When I was Q shopping, I test-drove a '90 90Q20V with this interior.
They called it "Q-script", and it definitely was a Jacquard Satin,
not the standard cloth seats you find.

Unfortunately, the car was black, with black (excuse me, "charcoal")
interior, no ski sack, 19 months on the lot as "new", and had these
wonderful 175-70-14 Goodyear Invicta tires on it. Kinda compromised
the handling :-)

Oh, and they wanted *way* too much money for it.

But, this interior does exist; I sat in one.
