Now that the design team has finished sketching out the new interior of this Ferrari 458 Spider, Carlex is ready to let their mechanics and sewing team take over and complete the project.
Let’s face it, there really isn’t anything wrong with the cabin of the 458 Spider, especially when stock. While some tuners can go overboard with extremely colorful materials, Carlex tend to get most of their builds right, especially contrast-wise.
This car came into their shop with an all-black interior, which obviously matched its dark exterior quite well. However, another color that works wonders next to black is red, and that’s exactly the theme they’ve gone with here. Actually, it’s a red & black combo to be more precise.
Dual tone leather splits the edges of the seats while the Alcantara middle offers that slightly different look and texture that so many tuners and manufacturers love to use on their supercars.
More Alcantara made its way on the upper right part of the dashboard, whereas everything else is basically a split between either red or black leather, working around a few dark plastic surfaces – like on the steering wheel, center console, air vents and basically all the buttons.
If this looks at all familiar to you, it might be because last month Carlex came out with a very similar interior design, except that it was for a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, not a 458.
