Experience unique gear shifting comfort: We developed and patented a transmission structure that redefines comfortable, efficient, dynamic driving.
The AMG DRIVE UNIT is the central command centre for the sports transmission and for all driving dynamics functions. Among other things, the driving programmes, the transmission and ESP® can be adjusted via the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT controller and various buttons.
This dual clutch transmission system fascinates with instantaneous gear changes and extremely short shift times. Seven gears, three driving programmes, a manual mode, double-declutching and the RACE START function provide exhilarating dynamic acceleration manoeuvres.
The design principle of the transmission comes from motorsport. It consists of two sub-transmissions, each equipped with a clutch. When changing gear, one clutch is engaged as the other is opened. This means the transmission changes gear without any interruption to tractive power.
