Codemasters fully modeled interiors for all of Dirt’s cars — but of course, the interior of this Stratos was never shown to the public, if it existed at all. The artists had no choice but to make it up as they went along, which is probably why the concept in-game essentially lifts the dashboard design from the original Stratos road car.


The result is a jarring mismatch between the forward-thinking exterior, the pillarless split windshield design and the dated analog instrument cluster. Of course, it’s no fault of the developer that the model turned out this way, but it does add to its mystique. Thankfully, it’s forever immortalized in digital form.
