The AMG Performance exhaust system ensures an even more emotional engine sound in the interior at the push of a button. From typical AMG to restrained, the sound of the AMG Performance exhaust system fully adapts to the currently selected drive program by means of three variably adjustable exhaust gas flaps. The driver can also change the sound characteristics at the press of a button. This equipment allows a maximum spread of the soundscape, from comfortable to highly emotive.
Two additional exhaust gas flaps allow for even greater differentiation of the sound characteristics. The sound characteristics are dependent on the currently selected drive program – from rich in drive programs C and S to emphatically sporty in mode S+. Control is by means of a variably adjustable exhaust gas flap – without loss of power. Control of the exhaust gas flaps is dependent on both engine speed and load, guaranteeing a 100% power delivery. If desired, the cold start noise can be reduced in drive programs C and S.
