    Hello

    This is my very first post. Register to reply, use to be a ghost user until now. BTW I will make my presentation. I promise.

    In fact and very strangely, you can find pictures of interior. In my mind those will not stay too long. It seems interior is in embargo. So make a save

    Regards for Luxemburg.

    I'm going to hold out hope it changes a little bit, it's incredibly tacky. I think the red on the steering wheel throws it off a good bit and makes it look really cheap.t he red seatbelts don't help. For some reason it looks as though there are like 3 different shades of red involved in the trims. That might be what's bothering me about it.

    I like it. But I imagine the trim color if it makes it to production will have to vary based on exterior color.

    I thought Honda would retrofit an e-brake for the CTR. Not sure how I feel about not having an e-brake.

    Good question! Where is the r+ button??!

    Thank your for moving this topic. Was posted as a urgent matter and know it is more visible!
    Good thing they keep 9G seats.

    Anyway I think red colors are here a bit too much particularly on steering wheel. In my mind it definitely not the final revision until presentation. (I hope)

    The passenger seat is black on the seat cushions...they have done that before on prototypes. I think some will change in there before launch.

    Wow... I like it... Not the trim on the dash... But overall it's a good start... Can't wait to see more official pics...

    looks like a little bit

    So this a track focused car but it has an electronic e-brake? Don't know how thats going to work out.

    The ebrake pulls up just like a handbrake would... It doesn't lock unless you're going under 10mph... So it can still kick out if you want it to...

    Those are from the current type r... They might keep them or make some minor changes...

    I'm not feeling the interior.. it kinda reminds me of a guy who popped in ricer seats and pinstriped his dash. I think the interior needs rethought on a 36k sportscar
