Is the interior of an Argentinian 2.3 Ghia 1984 Ford Sierra, 9466 kilometres from new a nice place to be. :?:

Judge for yourself

I once really fancied an Avantime - not so long ago they could be picked up for very little money...

They are powered by the PR V6 ES9 engine, known in a Renault as the L7X. I believe they have a ZF 4HP20 autobox too...

All very desirable :D
Renault have produced some interesting stuff over recent years...
...Avantime...Fluence (and the eFluence, too!)...Talisman...Vel Satis...and all those Espaces (which PSA turned down)

Looks like bling aimed at the deplorable American market.

Or the Chinese market, as they also like a lot of 'toys'. Mind you, it won't take too long for a Chinese M-B EQS like vehicle to appear over there, but it will be denied that it is a copy of the M-B EQS!

With a 1980 Cavalier L you get a nice functional dash.  <br />Wonder what its like when it is lit up at night.

Mathewsons featured a similar Bentley Continental S3, on Series 4 Episode 6 just aired this week.

That one also had an Auto Altimeter, and the other interesting feature the reverse sweep speedo.

Lancia I'm going to hazard a guess...

Definite echoes of the Gamma Berlina there.

Its from this car Zel. It appears from time to time at various auctions. Historics sold it ( 11 06 2016) for £4,704. Historics do a nice line in photos. It then went on to sell for less at SWVA in 2018 £3,250.
It was then sold 31/03/2019 for £5,950 by North Yorkshire Classic listed on here

Of course if we're talking about interesting interiors and Lancia, it's hard not to give the Trevi a mention.

Which while looking absolutely mad and like pure concept car, it actually works very well from an ergonomic perspective when you're in the driver's seat.

Pretty sure that's the same interior our pool cars had too. Wonder if it was a common option on the electric ones? Still miss driving them, the electric drivetrain in a 106 suited town driving so well.

As far as interior photos go, here's one from a couple of years back when I'd just got the Jag and managed to coerce the interior lights into working for the first time.

Would be interesting to take that photo again now as the low light performance of my current camera is better.
