Embraer Vice President Interior Designer Jay Beaver told that the decision to leave the Legacy name was made in order to distinguish the company's specialized business jets, such as the Legacy 450 and 500 and the Praetor 500 and 600, from its commercial derivative models. such as Legacy 650.

Named after a high-ranking government magistrates in ancient Rome, the name Praetor was chosen to convey the meaning of the fact that a jet was the final servant of the owner, Beaver said.

Interestingly, the Praetor 500 and Praetor 600 will not replace the two aircraft on which they are based. Instead, the Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 should remain accessible to customers who do not require the increased capabilities of the new aircraft.

For example, stitch patterns on seats are modeled after stone paths on Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, while silk and woolen carpets are "an abstract interpretation of glowing light reflecting from ripples in the ocean on a completely calm day," said Beaver.

The interior combines materials such as carbon fiber and stone.
