The interior is full of leather, alcantara and carbon fiber. The nicely bolstered chairs help keep you tightly in place on the track when your right foot seeks the floor. The stitching has a quilted pattern in it and has colored accents which helps to keep the interior for looking too stark.

The lighter weight body also helps for better handling and quicker braking. An improved suspension is used to further aid in quick cornering.
