COLOUR AND MATERIALS DESIGNER ANNA-LOUISE CLOUGH EXPLAINS THE QUALITY, CRAFTSMANSHIP AND THE EXQUISITE MATERIALS IN THE 12C.
The quality of our materials, supreme craftsmanship and celebrated attention to detail combine to create peerless supercars that are beautifully engineered and exquisitely finished. Every component we use is sourced from the most exacting suppliers. From the finest, full-grain Nappa and semi-aniline leathers to the bespoke Meridian sound system, everything you see and touch in the car is hand crafted from the finest materials in the world.
Our craftspeople are some of the most skilled and experienced in the automotive industry. To create perfection, they are given the freedom to work every component by hand, ensuring an unsurpassed fit, finish and luxury feel. From the paint teams hand painting every car to the seamstress honing the stitching over a particular shape, every detail is considered and then lovingly worked by hand.
The highest quality materials are crafted by hand to complement the car’s interior design.
Leathers: we offer through-dyed, soft touch premium Nappa leather, superior semi-aniline leather and a range of contrasting perforated leather.
Alcantara: used extensively in motorsport this composite, suede-like material offers extensive grip and creates a refined, sporting look.
Carbon fibre: we create different weights and thickness of weave to compliment the shapes and form of the interior. Lacquered carbon also plays beautifully with light, giving depth and adding dimension to the interior finish.
