Transmissions – Power belongs on the road

Uninterrupted power transmission

AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission

The transmission system is located in a transaxle position at the rear axle and features a rigid link to the engine via the torque tube. Four drive modes and a Race Start function deliver the perfect response to changing road conditions and sporting ambitions.

Key details at a glance:

  • Aligned to the engine: the double-clutch transmission delivers optimum transmission ratio adjustment through a closer spacing of individual gears
  • Road surface contact similar to a racing car: outstanding traction thanks to the integral mechanical differential lock
  • Lightweight: the sports transmission weighs only 136 kilograms
  • When gear changes become a pleasure: Real metal shift paddles are used to move up and down the seven gears in the "M" transmission mode. A short pull on the left (–) or right (+) shift paddle is enough to select the required gear.
  • The choice is yours: drivers can select from four different transmission modes ranging from comfortable to extremely sporty, as well as a Race Start function.
  • Shift up at full load: experience dynamic acceleration for maximum driving enjoyment.
