Breadvan_update_021: Interior design proposals
The standard interior of the Breadvan Hommage base car is a great place to be. However, to make the vehicle more outspoken and the interior relevant to the exterior design theme, changes are needed. To start with this process, a detailed rendering of the OEM interior functioned as a solid base. This drawing showcases the stock interior and will form the base for our enhancements. Apart from the factory installed sport seats finished with carbon fibre backs, the black on black interior is not overly convincing in colours and materials. The design team has made three different design statements: each featuring both subtle customisations and more bold statements. Exquisite individual details are specifically important in a one-off motorcar interior, as it will be interacted with on a much more close and personal level and especially the tactile experiences are of paramount importance. All switchgear will likely be replaced by handmade metal buttons, whilst the headrests will feature monogrammed logo: the outline of the exterior.
Bold Blue Brute, Burned Black Buff and Rapid Red Racer
The first design features blue Alcantara seats, inspired by the original Breadvan colours. The base car seats also are revived here: featuring a stronger padding, which makes the seats more voluminous and racy. The steering wheel has been re-designed to look sleeker and a new, handcrafted aluminium rear view mirror has been placed on the dashboard. Other customised items are a cleaned centre console and a colour coded rev-counter. The handbrake lever has been subtly changed too, featuring the same blue Alcantara. The second interior proposal features carbon fibre personalising options, such as the instrument panel, steering wheel and dash-mounted rear view mirror. This interior has a complete centre console delete, making way for a Breadvan-typical high shifter, with black leather surrounding tied together by a lace. The few details are red: the centralizer on the steering wheel and door opener within the carbon fibre door panels. A colour coded bright red central rev-counter has been mounted too. The third interior proposal of has red seats, linking to the exterior colour. The raised gear lever in H-pattern, with open linkage reminds one of motorsport heritage. The air vent bezels, switchgear and the bespoke steering wheel are made out of aluminium and the rear view mirror is colour coded to match exterior paint.
