Latest Mustang Project By Carlex Design Is Surprisingly Tame

If you live outside of the United States, Mustang ownership tends to become even more special, as American muscle cars aren’t that widespread in the rest of the world.

It’s no wonder then that European tuners such as Carlex Design are more than happy to take a stock, latest-gen Mustang and tuning it. In this case, this translates to adding more high-quality, soft touch surfaces – and yes, leather is always the answer.

Indeed, today’s Mustang features a much better interior than any of its predecessors. Where older models were full of hard plastics, this latest one is a lot more “European”, if you will. As for this particular car, it’s definitely on the high end of the custom interior spectrum.

Visually, the red leather surfaces spark a strong contrast to the rest of the dashboard, as well as the dark door panels. It’s the custom seats that arguably stand out most, thanks to their design pattern, while the steering wheel has a red center hub, red contrast stitching and a red stripe on top.

Still, overall this interior is pretty tame compared to other Mustang projects that Carlex has worked on in the past, like this bespoke red and white Roush Mustang cabin, for example. Or this dual-tone beige leather and carbon interior that’s definitely more extravagant than the one pictured here.

    Remove the red from the steering wheel and the center console should be black. Otherwise much better than there usual hatchet jobs. (Smile)

    Looks very good.

    I usually love anything from Carlex but the red on the steering wheel has got to go.

    Should’ve gone with a red rimmed steering wheel rather than the center hub. Besides that I like it. A black mustang with red interior is my favorite combo.

    I like this 100%, including (and I know I’m in the minority on this) the steering wheel.
