Reminiscent of Mercedes-AMG's powerful performance label, the turbine-type air conditioning vents add boldness and excitement to the immersive interior. The entire cockpit not only has a futuristic sense of luxury but also ergonomic comfort. The digital instrument cluster is integrated into the dashboard, exquisite as a sculpture, complementing the 12.8-inch floating central control screen. The 1.6㎡ oversized immersive panoramic canopy brings a wide view and romantic atmosphere, and the interlayer silver plating process can block 99% of ultraviolet rays, without fear of the sun. The 64-color dual-zone smart mood light with music rhythm function, combined with the 13-speaker sound system created by Beats Gold Tuner, brings a heart-stirring visual and auditory feast to the new model.
