Pagani Huayra: The steampunk hypercar interior that will blow your mind (pictures)

The Pagani Huayra is a beautiful car on the outside, but its interior is unlike any you have ever seen before. Marvel at the leather, metal, carbon, exposed mechanics, and digital screens. Welcome to the future of yesterday.

The housing for the dials is milled from a single piece of aluminum, a common theme on the Huayra.

The cool, smooth carbon fibre is contrast to the warm soft leather.

Every single component is custom-made for the Huayra, no off-the-shelf switches here.

The view from the driver's seat is unlike any other.

The exposed mechanics of the pedals might not always be visible to the driver, but no effort has been spared to make them look awesome.

When you first stick your head inside it's hard to believe that this is not a movie prop.

Leather and metal surround each other on every detail.

The LEDs are customisable so you can set your own interior mood colour.

The gear stick is one of the most stunning pieces of automotive design we have seen.

The traditional leather and cutting-edge composite materials work together in harmony to give a blend of yesterday and tomorrow.

The two-part key is shaped like a mini Huayra.

The key is a thing of beauty in its own right.

When you spend this much on a car, you do expect something special. The Huayra delivers.

Luggage space is at a premium.

A suit bag behind the seats helps.

The sound system is described as a personal concert. We don't know why you'd want to listen to anything other than the bi-turbo V-12 though.

The Huayra is named after a South American god of wind.

The switch gear would be at home in Victorian fighter jet. With only a single clutch, though, we wouldn't recommend using the launch control every time you fire up your Huayra.

You are unlikely to forget who made your car but just in case, Pagani isn't shy about reminding you.

That dial in the seat is for adjusting the height, not, as was once quipped at a customer, "a camera."

Even the fonts seem to evoke the memory of a time long gone.

The blend of textures on the wheel alone are a joy to experience.

We did have to ask what the dial was for just in case we activated an ejector seat we were unaware of.

You need never touch the gear stick to drive the Huayra, but why wouldn't you? There is something truly beautiful about the exposed mechanism. It makes changing gear a ceremony.

All cars need practical controls, indicators, windscreen wipers, but few put this much effort into them.

Safety is still paramount in the Huayra, so as unsightly as it may look, the emergency exit handle needs to be there.

It takes a while to learn the Huayra's control layout, but once you get it you're loath to stop playing with buttons.

This stunningly machined lever is there to adjust the steering wheel.

This may be the finest steering wheel we've encountered. Ever.

Leather straps keep the clam tied down. Want to ogle the engine? Undo this bad boy and lift.

Forget using this to change gear, we'd frame it.

This wouldn't be out of place in either a 1950s sci-fi movie, or the year 2330.

But Pagani's made it a reality now. You can, with lots of work, have this on your drive.

When the key's inserted in to the car, the other half has a handy plinth to slot onto. Right next to the carbon fibre ash tray.

Here's the gearstick again. Because beautiful.

And from another angle. How can something so stunning have such a pedestrian job?

It doesn't really matter what they do, you just want to press them.

They may look like eyes, but these are actually air vents.

Have you seen a finer speedo? Stop lying, no, you haven't.

Pagani wanted to make his interiors just as special as the exterior -- after all, if you're going to buy a Huayra, you may as well enjoy it from the inside.

Yes, it can hit 62 mph in around 3 seconds, but if you're stuck in traffic you may as well be comfy.
