The steering wheel and interior look great.

Never thought I would hear myself saying this, but, so far, I like the C8's interior better than the Ferrari's.

The steering wheel is hideous and leather button above the driver select rubs me the wrong way. A little too prissy for a sports car

Looking at the interior actually gives me hope that there could be a more driver focused C8. If you look at the other sports car makers, there are the base model cars which tend to be the GT/Luxury versions and then they have the performance models like RS, Stradale/Pista and Performante etc etc. Those driver focused cars have super basic interiors and are built to be as light and quick as possible. This shift to a more luxurious interior on the base C8 now leaves room for the upper performance models to be cars that can compete with driver's specials while leaving the base car to those that really just want a GT car. Think of the base C8 as a 488 GTB and the Z cars as the Pista.

i don't get the cover over the shift dial for the mode, maybe just press down for different modes

could that 3rd button be for the top to come down?

Not crazy about the vertical wall on the console but will hold judgement until I see it in person. One thing i'm pretty sure of with all that leather that is not the interior of a 60K car.

I thought about this all night while I couldn’t sleep. I came to the same conclusion on that third button.

The cover is probably to prevent accidentally changing the mode with a bump of the dial. My Mercedes dial is always getting changed because of bumping it, but the last loaner I got had a cover like shown in photo

Leathers going to be cheap soon... you know, with having to kill all the farting cows for the green new deal.

I think I finally figured out where the HVAC comes out. See that satin metallic strip that runs across the lower third of the steering wheel? See those centered little *****, one on either side? That’s two very long, very narrow air vents. Almost stealth-like. Nice! No more array of binnacle protrusions.

Is that a push button with a picture icon just above on the Info Screen?

I believe these buttons and the Mode are strategically place to prevent accidental activation. With that I think we're looking at.

Left - Stabilitrack
Center - Front end lift
Right - ??? Roof activation switch OR a 360 camera view for parking ???

Maybe an emergency open button if they have a behind screen storage area?

Is it the camera angle or is the top half of the steering wheel appear to have a larger radius tan the lower half..

its like the brainiac of steering wheels.


hopefully its the angle of the camera.

not a deal killer but a bit weird

Honestly how often are you really changing from park to drive in a day...I would guess that you use the window switches more and they seem pretty robust and built for the task.

I think the photos are blurred with a "smudge" tool at the top. This would distort the wheels shape.

That is the HVAC directional manipulator control I just mentioned. You can see it's mate on the other side of the steering wheel, just above that CarScoops logo.

The angle and distortion in these photos are why you don’t like the wheel or think the “wall” is awkward or too big. Both will appear to look much better on the 18th and when you finally sit in the car.
