Here are the first pictures of the cabin of Alfa Romeo’s Project 939, the hugely important replacement for the 156. The new car is in the final stages of development with the finishing touches being put to the dashboard mouldings.

Although the overall styling theme stays much the same, to the right of the steering wheel can be seen a start/stop button and the slot for a card key. The close-up of the dials shows that Alfa’s designers have put great effort into the fine details such the instrument needles. The car also gets complex new column stalks.

One exterior detail can also be revealed: the 157 saloon loses its hidden rear door handle.
