Definitely, the US one is hideous though, damn regulations. The Spyker definitely has one of the best interiors of all time in my opinion.

The other steering wheels that Spyker used are Lotus and now Gallardo. The original propeller design can still be had (with some effort), but is best combined with four point seat belts.

About a third of the 37 existing propeller steering wheels are in the US.

Reminds me a bit like the Maserati 300S interior- modest, simple and the only difference was a bit of leather

Sorry don't have any pictures, but I am sure a link will do

There are only 37 propeller wheels?

I was looking at the silver car that was at the NY auto show and it's amazing how great the interior looks and then it's got that hideous wheel and just ruins it.

Chris I really dug that pic of the 365 wheel that you posted the nicest cleanest example I've seen so far.

However I cannot agree that the propeller wheel is hideous. I actually like it. It's something I can imagine steering the Zeppelin with. I'd like you to reconsider the classical features of the wheel? C'mon it will grow on you.

Peace.

Thanks, I'll see if I can find some more shots. Sorry, I wasn't clear about the propeller wheel, I think that is one of the absolute best modern steering wheels out, love it. Due to US regulations the wheel that comes on the car is required to have an airbag, I attached a pic of the hideous wheel.

I think that Chris means that the new Gallardo steering wheel is hideous. He loves the propeller steering wheel. I'm with him.

Oops, our posts crossed. I see that you don't like the Lotus steering wheel (no airbag).

Yeah, I've never seen the Gallardo, it's not too bad, but I can't stand the lotus one, neither are close to the propeller though.

Yup I see what you mean......That is not attractive. My apologies for doubting your obvious superior taste in the propeller wheel.

I have forgotten to post some of my own wheels, so here is a few. Lets also see some interiors with wheels.

I tried making this one my own but the price kept going up. It finally set a new record.

Chris you have captured the pure essence of the Ferrari wheel, great shots digging the jewels behind the wheels.

Glassman another great wheel. Keep em coming.
