Fantasy User Interfaces, Fictional User Interfaces, Fake User Interfaces, Futuristic User Interfaces. Regardless of what the F stands for, they all represent the same thing, the user interfaces and heads up displays found in many popular movies and television shows. Most FUIs are not actual computer programs but simply animations being played back at the correct time or added in post production. These graphics and animations are designed in applications like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects and Maxon Cinema 4D.

The air suspension was inspired by various manufacturers who used Hydropneumatic suspension, such as Citroen, and Mercedes-Benz.

Pass-through folding rear seats and racing style front seats were standard equipment.
