Just one guy's opinion, but I think it works well. Its not a sporty look per se, but more in line with a luxury look. I think of it as putting clothing together, you would wear these shades in clothes, so to me it makes sense. I'm personally going for the red leather and black alcantara for my GranTurismo S, but came to that decision to make it look more sporty. We'll see how it turns out in a few months when it get it.
