Every car interior these days needs to be something. Oh, it’s a spaceship. Oh, it’s a lounge. Oh, it’s a fighter plane. Oh, it’s a boat. Screw that. This is what the inside of an Alpine A310 looks like, and it’s just a car. And it’s perfect.

I am, frankly, bored by LED strips and screens and wonders and leather patterns and excitement.

All I want is a ribbed leather seat, a big steering wheel with the metal spokes with the little holes cut out in them, a plethora of easy-to-read gauges, and a straight rod of metal with a little knob on the end to shift gears with. That’s it.

If you’re feeling really fancy, you can have a vertical radio. NOTHING MORE.

Don’t even know where to start? There’s an Alpine A310 for sale on Bring A Trailer right now. Go buy it. Drive it. Love it.

Then give us the good cars.

Imma let you finish but the epitome of car interior is in the W124 Mercedes-Benz, especially a base model 300E.

Your example looks like a French take on the 1980's Camero interior and assembled by drunk Brits on strike.
