Looks more bluette than bosphor to me.   Both good colors.  Italy to USA to Japan to Switzerland and now for sale in Germany.

Who was it that complained that everyone thinks that every wood steering wheel in a Nardi?  It has a rally trip meter thing down there in the corner.  The wash bag in Giulia SS’s always makes me think of an IV bag.

They look fast from the back too.  Lots of rally stickers on the rear drivers side window.

You will be in pretty good shape if you frequently get in and out of a car with these seats.  Cognac they call this color brown.  Sounds more exciting than Rosarita refried bean brown.

Kind of new fangled style belt clips there.  I wonder how much action that ashtray sees.
