The Interior Of This Modern Ferrari 250 GT SWB Will Make Singer Jealous

Special Editions / Comments

This is absolutely magical.

Ferrari knows how to make a gorgeous car. When the 458 Italia dropped in 2009, so did the jaws of everyone who saw it. It's achingly pretty, but its eventual successor, the F8 Tributo, has lost some of that timeless elegance. Of course, the F8 and even the 458 have nothing on the road car that is arguably Ferrari's most beautiful ever - the Ferrari 250 GT. The RML Group agrees and has proposed a modern interpretation called the RML Short Wheelbase, which obviously takes inspiration from the 250 GT SWB. Just 30 will be built, and each will be spectacularly beautiful from the outside. With such gorgeous lines, you can bet that the interior will be stunning too.

These are the first images that RML Group has released of the cabin, and it's just the right mix of modern tech and classic styling that you'd expect. RML says that this cabin won't be uncomfortable for occupants, regardless of their height. That's because the car offers enough space to fit drivers from 5 feet to 6'6", partly thanks to an adjustable steering column. But that's not something you buy a car like this for. What you expect are high-quality upholstery and magnificent details. Thus, the cabin features bespoke seats that can be finished in your choice of leather or Alcantara. Every single switch and button is also said to have been developed in-house for quality and style. The open-gated manual is a particular highlight,

Head of design, Jonathan Bowen, says, "We had a 'no-plastic' mantra when we started designing the interior, It would have been easy to save tens of thousands of pounds [Sterling] buying off-the-shelf dials and controls, but they would not have met our high standard."

He continues to elaborate by mentioning that the conical dials across the dash are inspired by high-end watchmaking, with every touchpoint finished in either machined aluminum, glass, or leather.

As for the modern touches, you will have access to air conditioning, electric windows, navigation, cupholders, and various storage bins, plus an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that only pops up from the center tunnel when needed. We still have no pricing info, but deliveries start in the last quarter of the year.
