The dashboard and instruments are a work of art and the 300 trim on the door panels and the 300 glovebox emblem remind the driver of the high perfomacr nature of this luxury coupe. The plating, stainless trim, and emblems are bright and vibrant, and the wire wheels make a bold visual statement. The trunk is beautifully finished with carpeting; a wire wheel spare and jack are stowed to the right.
