The 2013 show-car features a slightly different exterior, with the main differences in the rear end surface treatment of the lower section and in the front grille trim.

The most distinctive feature of this concept is however the fullly developed interior – the previous prototypes were hard models with no cabin.

The atmosphere is characterized by the strong and warm contrast between the red tones of the leather and upholstery and the black surfaces of the dashboard and the carbon fiber trims.

The color scheme is enhanced by satin aluminum details, that along with the polished surfaces of the carbon fiber surfaces help lighten the whole.

The design was developed under the concept of a “Human Support Cockpit” and this driver-focused character is underlined by the dominant center tunnel, which integrates a large touch screen.
