Can any one help.
I am looking for pictures of the interior of the car.
I am about to spec the car and I am struggling on interior colours etc
I am going for a carbon black, stealth wheels etc, orange brake calipers, carbon spliter front and rear, carbon mirrors, carbon engine bay and covers, light weight wheels (5 spoke), carbon interior etc
I am not sure if to go for full leather interior or sports interior with 1/2 leather and alcantra ?
I like the orange stiching, I am not sure if to go for an orange leather combo ?

Any help or pictures would be appreciated.

Even if it is totaly different.

Thanks Knobber

Knobber. If you are in the UK visit the mpc. Leather interior is better than the carpet option. Discuss.

Have you taken a look at this video on the forum from the Dallas dealership? Sounds very much like what you have spec'd out.

Honestly, I would, in retrospect, avoid the contrast stitching - it reflects mightily off the windshield. On the plus side, it looks simply gorgeous.

Full Orange!!
That's not Full Orange - this is Full Orange! :eek:



Spotted at the Boca Raton Concours - sure we'll see a few more pics as the weekend progresses. The owner must have stock in Oakley or something. :D

Perhaps I should have been able to guess this was Michael Fux' car. His cars are always attention grabbing in color and style.

I cant imagine how bad that dash reflects of the windshield :eek:

I saw a car last week with tan dash inserts and the owner was complaining about it in a huge way. Its why Ferrari stopped offering it here in the states.
Im going with contrasting stitching, i hope its not the same

I have the orange stitching against the black full leather dash. Yes, you can see the reflection on a bright day, like a faint orange railroad track running horizontally across the the middle of the windshield, but I don't find it distracting in any way. Full orange dash would be a different story though.

Drivers who can see the dash reflection in the windshield need to up the pace to force themselves to look and thus focus far ahead along the road. Colin Chapman said that the only way to concentrate is to drive like a bat out of hell........it's the same for Mclaren screen reflectionitus.......mash de peddle man! Simples.

Another photo from the Dupont Registry - I believe most of the cars in this shot belong to the same owner. Certainly the Bentley's do and the 599 GTO and 599 Aperta in the background.
