Black door handles? Oh no!
Firstly it reminds me of the old unpainted plastic ones, and secomdly, if designers are so short of ideas
to enhance the car that they resort to this , then no wonder they can’t inspire buyers who ‘just have to
have one’ because of looks alone.
Same for the black exterior mirrors, why do I want my eyes drawn to them by contrasting colour.
My eyes should be drawn to an extroadinarily beautiful body. Not chintsy details.
Then there is the “carbon fibre look” seat fabric? This truly bizarre.
Carbon fibre is a transformational structural material.
How does that relate to a seat fabric.
Do we see carbon fibre look dress fabric?
There is so much to like about this car,
pity the final edition could not have come up with some “really special” upgrades.
The yellow looks close the Yellow from the R170, but not identical. What do people think?
