Although I showed you plenty of shots featuring the 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish's exterior, it's time to see the delicate art that is an Aston Martin interior.

Considering this is a prototype car, it seemed to be pretty much in tip-top shape with exception of the aluminum dead pedal that was slightly askew and the gap in the dash on the passenger side. For a prototype that's actually impressive. Sometimes parts are falling off, as I saw in the Chevrolet Impala at the 2012 New York Auto Show.

But if you want to really see what makes the Vanquish's interior special, it's the little details. Take, for example, the "hourglass" pattern that adorns the seats. While it's common to see modern Audis, Bentleys and Ferraris with a diamond-pattern stitch, the hourglass is a particularly interesting take -- I like it.

The steering wheel should look familiar to those who have seen a One-77 because it is lifted from that product. The leather is the smoothest I have felt on ANY steering wheel and the Alcantara bits with contrasting stitching makes for an interesting and functional touch.

A big change comes to the center stack, which can be a bit annoying if you've piloted a late model Vantage or DB9 -- the buttons can be a bit hard to read at times. Aston's updated the Vanquish's interior with touch-sensitive buttons that are said to provide a sound effect like that of an Apple iPod.

Take a look below at the little cool details I found below...
