The agile and dynamic power transfer is assisted by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission. Thanks to the shorter ratios selected in gears three to seven the driver senses an even more emotively appealing acceleration experience in all speed ranges. Together with optimised response and shift times, the closer ratio spread ensures better transitions when upshifting.
For optimum traction, even in poor road surface conditions the standard all-wheel drive AMG performance 4MATIC transfers the drive power to all wheels. The torque is steplessly variably distributed to the front and rear axle. This configuration results in an optimum ratio of dynamism, efficiency and traction to match the driving situation. A multiple-disc clutch integrated in the rear axle differential with AMG-specific control passes on the engine torque to the rear wheels in a flash should the front wheels lose traction. The spectrum ranges from purely front-wheel drive to the ratio of 50:50 to the front and rear wheels.
The special Yellow Night Edition is painted exclusively in night black or cosmos black and with their unique combination of matt graphite grey and yellow appliqué sections they are immediately identifiable. The exclusive impression is underscored by the light-alloy wheels in matt black with yellow rim flanges and the black painted AMG twin louvre in the radiator grille. Yellow highlights characterise the front apron, the exterior mirror housings, the inserts in the side skirts, the rear diffuser and the rear wing. The special character is additionally emphasised by the AMG sports stripes in matt graphite grey (foiled) on the bonnet, roof, boot lid and sides of the car. High-quality interior with yellow highlights.
