Develop interior finish to mimic exterior racing stripe
The result is a high end finish which completes the intent for a sporty look and feel for the interior. The center console is the feature decorated trim and is the only interior trim to use aluminum.
"The inspiration of the stripe is from a “Geneva stripe”, found on high grade watch movements. It gives you a magical depth and a high quality “machined metal” feel. The surrounding matte black areas with square rubber dots adds a great deal of sportiness."
