Alcantara for More People

Alcantara for More People

Posted Image

Chrysler, Cadillac and Mercury will start offering suede-like Alcantara leather in certain sports edition models next year. Alcantara is best known for its use in performance cars like the BMW M3 because it holds drivers in their seats better than standard leather. It’s easy for us to guess that Chrysler’s SRT models and Cadillac’s V series will see Alcantara, but we’re mystified at which Mercury interior will get such treatment. Perhaps it will be one of its SUVs, like the Mountaineer. That seems like a bit of a waste to us.

The Mountaineer already has this very cool terry cloth-like insert. A similar patter in alcantara would be sweet.

right now i'm just fascinating myself by saying "Alcantara" really slowly in an Indian accent...

That's not an M3 CSL in that pic, but all the alcantara accoutrements in the CSL are sooo hot.

I'm planning on wrapping my pillars, rear shelf, and headliner in black alcantara in time (similar to the M5)...It will look so good.

Variance, I'm mad at you for posting that picture of the superior previous gen 3 series interior.

now i just get upset again at how BMW changed it to some really generic lame upright dash layout.
