Thought it would be useful to have a GT thread...here are some possible dash photos....Loving the tartan seats, silver wheel inserts and ???iPhone integration??>

Thanks for the photos, great idea
Can't say I like the interior though
I personally don't like the tartan seats - leatherette seats would look the part and not keen on the white doors with the shiny black dash and a little too much chrome in and around the media player, looking forward to seeing the outside of the car!

Agreed, think in the GT version the dash would look good in a matt finish ? and leatherette seats also the chrome inside would benefit from being a brushed effect....
just my opinion....

Thanks for posting Privatedoc - the only thing missing from the Up GT specifications is a DSG type gearbox. Time will tell though...

Three More....Love the seats personally, yes too much chrome but the car has a rear end to die for...spoiler and diffuser and twin exhausts...gorgeous!












Enjoy!

I notice that they've swapped the instruments in the dash around. There's a large rev counter in the centre, and the speedometer has been relegated to the left dial - the opposite of the standard layout.

Yes, I wouldn't mind one myself. The increased torque lower in the rev range and the extra gear should make for relaxed cruising, when not using the extra performance. I think this version of the Up ispencilledin for some time in 2013.

Only reason I wouldnt get one would be if they brought out a Cross version with 4x4

I would prefer less boy racer styling e.g. chrome. And I wonder what the ride will be like?

That extra gear might mean better economy at motorway speeds.

should be able to get some good power gains from that too... nice remap should show about 125hp... ireckona realistic 150 could be achieved with a few other mods..
be a nippy car with 150hp... still think 108 hp is a little low.. :p

It is still a prototype/concept car....I reckon the way to make it really special is to do the dash in carbonfibre-look or similar.
