In a recent statement, Ford designers said something pretty cool.

This is in an effort to highlight areas of innovation. Certain colors are also placed in specific locations. This magnifies the ambiance of efficiency and performance. Throughout the inside of the car, the color is subtle. The interior satin finishes and colors increase as the eye moves toward the passenger side. This helps to minimize driver distraction.

They did this through the use of color. They created balance by ensuring the raw appeal of the performance vehicle was still visible. Everything they did was completely intentional.
