As you said, there are a TON of people in and out of these cars with zero concerns about the car because it's not theirs. BMW makes a very similar color interior as well. Yes, this is not a color of choice for many people due to the look of being dirty or seeing any imperfections.

Heck, when I visited the Ferrari museum a while back they had a Ferrari F50 in the museum on display. The car was used pretty hard and the driver seat looked absolutely trashed, and it was black leather.

I wouldn't be too concerned over this. The same manufacturer that makes high end interiors for hyper-exotics was tapped for the Corvette interior.
