2007 Ford Interceptor concept
The Interceptor’s cabin is finished in dark black leather and contrasting metal finishes. Its four low bucket seats are gloved in black belt leather, with exposed seams and distinctive caramel stitching. The headrests, interestingly enough, drop from the ceiling when the sedan starts up. The needles in the side-by-side speedo and tach gauges start out in the center and move to opposite sides as speeds increase.
That busy, buzzing rumor mill has been rife with reports that Interceptor might surface as one in an array of new Mustang-designated products. We find that a bit of a stretch, but look carefully at this show car. You’re very likely to see some of the fundamental design cues resurface as Ford pushes the proverbial “design envelope.” The automaker has to move away from bland and safe. The biggest risk, it’s been said, is no risk at all. You may love the Interceptor or hate it, but at least it touches the emotions.
