Auto Upholstery - The Hog Ring - Complex Dashboard

With their strange curves and abundance of buttons, knobs and switches, some dashboards are hell to look at and even worse to upholster – especially if you don’t have access to a thermo vacuum forming machine.

Our friends over at Jalopnik recently asked their community of car enthusiasts to name some of the most ridiculous dashboards they’ve ever seen. These were among them:

Auto Upholstery - The Hog Ring - Aerospace Lancia Beta Trevi dashboard

Dashboard in an Aerospace Lancia Beta Trevi

Auto Upholstery - The Hog Ring - Aston Martin Lagonda dashboard

Dashboard in an Aston Martin Lagonda

To see the full list, see Jalopnik‘s article “The Ten Most Ridiculous Dashboards of All Time“.

    Aside from looking like a microwave control panel, the Lagonda’s steering wheel looks terribly unsafe. And that wonderful green . . . OK then.

    From a purely stylistic POV, the Aston Martin steering wheel is impressive. And the source article shows a Citroen with a similar design. I’m not sure how it would work in the real world, but it sure looks spiffy.

    Actually, it would make a great design for a ‘futuristic’ car in a movie or something.

  3. Hi colleagues, good piece of writing and pleasant urging commented here, I
    am really enjoying by these.

  4. This post will help the internet users for creating new web site or even a blog
    from start to end.
