Earlier this year Bombardier introduced an Indy 500 interior package for its new Learjet 40, at a cost of about $150,000. The package includes a rather dramatic red-and-black color scheme and extensive use of embossed leather, graphite surfaces and metallic accents. For those who prefer both speed and comfort, the seats are two inches wider than those previously offered in the Learjet 45, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway logo is embossed into the upper portion of the seatbacks. Buyers will also receive four admission passes to the Bombardier pagoda for all three speedway events–the Indianapolis 500, the Brickyard 400 Winston Cup Race and the SAP United States Grand Prix Formula One race. The package is available through the end of 2005
