The front part is made of hand-polished aluminum and finished with a clear coating. For the first time, this material is used for the entire front and side panels including the bonnet, the mirror bases and housings, the exterior door handles and the corners of the bumpers, the wings, the doors, and the regions just behind them – the so-called “medallions” (in French). The vehicle’s rear, sill panels and A-pillar trims are finished with dark blue exposed carbon. Traditional calf’s leather is used throughout the vehicle interior. The exterior’s blue exposed carbon is present again in the vehicle interior, perfectly complemented by the seats’ dark blue seams. The eye-catching feature of the interior is the platinum-coated dancing elephant, that is inset in the cover of the rear center box and reminiscent of the hood ornament of the Type 41 Royale. The figure was originally sculpted by Ettore’s brother, Rembrandt.
