The C‑X16 is a car designed for performance, itching to be driven. If you want to take a passenger, well, that’s up to you. By deliberately creating as cocooned a space as possible around the steering wheel, the driver is shrink-wrapped into the cockpit, sitting right at the centre of this world.
The singularity of purpose exhibited by the exterior styling of the C‑X16 is reinforced the moment the door is opened, where driver and passenger are greeted by a dramatic red interior trimmed in the finest materials; Alcantara® micro-suede, anodized machined aluminium, carbon-fibre and dark chrome.
The gears are controlled with a joystick-style gear lever which could have come from a fighter jet, as could the bank of aluminium, carbon fibre and chrome toggle switches.
Push the red starter button and an aircraft-style start sequence powers up the displays and twin-dial instrument panel, while a touch-screen display gives an insight into every aspect of the car's performance.
