In the event you go to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show and you see a number of special edition Volkswagen Up! models in attendance, you shouldn’t be surprised.
That’s just how Volkswagen rolls.
One of the concepts, the Swiss Up!, was designed to pay tribute to the host city and its country and comes dressed to the party sporting an exterior that’s painted in red and white, or in case you didn’t know, the two colors that comprise the Swiss flag.
The interior of the Swiss Up! sports the same two-tone color scheme while also finished in a ’ceramique’ trim color. In addition, the seats of the car have also been dressed in the same ceramique finish while the seat surfaces and grab handles in the roof liner are all upholstered in brown Alcantara. The interior also has a narrow leather band that runs laterally across the center panels of the front seat backrests with each leather band sporting a holder for a pocket knife.
Finally, the dashboard of the Swiss Up! was painted in a white, silk-like ‘porcelain paint’ adorns the dashboard with decorative bezels on the round air vents painted in Tornado Red.
