I just knew somone would post a picture of this tat.... sorry no offence each to their own obviously, but I had to laugh at the letter in this month's EVO where a reader had a right a go at the previous letter of the month which (IMO) critisced the GTR interior...

This thread is about beauty..not function, not gadget quantity, a bit oft craftsmanship...but mainly the architecture, the use of colour and material...it should have photos of interiors which actually distract you from the road, and not in a shielding your eyes from the mass of info and lights and badly intersecting bits and pieces, material types all fighting for your attention... hurl

my vote? err....

I hate the dash of the 5 series, the dash is too up right if you know what I mean. I like BMW simple designs but not this one, lol. M3 CSL is good tho

Too many modern cars are too fussy and cluttered. I think the Cerbera has it pretty much nailed - everything is sited for the driver.

But that's a very fussy and very cluttered steering wheel!
What about the loose carpet and worn trim. Come on we all love our own cars but how does that compare to a Zonda.
Very well I'd say lick. The Zonda I have a love/hate relationship with - sure it does ooze passion and pride of workmanship, but it's way way way too busy and over the top, there must be a thousand different materials, textures and colours all in that tiny space.

The Cerbera manages to be swoopy, sinister, space age, leftfield and well resolved, intimate and businesslike at the same time. One of the greats of all time and to me Nick Coughlan will always be a hero for creating it. thumbup

Of course that doesn't really excuse some of the trim colour combinations owners specified...
yes wot he sed!

Cerb gets the thumbup here too!
Excellent! Have another one then cloud9

Quick, jump on the Cerbera bandwagon. We always win this debate guys.

Whichever way you cut it, despite the stereo, that is one beautiful place to sit...no mainstream manufacturer would dare be so different or imaginative..

just stunning IMO... will never be beaten:

+1 - IMHO one of the very best. Mine's on 98K,
eight years old and I'm still waiting for the first
rattle or squeak.

Austere yet solid, I think. Just how I like it.

You can keep your Binatone-style speedo chrome rings and
Amstrad-style brushed aluminium stripes as merely an attempt
at decoration, but in reality it's just dreck that you will
tire of after a few years.

And thinking about it, cream or butter-yellow footwells
are worth avoiding too.

I agree, it is tat, it's garish, and plasticky, i'm just a full blown product of the playstation generation apparantley! smile

Albeit a tad out of my current allowance, a nice mix of gadgetry and meaningfulness would be;

Maserati Boomerang, while a concept car, is still worthy of a mention.

Always liked the Morgan interior as a bit of a modern classic:
I love the design, but the airbag wheel, modern shift level and radio spoil it for me.
I absolutely agree. Morgan was caught between up-dating an icon and having to install contemporary elements to meet modern safety standards. Dealers won't remove the steering wheel but aftermarket boys will replace it with something more in character. Then again, the exterior of the car is not a fully successful reinterpretation of a classic Morgan. It's a bit of a curate's egg.

Completely agree about the wheel and stereo, I couldn't find a picture with a decent replacement. I saw a Aero 8 at the Prescot hill climb with a wheel trimmed in the same (or very similar) leather to the interior with the central spokes machined in the same pattern as the dash

Pics?
