We would love to say, “please step in!” but that wouldn’t do justice to your first contact with the new 718 Spyder. You slip into it, like a hand into a perfectly fitting glove. Everything fits. Everything is tailored to the driver. Mostly due to the sports car ergonomics, perfected over decades. The elevated centre console ensures a short path from the motorsport-typical small GT sports steering wheel to the shortened gear lever and back. Door pull loops emphasise the puristic sporty interior. You can also forego the audio and communication system, upon request – if you want absolutely nothing to distract from pure driving.
The instrument cluster with the three round instruments (typical of the 718) and central rev counter provide the driver with all the information they need fast. The dial faces are black, the needles and increment markings are white, as are the analogue and digital stopwatch of the Chrono Package on the dashboard. The centre of the rev counter features the ‘Spyder’ logo.
The dashboard trim strips and the centre console are painted in the exterior colour. A leather interior with extensive leather, stitching and Alcantara® items is optionally available. Visual highlight: the dashboard trim strips painted in the exterior colour continue on the doors. An interior package with elements made of brushed aluminium in black is also available.
In conjunction with the leather interior, packages with decorative stitching can create contrast in the interior, upon request. They are available in silver colour, red or yellow and also include the ‘Spyder’ logo on the headrests as well as the door pull loops. The seat belts can also be in matching colours if desired.
Nostalgia for the history of the 718 Spyder: the optional interior package Spyder Classic in Bordeaux Red and black. The colours can also be reflected in the hood if desired, and are complemented with extended items in black Alcantara® and GT Silver Metallic painted trim strips.
The seats of the new 718 Spyder also reflect its sporty appeal. The cover, in all seat variants, is in black leather, the seat centres in Alcantara®. The headrests are embroidered with the ‘Spyder’ logo in different stitching colours according to equipment variant.
