The British sports car builder released a time-lapse video showing a group of artists using leather scraps to create a leather Vanquish art installation. Looking at it from afar, you can't tell that various pieces of leather were overlaid one another. But when you get up, you can't help but admire the amount of effort put in to create this unique.

Currently, the piece is sitting in the VIP atrium at Aston Martin's headquarters in Gaydon, U.K.
