A local man has won a nationwide competition - hosted by Auto Express magazine - to design an interior for the innovative new Peugeot 1007.
The 1007 features many innovations including electric sliding doors and an interchangeable interior. The ‘Cameleo’ trim allows customers to personalise the interior of their vehicle with a choice of 12 brightly coloured sets consisting of 18 pieces (including seat cushion covers, air vents, and door trims).
The weekly car magazine Auto Express which regularly attracts over 100,000 readers a week launched the competition in April inviting readers to submit attractive or creative designs for a new interior for the 1007.
The winner, local man Chris Marriot of Colwick Close, Mansfield designed an interior he called Euroscape which cleverly incorporates different European landmarks in a brightly coloured geometric pattern.
The winning design has been made into a complete set of cushions for the vehicle which Chris has had access to as part of the prize. Chris also won a trip to London, with his partner Wendy where between sightseeing visits they attended a photoshoot with the car in front of Big Ben, one of the major European landmarks featured in Chris’ Euroscape design.
Chris said, "The Euroscape design looks even better on the car, and people I have shown it to think it really suits the model. Seeing my idea become a reality gave me a huge buzz."Published 22 October 2005
