Being a car freak for over two decades, I love every aspect of auto customization, but one area stands out: the interior. There’s something magical about tweaking the inside of a car in a way that reflects your style and personality.
In this article, you’ll see high-end custom car interiors that will inspire you to take your ride to the next level.
But I’m sure that besides finding effective customization ideas for your truck or car’s interior, you also want to know how much you’ll have to spend. So, let me answer that question first.
What is the Cost of a Custom Car Interior?
A full custom interior can cost you anywhere from 10 to 50 grand. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Attention to detail is crucial when personalizing the cabin of your vehicle. Small changes can make a big impact.
On the other hand, if you have a bigger budget, you’ll save money by not paying a designer. Looking at the different custom interiors will help you choose the best colors and create your own design so you only pay for the labor.
What Are the Custom Car Interiors on My List?
When it comes to custom interiors, there’s no shortage of inspiration out there. That’s why I’ve included a variety of old and new vehicles from different automakers. From sleek, modern designs to vintage-inspired styles, these will flow your creative juices. Let’s get started.
1. 2018 Tesla Model 3 Interior
You might’ve seen this Tesla Model 3 on Instagram or in major magazines. It goes by the name “Casper” and belongs to my man, CJ Cardinalli, the Godfather of Aftermarket Tesla.
Believe it or not, CJ’s Model 3 has been a DIY project from day one. After winning all the awards one can think of, Cardinalli started his own company to help fellow Tesla owners build their dream rides.
In fact, a major part of the interior mods are from his company, CEEJ Customs. While the trunk and frunk might be too much for some, you can definitely get some cool interior ideas from CJ’s outstanding SpaceX-themed Tesla Model 3.
2. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Interior
While the SRT Grand Cherokee has plenty of muscle under the hood, the modern Mopar’s cabin surely needs more style. This custom Jeep interior is done at the EU-based shop Vilner Garage.
Redone with high-quality materials and creative design, the customized interior feels much more cozy. It looks just right and nicely complements the potent 6.4 HEMI powerplant.
Vilner has chosen a combination of nappa and perforated leather for the doors, seats, center console, and armrest upholstery. He used carbon fiber to enhance the trim and steering wheel, custom stitching, and red seatbelts to spice up the black interior.
3. Audi RS6 Avant Interior
This Audi RS6 Avant belongs to the popular YouTuber Auditography and boy, this thing has a custom car interior at its finest. In about two months, the guys at Ozone Qatar have done a killer job.
I’ve been following this project for a while, and now that the one-of-one interior is finished, it’s a must see. The attention to detail on this modified Audi RS6 Avant is nothing but outstanding.
Only the best quality European leather, alcantara, and stitching threads have been used for the upholstery in a beautiful color combo to match the Meissen blue exterior. The only plastic parts that remain untouched are the buttons.
4. Honda S2000 Interior
Responsible for this beautiful Honda S2000 custom interior is GB Design. While some may think GB stands for Great Britain, that’s not the case. The shop is located in a very small town in Bulgaria.
While GB Design is a one-man operation, the owner seems to be great at understanding what his customers want and very savvy in each process a custom car interior requires. This Honda S2000 is a perfect example.
Looking carefully at the photos, you’ll notice that the Honda S2000 interior is completely transformed. Fine leather, alcantara, and perforated vinyl are the materials utilized for the custom upholstery, complemented by blue stitching, and only the center console is covered with carbon fiber.
5. BMW 7-Series E38 Interior
Those who follow my blog know I’m crazy about old BMW models. I also have a 7-Series E38, but mine came with a bone stock interior in pristine condition, and I’m keeping it that way (for now).
The V12-powered E38’s interior you see in the photos is far from stock, and it gives me some ideas. A lot of custom work has been done here, but at the same time, the artist (Atanas Vilner) preserved the classic BMW spirit.
Beautifully redone leather seats with nappa, a few details covered in alcantara, all trim pieces painted in glossy black, and little blue accents complete this top-notch BMW E38 custom interior.
6. 1965 Ford Mustang Interior
Inspired by Ken Block’s Hoonigan project, from the looks to the performance, this street car build is way over the top. Of course, that includes the 1965 Ford Mustang custom interior.
The pony belongs to Alex Guerra from the popular Latin music band Legado 7. Alex has designed pretty much the entire car and delegated the interior fabrication to the California Upholstery shop.
The seats are out of a 2016 Mustang redone to fit the ’65 Fastback. The door panels, dashboard, headliner, and middle console are all custom. Blue ambient lights were installed to match the vehicle color theme, and Autometer gauges give the old pony a modern look.
7. 1957 Chevy Bel Air Interior
The Tri-Five Chevrolets are one of those iconic American classic cars that never go out of style. Born with leather seats and tons of chrome, the ’57 Bel Air has a beautiful factory interior.
But if all classics were in their stock shape, there wouldn’t be a hot rod scene in the US. Steve Holcomb and his crew at Pro Auto Interiors have done a tremendous job on this ’57 Chevy custom interior.
The entire car, including the trunk, is reupholstered in two-tone tan leather. The 3D door panels, center console, and bucket seats are custom fabricated with a very nice fit and finish. Billet Specialties steering wheel and Hurst shifter were added to complement the work done at the shop.
