That slightly rustic steering wheel is planned to be powered with some pretty cool modern functionalities, such as, for example: a manual transmission cue-ball shift knob combined with a retro tachometer. Now, it isn’t looking so god damn old, right?.
But, the real refreshment, of which will, definitely, your head going to explode off, is the high backed racing-style leather seats that is Recaro fitted, coupled with hand-made head restraints, which is planned to be matched with a plain audio system.
