It features illuminated, lens-shaped 50-watt tweeters in the instrument panel and the two subwoofers built into the parcel shelf, while the “Silver Shadow” metallic loudspeaker covers wears the Bang & Olufsen logo signal.
Upon powering on, its color display monitor in the dashboard illuminates the AMG logo for a couple of seconds and depending on the setting, it will show a high-resolution map, music information or a keypad for telephone.
It also boasts of a DVD player on board with an optional 6 disc DVD changer. Below the DVD, it has a memory card slot for its music files.
Mp3 players like iPod can also be connected to the player through its Media interface.
