AMG High-Performance Braking.
Large, internally ventilated and perforated brake discs all round provide for excellent deceleration. The composite technology at the front increases fade resistance and reduces weight. The reduction of weight lowers the unsprung masses on the wheel, thereby improving the response of the spring/damper elements and overall stability.
The AMG high performance composite braking system includes, on the front axle: composite brake disc measuring 390 x 36 mm, internally ventilated and perforated with 6-piston fixed caliper.
As well as on the rear axle: brake discs measuring 360 x 26 mm, internally ventilated and perforated with 1-piston floating caliper.
The brake calipers are red-painted with black AMG lettering.
The AMG ceramic high performance composite braking system offers motorsports-level braking performance: Short braking distances, precise pressure points, and excellent service lives, even under extreme conditions. And it offers all of this with a weight savings of around 30% in comparison to standard braking discs.
The AMG ceramic high performance composite braking system includes,
on the front axle: composite ceramic disc with a diameter of 402 x 39 mm, with 6-piston fixed caliper, internally ventilated and perforated.
As well as on the
rear axle: composite disc with a diameter of 360 x 26 mm, with 1-piston combined floating brake caliper, internally ventilated, grooved and perforated. Brake calipers are specially painted and marked with “AMG Carbon Ceramic” lettering.
AMG Exhaust System.
From a sonorous sound typical for AMG to more reserved noise levels, the sound of the AMG sports exhaust system adapts to the currently selected transmission mode by means of a variably adjustable exhaust flap. The electric exhaust flap is infinitely variably controlled across the entire engine speed range by means of maps stored in the transmission mode. A blip on the throttle (in transmission mode S) and a misfire (in transmission modes S+ and Race) emphasize the sporty characteristics of the particular transmission modes. An attractive look is ensured by two chrome-plated twin tailpipe trim elements.
Two additional exhaust flaps allow for even greater differentiation of the sound characteristics. The sound characteristics of the AMG Performance Exhaust System are dependent on the currently selected transmission mode and fully adapt to the currently selected transmission mode by means of three variably adjustable exhaust flaps – from full-sounding in transmission modes C and S to emphatically sporty in transmission modes S+ and Race. Control of the exhaust flaps is dependent on both engine speed and load, guaranteeing a 100% power delivery. The driver can also change the sound characteristics at the press of a button. If desired, the cold start noise can be reduced in transmission modes C and S. This optional extra allows a maximum spread of the sound, from comfortable to highly emotive.

AMG Speedshift MCT 7-Speed Sports Transmission.
With seven speeds as well as RACE START and double-declutching functions, this transmission allows extremely dynamic acceleration and ultra-short shift times as well as a fuel-saving driving style. Consistent further development of hardware and software has made it possible to further optimize the reaction times. This means that the driver's shift commands can be carried out faster than ever before. Depending on the preferred driving style, the driver has a choice between an efficient and comfortable setting in transmission mode "C" (Comfort), a brisk and sporty style in "S" (Sport) and "S+" (Sport Plus), Race or manual style in "M". Gearshifts are executed with virtually no interruption in tractive power. Ultra-fast, responsive multiple downshifts are another forte of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission. For instance, kickdown allows the driver to shift down directly from seventh to fourth gear or from fifth to second. The RACE START function supports optimal acceleration from rest or from the starting line in motor sports events.
AMG RIDE CONTROL Sports Suspension.
With its adaptive adjustable damping, the suspension provides three levels at the touch of a button. The driver can choose between “Comfort,” "Sport“ and "Sport +” and thus adjust the damping characteristics to the driving conditions - from comfortable cruising through to a sporty, agile driving style.
Electronic AMG Rear Axle Differential Lock.
In contrast to a conventional differential, the AMG rear-axle limited-slip differential uses multi-disc clutches and two thrust rings. The clutch redistributes the drive torque to the wheel with the better traction, and thus the spinning of the inside wheel is prevented.
The electronically controlled AMG limited-slip differential on the rear axle ensures more agility and greater driving pleasure. While offering all the advantages of a mechanical limited-slip differential, it also guarantees increased driving stability in slaloms or when changing lane at high speed.
AMG Dynamic Engine Mounts.
The two basic functions of an engine mounting are to hold the engine in place and to isolate the body as effectively as possible from engine vibrations. Soft mountings are characterized by high comfort and rather poor driving dynamics. On the other hand, hard mountings make for superior driving dynamics at the expense of reduced comfort. This conflict of goals between as soft as possible a mounting for high comfort and a hard mounting for improved driving dynamics is resolved by dynamic AMG engine mountings. They ensure the optimal connection between engine and body in every driving situation to ensure that both goals are achieved. A driving situation detection function correctly assesses the current situation to enable the optimum damping and stiffness values to be automatically selected to suit every driving situation. The basic tuning of the dynamic AMG engine mountings can be decided by the drivers themselves by selecting the transmission mode. This applies to transmission modes "C" (Comfort), "S" (Sport) and "S+" (Sport Plus).
