Embraer Phenom cockpit by BMW - Click above for high-res image gallery
Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer has called upon BMW
DesignworksUSA to outfit some of the cabins in its luxury executive jets. The two companies have hopped into bed together in order to learn a thing or two from each other, and as a result, you'll soon be able to step aboard an Embraer Phenom 100 or Phenom 300 with Bavarian-inspired cockpits and cabins. BMW took a hard look at how the typical aircraft interior is constructed and then brought the typical German engineering eye to the equation.
This isn't an airborne 3 Series
, though. While both the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 boast unparalleled cockpit spaces thanks to BMW's touches, the company says the exercise had more to do with the translation of ideals rather than transcribing auto design to the air. Clever storage, unique color choice and high-quality materials found their way into the final product.
Embraer says that it will allow customers to choose one of seven different color schemes. So far, around 100 jets have been produced, with another 600 orders waiting to be filled. Hit the jump
