    While perusing some posts on ferrarichat.com regarding the new 430 Scuderia with its mostly alcantara interior, I noticed someone question whether it would hold up well or soil/pill quickly. Another poster piped up with "just run an electric razor over it every once in a while and voila - good as new".

    Would I really want to do that on my new $180K Ferrari? Probably not. Luggage interior and that is it.

    It's far better to get leather anyways, the people Ferrari / Pininfarina are masters with leather.

    Depends on the car. A for-real track car - no. A daily driver GT car - yes.

    Pininfarina may have a hand in designing the interior but would not be involved at all in the execution/manufacturing - which, more often than one might think, can be underwhelming.
