With seven gears, three transmission settings specific to the drive modes and a manual mode as well as double-declutching and Race Start functions, this transmission enables emotionally appealing, dynamic, acceleration manoeuvres. The briefest shift and reaction times ensure top-level agility.
The driver's control commands can be implemented more quickly than ever before. Depending on the desired driving style the driver can choose between an efficient and comfortable transmission application using "C" (Comfort), sporty and ambitious with "S" (Sport) and "S+" (Sport Plus), "Race" (only in conjunction with Mercedes-AMG C 63 S) or manual with "M". Gear-changes are made without any interruptions to tractive power.
Further strong points of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission are the particularly rapid, swiftly responsive multiple downshifts it enables. The driver can kick-down directly from seventh to fourth gear, or from fifth to second gear. The Race Start function supports optimal acceleration from a standstill as with a start in motorsport.
Only available for the Mercedes-AMG C 63 and Mercedes-AMG C 63 S.
