Behemoth used a new type of seating arrangement.  These prototype cars were the first trains with staggered seating on a Bolliger and Mabillard roller coaster.  The seats are positioned in a V-shape with the back seats located more outboard than the front seats.  This configuration is said to give each rider an unobstructed view, but I think it also makes boarding and disembarking from the train much easier.  This style of train was later used on Diamondback, Kings Island's 2009 coaster, and on Intimidator, Carowinds' 2010 coaster.
