London’s instantly recognisable architecture runs around the entire interior, with artwork depicting the Houses of Parliament, The Shard, The London Eye, The Gherkin and Tower Bridge, among other landmarks gracing the car.

Each of the four door cards have been designed to feature a different collection of iconic London buildings, and small red London buses feature in some of the veneers for an extra visual link to the British capital.

Each piece was cut by hand and carefully placed into the American burr Walnut background with exceptional precision – and several of the pieces, such as The Gherkin, contain shards of Mother of Pearl to give texture and colour to the artwork.

Chief Designer at Overfinch, Tony Fox, said: “I wanted it to look like a sketch and a piece of art, not a standard veneer.”

“The key to this was capturing London in a way that really resonates; people view and interpret it differently but all recognise London at its vibrant best.”
