Money talks!!!! Of course you can change the interior. But you might want to hold out for red.

Yes this can be done, but as WETPET says....money talks. This will be an expensive change to make. How much red do you want? All leather surfaces and carpets red? Or just change the tan bits over to red? You may get lucky and find a 512TR with a red interior being parted out somewhere...but odds are a professional shop will have to do this work. I have seen a regular Testarossa with a redone interior by a high end shop and the results were stunnning to see. Every seam and joint was perfect, much better than factory....but the cost was in excess of $5,000 too. It sure did look nice though!

Pablo- You worry about the darndest things. Most of us would worry about price, condition, records, originality, etc and all you are worried about is a red interior. I think your priorities might need reordering.

Paint and interior can always be changed. Especially if you have a bottomless wallet. Most of the GTOs have been repainted numerous times, some have even been rebodied two or three times. My favorite Zagato SWB has been four or five different colors. The car is the important thing. Paint and leather are like lipstick and make-up. Change it to make it beautiful in your eyes.

All this "no paintwork' stuff is ridiculous.

There are a few places in the UK that do very good work. Nigel should be able to provide a few recommendations.

I will ask him to give you a call tomorrow.

He can be difficult to reach sometimes.
