Well all the images look WOW, But there is soemething about some images, which dont look real. Looks like touched up lot with photoshop. i wonder if those are camera work.

The first best cockpit i saw which was made from fibre in india was the 800's. Also remember the 118Ne , standard 2000 and contessa classic which had some wooden strips and looked posh those days. i remember my dads fiat having 3 meters in the middle, one for AMP, we never use this in todays car anymore, i dont remember the others, because fuel and temp gauge used to be behind the steering dash itself.

Well in recent launches, I think vento's cockpit is pretty plain comparing to verna's. Any idea of the new Cruze interiors with black/red combination has the dashboard color been changed. Also i loved the previous i10 dash better than the newer grey one, subjective anyways.

For me its the XJ, the most beautiful and finely finished dashboard I have ever seen. It has no plastic gimickiry, just a combination of the finest wood, leather, metal and carbon. I dont think any car at twice its price has such a well appointed dashboard. Im not being in awe of marketing pics on a brouche but from first hand experience (NO, I do not own one, just was lucky to be allowed to see and play around). Not just the materials but just the way it has been lit, not too bright but highlights the silhouette of the interiors, even the friggin metal ac vents glow, the tft dash, dual view screen.......Blisss

The Spyker C8's interior is a wonderful place to be in. The quality and material is exquisite, right from the four-spoke steering-wheel, the scrumptious leather, the aluminum inserts and that wonderfully designed exposed-gearbox.

All Paganis come with beautiful cockpits too. All variants of the Zonda and the brand-new Huayra have interiors that are so exquisitely crafted, that they'd give any business-class frequent-flyer a complex.

Just like what soccerfan said, I don't think Linea's and Punto's interiors are so bad. Infact in the night they look pretty good. In Linea the two LED's near the ceiling light gives an orange ambience to the interior of the car. Here's a pic that I took.

@GTX007 : nice pic of the Linea cockpit at night.

Another great looking cockpit is from the 2010 Aston Martin DBS Volante. The leather upholstery just oozes class:

I guess these are painted dashs. Some of them are actually quite nice while others are a bit too loud. I wonder how they look at close quarters.

I would probably crash into a tree after driving for a few hundred meters, with all those ultra bright neon-like glowing interiors which would blind me

+1, didn't like any of the color combos!!
I like the Cruze's cockpit the most, Civic comes a close second!

The Bugatti Galibier, my favourite.


For the mango man, I think cruze and ANHV are pretty good looking

Ya thats true, But we can always choose some sober colors, i think going forward the multicolored dashboard trend is going to come up, be it in leather or in fibre. i wonder how they would reflect off the front glass. Its already started with figo.

@ RacerM

Agree, Those aftermarket interiors look over the top, none of them are subtle or appealing.

I for one prefer the sober cockpits. Honda Civics, Cruze, Audis or the Aston Martins are more to my liking.
The Pagani cockpit is a bit too BLING (IMO). Not something that i would want. Hey, not that I can afford a Pagani .
Even the Kitup work on the Alto is a bit too loud for my liking.

The H1 cockpit is, Umm, trying to find a word. Its un-describable.
