As usual you get an AMG sports exhaust, this one though has three different modes. C (Controlled) muts the V8, S (Sport) and M (Manual) modes open the flaps earlier and more spontaneously.

All that power is tamed by the AMG Speedshift MCT 7 speed gearbox, Start stop is also fitted as standard…to help save those litres being burned in traffic!

Each suspension strut can also be adjusted independently via a new Road Surface Scan system. This helps the vehicle incline up to 2.5 degrees, it works via a camera mounted in the windscreen.
