They don't even use real leather for the seats, don't expect real carbon fiber

Yes, but will it be real Alcantara? I heard Alcanta ranchers are having a hard time keeping up with demand.

A lot of cars use synthetic leather these days even luxury brands. Which has a few different reasons.

Doubt any car really uses real CF either for their interior trim, most likely just a "vinyl" one layer CF over some plastic backing. I mean the E90 BMW M3 had stitching in it's CF trim... doesn't make much sense if it were 100% CF.

I would have to say that it will be Real Carbon Fiber, but only a thin layer on the the Plastic Structure, similar to the Real Aluminum, which is a thin layer formed over the Plastic Structure.

Of course, they could also go the 100% Carbon route to Charge for and Make a Few Extra Bucks.

That carbon sport interior package is stunning, not because of the carbon but because of the part alcantara seats, very nice indeed. Really hope EU/RHD cars get that interior option but we probably won't !

Some real cool images & info in there, fave has to be that Ruby Ecoboost with the silver 5x2 spoke wheels - that looks awesome!

Are pricing and the online configurator normally released in conjunction with the order guides?

Carbon looks fake to me, save your money and have it wrapped with the 3m Carbon Fiber film, looks and feels like the real thing.

I have that shift knob already and it really feels high quality. Been on the Ford Accessories web site for a couple years. The bottom edge is finished very cleanly, unlike the Ford Performance black shift ball that comes with a really rough cut opening on the bottom that you feel while shifting. This one one feels substantial/solid, where the original and FP ones feel cheap, light and crappy. I combined it with the Barton billet aluminum reverse lockout adapter and get a lot of positive comments. Just feels so much better holding on to more premium materials when you shift.

I agree, too bad that it's probably going to be quite a premium to get "Ultra Suede". Alcantara has to go down in history as one of the biggest wins for marketing types of all time. Take a product invented in Japan and generally looked down upon (artificial suede), move production to Italy and give it a cool name...bingo.
