Nasko Vilner is the Bulgarian tuner best known for reworking interiors into luxurious cabins fit for a king. Vilner's latest creation, however, is best fit for a king living in the city. The Vilner iQ forgoes the cloth seats of its plebeian Toyota and Scion counterparts, and instead, the front thrones of the Vilner iQ are wrapped in Napa leather while the rest of the interior is covered in Alcantara.

Certainly this begs the simple question, "Why?" Occasionally, as Vilner knows, that question can simply be answered, "Why not?"

High Class Interior for Toyota IQ

Earlier this year, the Bulgarian custom studio VILNER received great recognition from
the world automobile media for the compact Smart ForTwo model, which it completely
transformed, on account of which VILNER decided to demonstrate its abilities on one more
city car.

When it first appeared on the market in 2008, Toyota IQ set itself the task to become the most
attractive vehicle of the subcompact class, but as we know, there can't be any word about
interior luxury in these models.

Yet, there are clients who want to feel comfortably while driving their vehicles, no matter
how unpretentious they might be. For one of these clients namely, the guys from VILNER
transformed completely the interior of this midget, bringing it close to the interiors of highest
class luxurious cars.

Toyota IQ seats are dressed in brown Nappa leather, and in their central parts the leather
is punched, while the whole ceiling and the peak over the mileage-meter are all dressed in
brown Alcantara. Moreover, designer and laser engraved elements are placed on many places
in the interior.

      Is it me, or does that interior just not look "complete"?

        They didn't even bother adding a new steering wheel or at least changing the look...and that thing sitting on top of the speedo just looks ridiculous.

      I don't want it, you can have it, it's too crap for me.

      Why is everyone falling all over themselves in a rush to make a much too expensive luxury version of this enclosed go-kart?

        A go cart is better looking, but your question is completely valid.

      The little thing over the steering wheel is dumb, but overall, it's pretty cool. I'm not saying I would drive it, but I know some awfully wealthy older types that would be all over this. What can Vilner do about the buzzing engine?

        "What can Vilner do about the buzzing engine?" If the answer to that question is anything other than a turbo Hayabusa engine powering the rear wheels, count me unimpressed.

      Type your comment here It is still ugly in this iteration. The question is , "Why do it?"

      I guess for half the price of AM Cygnet, which is more or less, the same? Nice job.
