Jim Ayoubi's XC Coupe is a classic example of when a street elite style build evolves into an Elite Street Machine. Jim asked us to come up with an Elite level interior that looked brilliant but was also practical enough to allow himself and 3 other people to cruise the streets on a regular basis in absolute comfort and pleasure.
The result was an interior that was fully customised to suit this request. The front and rear seats are modified VZ Holden Monaro seats that have been cut and reshaped to suit the XC floorpan and rear tubs. The dash is predominantly an original item with some cool modifications, such as recessed aftermarket gauges inset into the original cluster piece. A one piece hand made headlining was constructed and is covered in one piece of leather with embossing and lighting to boot. The floors are also covered in leather and include the same pattern as the doors and seats.
Moulded armrests and custom made speaker pods showcase the door panels and rear trims while the boot area is replication of the cabin, with a secret hatch that allows access to Jim's fuel system and electrical components.
At MotorEx 2015, Jim won the bronze medal for his interior against a very competitive field.
