Speed is critical in the cockpit, too. 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. 30,000 racing victories were not achieved by engine power alone.
Durability, stability and resilience. These are the essential ingredients for materials in a sporty environment. It is an environment dominated by Alcantara, leather and interior parts in Galvano Silver as well as brushed aluminium. Here, 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 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 rooflining and C-pillar trims are also finished in Alcantara.
