Leather Dashboard?

I have a 147 at the minute but have pretty much decided I need a GTV instead!
I'm looking on the autotrader website and spotted a car with red leather seats, and the dash was covered in red leather as well.
All of the other cars with pictures have a black dash but I can't tell if it is leather or plastic.

Does a GTV with leather have a leather covered dash, or would this have been an option or only available on certain models or at a certain time?

Re: Leather Dashboard?

According to AR publication 04.9.5115.52-A- (dated) 1/2001:-

"The Alfa GTV also offers you the beauty and prestige of two special trims: Blue Style and Red Style, according to the dominant blue or red colour of the leather covering the seats, facia, door inserts and door pockets......."

Sounds as though it could be leather but it is a little ambiguous!

Re: Leather Dashboard?

Yep, sounds like the 'Red Style' pack. Normal red leather came with a black plastic dash and doors, 'Red Style' has red leather seats and red plastic dashboard and doors.

Only problem I've found is that all the different bits of plastic on the dash age differently, so mine doesn't have two bits that are the same shade of red!

Re: Leather Dashboard?

Eh.. but it's not BAD is it? Very nice dude...

My GTV has "Black Style" interior (black seats, door inserts and dash).
