- Rear axle: integral brake disc with a diameter of 360 x 26 mm with one-piston combined floating brake caliper, internally ventilated, grooved and perforated
- Specially painted brake calipers with "AMG Carbon Ceramic" lettering
AMG Sport exhaust system
From typical AMG to restrained, the sound of the AMG sports exhaust system adapts to the currently selected transmission mode by means of a variably adjustable exhaust flap. An attractive look is ensured by two chrome-plated twin tailpipe trim elements. The electric exhaust flap is infinitely variably controlled across the entire engine speed range by means of maps stored in the transmission mode. This provides a homogeneous level across the entire engine speed and low ranges. A blip on the throttle (in driving mode S) and a misfire (in driving modes S+ as well as Race) emphasize the sporty characteristics of the particular transmission modes.
AMG Performance exhaust system (optionally available)
Three variably adjustable exhaust gas flaps are used to adapt the sound to the selected drive program. The driver can also change the sound characteristics at the press of a button. This allows a maximum spread of the sound, from comfortable to highly emotive.

AMG 4.0-Liter V8 Biturbo Engine.
The 4.0-liter eight-cylinder biturbo engine is already being used in numerous AMG Performance vehicles. It is also installed in the AMG GT sports car with dry sump lubrication. A characteristic feature is that the two turbochargers are not positioned on the outside of the cylinder banks, but inside the cylinder "V." The main advantages of this design are the compact engine construction, optimal response and low exhaust gas emissions. Powering the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC+, it puts out 375 kW (510 hp) with a maximum torque of 700 Nm. Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h is completed in 3.8 seconds. The top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited), 280 km/h respectively (with the optional AMG Driver’s Package).
AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-Gear Sports Transmission.
With nine gears as well as RACE START and double-clutching functions, this transmission allows extremely dynamic acceleration and ultra-short shift times as well as a fuel-saving driving style. The systematic 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. Gear shift operations are executed with no interruption in tractive power. Ultra-fast, responsive multiple downshifts are another forte of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-gear sports transmission. The driver can change via kickdown directly from 9th into 5th or from 6th into 2nd gear, for example. The RACE START function supports optimal acceleration from a standstill like it would be from the starting line in motorsport events.
AMG Performance 4MATIC+.
The performance-oriented all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution combines optimum traction, hallmark AMG driving dynamics and the ultimate in driving enjoyment. It improves handling safety and roadholding on wet or wintry road surfaces Thanks to the fully variable torque distribution the driver benefits from the advantages of all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive in equal measure. An electronically controlled clutch provides for variable connection of the permanently driven rear axle with the front axle. The ideal torque distribution is calculated continuously, according to the given driving situation and the driver's wishes. This enables a seamless transition from traction-oriented all-wheel drive to 100% rear-wheel drive. In addition to traction and transverse dynamics, the all-wheel drive also improves the longitudinal dynamics of the vehicle for even more dynamic acceleration.
AMG Sports Suspension Based on AIR BODY CONTROL.
The multi-chamber air suspension system, in combination with an AMG-specific spring/damper setup, which is even sportier compared with the 43-series models, and the continuously adjustable damping system ADS+, ensures vehicle dynamics and ride comfort at a very high level. The damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation and road surface conditions. This is done rapidly and precisely using separate valves for the compression and rebound of the dampers. A harder spring rate, for example when cornering and braking, effectively reduces rolling movements.
With the "Comfort," "Sport" and "Sport+" settings, the multi-chamber air suspension can be set from comfortable to suitable for racetrack use, whereby a wide range is available between comfort and sport and noticeably changes the handling. Thanks to the pneumatic all-round self-leveling suspension, the vehicle maintains a constant level irrespective of the load, and can be raised to increase the ground clearance. At high speeds, the suspension is automatically lowered, helping to reduce aerodynamic drag and further improve handling stability.
Independent multilink rear suspension with harsher tuning compared with the 43-series models ensures more precise and more neutral wheel control. Secure traction at high speeds is guaranteed by a mechanical locking differential on the rear axle. In conjunction with the S-Model, an electronic locking differential is used which ensures improved traction and directional stability thanks to on-demand control of the locking ratio.
AMG Electronical Rear-Axle Limited-Slip Differential.
The electronically controlled AMG limited-slip differential on the rear axle ensures more agility and greater driving pleasure. It offers all the advantages of a mechanical differential lock. Beyond this, it also provides increased driving stability in slaloms or when changing lanes at high speed.
Features of the AMG electronic rear-axle limited-slip differential
- Electrically controlled multi-disc limited-slip differential, adjustment is by means of an electric motor
- Two control units are used to control the differential; the adjustment request comes from the driving dynamics controller
