Praga Bohema delivers prototype-spec race car-inspired cabin

LinkedIn +

Despite being designed with a race-derived carbon fiber monocoque which has resulted in a narrow cockpit, Praga has shaped the interior of the new Bohema to ensure two occupants can be seated comfortably.

Steps built in to the Bohema’s bodywork enable both the driver and passenger to enter the vehicle without actually stepping on the body, and by using the adjustable steering column, pedal box and seat position and angle, drivers can tailor each interior touchpoint to suit their own personal preference. Ergonomically sculpted structures in the form of molded recesses for the passenger’s arms and elbows increase comfort without encroaching on the driver’s space.

The Bohema’s removeable steering wheel features a large digital display which provides the driver with speed, the selected gear, oil and coolant temperatures, driving mode and warning lights. On either side of the wheel is the switchgear for indicators, horn and other functions in addition to rotary thumbwheel selectors. The rim of the wheel is finished in Alcantara while the center pad is trimmed in leather with an embossed Praga logo.

Situated in the vehicle’s slim center console are additional controls including launch control, an in-built fire extinguisher trigger and the Bohema’s electronic parking brake. On either side of the cockpit are electronic door releases – supported by mechanical releases located in the roof – and mirror controls.

A hidden sprung-mount bracket above the center console enables occupants to mount a smartphone for use as a satnav or a performance data monitor. Machined thumbwheels and air vents, hand stitched Alcantara and additional carbon fiber components complete the Bohema’s interior.
