If the interior has remained the same for production, there's the Ford steering wheel, air vents from the SEAT Exeo/old Audi A4 Cabrio, and a clock from Walmart.

spoiler alert: no one probably cares (least of all, Putin) what his driver has to see behind the wheel as far as switchgear is concerned...

Oh trust me, he cares. You don't think Russia's well-proven inability to develop competitive cars without outside help is a thorn in his side?
