The show car also had a road car spec interior using seven Bridge of Weir semi-aniline hides with hand-stitched quilting of a unique design, creating a flowing pattern that evokes a dynamic sense of movement across the seats and headlining, while ‘Z’ embroidery in the headrests and rear parcel shelf added a further flourish. There was also a neat and unique touch to the AM wings badge as the background to the script was picked out in red.
A second pre-production car, shown here sporting the famous 1 AML number plate was also built. This, believed to be the final pre-production prototype, was used during high speed testing at Nardo in Italy. It was photographed as part of the Octane Tour to the 2012 Windsor Concours during September.
