The interior of a sports car is like an athlete’s clothing: it must fit perfectly and feel like a second skin. Only then can human and machine function as a single, sporty entity. To deliver superlative performance, the driver needs information that can be accessed quickly and an interior ergonomics concept that enables even faster use of it.
The requirement is fulfilled by an ascending centre console that places the gear selector within direct reach of the steering wheel, by ergonomic gearshift paddles on the steering wheel itself and by conveniently positioned controls that dispense with unnecessary gadgetry but do open up new possibilities on the racetrack. Over 30,000 racing victories were not achieved by engine power alone.

The instrument cluster with 4.6-inch colour screen provides you with a continuous stream of data from the on-board computer, including average speed and fuel consumption, fuel range and outside temperature, and allows you to view Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM) information as well as the stopwatch of the optional Sport Chrono Package. It also reminds you of your selected communication and audio settings or displays the map of the navigation system – but only for the rare occasion you aren’t on the racetrack.
Durability, stability and resilience. These are the essential ingredients for materials in a sporty environment. It is an environment dominated by Alcantara®, leather and silver-coloured interior parts and brushed aluminium. Here, first and foremost, materials must be practical – and top quality. The fact that they also have the motorsport feel is a welcome bonus.
Alcantara® is easy to grip, wash and maintain. For this reason, it is mainly found in places where there is direct contact: on the steering wheel rim and gear selector as well as on the door handles, door armrests and lid of the centre console storage compartment. The roof lining and C-pillar trims are also finished in Alcantara®.
