While the feature rich interior is dominated by the striking leatherette upholstery in a unique black and white theme and also includes front sports seats and cruise control. This exclusive version has a particular visual appearance with an exclusive Campanella white body colour contrasted by a black roof and door mirror housings. The look is completed with the distinguishing exterior stripe package.
