The Ermini Seiottosei made its world premiere at this year's Geneva Motor Show and is styled after the legendary Italian Barchetta-type sports cars of the 1950s. Only a limited number of the new Seiottosei will be manufactured.

The Florentine brand turned to Alcantara and its art director, Giulio Cappellini, to produce a unique, prestigious feel and appearance for the car's interior. A special three-dimensional technique distinguishes the Alcantara seat centers with a tailor-designed horizontal-stripe motif.

"For its new Seiottosei, Ermini chose to upholster its interiors in Alcantara," said Giulio Cappellini. "Seiottosei is a super-sports car that's also elegant and beautifully designed. Alcantara naturally proved to be the ideal interior-upholstery material.  Its versatility and inherent durability allow us to combine a classic look with state-of-the-art technology."

Cappelini noted that Alcantara provides car makers with a unique combination of technical and functional performance features such as durability, light weight, grip and breathability. 

The Seiottosei is offered in traditional Ermini Red with a chestnut interior.  Other color schemes also will be available to further customize the exclusive Seiottosei offering.The Ermini Seitottosei will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show, March 6-16 in Hall 2 -- Stand 2042.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
