However, the leathers of the Poltrona Frau brand are not just limited to exclusive furniture items; they can also be found in automobiles, aeroplanes and yachts. As a tribute to the 100 years of the Italian company, Volkswagen has now upgraded its flagship with leather from the Poltrona Frau company: the Phaeton Exclusive Concept.

Multicolour leather upholstery and Alcantara roofliner
The full leather interior (“Agata” type) implemented in the Phaeton by Poltrona Frau is one of the most luxurious that has ever been fitted in an automobile. Designed in a leather named “Silkway Beige” are the seats (front seats with electric 18-way adjustment), door inserts, package tray and centre armrest (front).

Meanwhile, leather surfaces of the dashboard, centre console, upper door panels and frames, as well as the borders of the floor mats are all upholstered in the contrasting colour “Anthracite”. Coordinated with this is the Alcantara roofliner in “Alabaster White” / “Silkway Beige”; even the bootspace is decorated in this colour and material combination. All relevant add-on parts are also painted in “Alabaster White”.

Volkswagen R GmbH exclusively applies piano paint (“Black”) to the wood accents or the “extended wood pack” offered in the interior. Piano paint is also used for the first time on the climate control panel in the rear.
