technique which lends a distinctive distressed appearance. Similarly, Porsche has been praised for creating legendary sports cars as evocative as they are aesthetically beautiful. With its clean and understated body and minimalist interior, the 911 has become one of the most beloved sports cars of all time. In 2005, the French fashion house expanded its line to include a full line of leather goods, and by 2012 had explored lifestyle offerings with unexpected collaborations. One of which is the first and only car customized by Berluti: the already highly coveted 1973 Porsche 911 S Targa – the last production year of the long hood, narrow bumper F-series 911 – with an interior designed by Berluti. Ahead, discover the details behind a one-off example of this car, currently on offer in Sotheby’s Berluti: The Art of Craftsmanship* online auction. –Andrew Miterko
