Only for the records, Alpina was a tanner brand that used snake skin for cars interior.
This fashion did not last long as it was very common in 1928 (many cars in concours d'élégance with Alpina interiors) and rare in 1929, if i can remember well.

There used to be a Hispano Suiza limousine in the Netherlands, found with its original snake interior. It was easily the most uncomfortable seat I have ever experienced, as it had become rock hard. Car now in Japan in museum.
