In a world inundated with futuristic, high-tech dashboards, the allure of a vintage car dashboard endures. There’s something inherently captivating about the vintage car dashboard—a symphony of dials, knobs, and gauges. It’s more than just a utilitarian instrument panel, it’s a work of art, a visceral connection to the vehicle, an integral part of the driving experience and the part of the vehicle that you the driver interact with. Michel had put a lot of meticulous work into the dashboard of his Bentley Le Mans Special car and wanted a pair of period dash lamps to set it off.
Michel chose the Toby DF5 Dash Lamp in gloss black to illuminate the dials and provide the option of a map reading light for the passenger. We look forward to seeing the rest of the car, judging by the dashboard it is going to be stunning.
