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.
The AMG bodystyling lends the vehicle its unmistakable character, comprising AMG-specific front apron and radiator trim, trim insert in the exterior protective strip, AMG wheels plus AMG flared wheel arches, striking sidepipes and red-painted brake callipers.
Large, internally ventilated and perforated brake disks provide for excellent deceleration. Precise controllability and low response times ensure optimum safety on and off the road. The electric parking brake is integrated into the rear axle calliper and can be activated and released at the press of a button.
To also clearly underscore the performance of the brake system to visual effect, the brake callipers at the front and rear are painted in red with black AMG lettering.
