The salient point of the two new sports of Affalterbach lurks under the bonnet. The EQ Boost performs the tasks of an alternator, starter motor and main element of the 48v network, ready to give a sort of overboost for a few seconds of 22 hp and 250 nm. This specific unit of E53 AMG increases performance and decreases consumption at the same time. The German House declares an acceleration 0-100 in 4.5 seconds, a maximum speed of 270 km/h (self-limited, in the Driver’s Package) and an average consumption in the mixed cycle of 8.4 l/100 km. The EQ Boost system recovers energy during braking, improves start & stop operation. The presence of the electric compressor also allows eliminating almost all the turbo-lag, obtaining 520 Nm of torque available starting from 1,800 rpm and delivered up to 5,800 revolutions per minute.
The gearbox is a 9-speed automatic SPEEDSHIFT TCT AMG, while the 4MATIC + Performance AMG’s integral traction allows for an effective distribution of the torque between the front and rear axles. Five driving modes selectable by the Dynamic select AMG: Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport + and Individual.

The electro-mechanical power steering has two levels of adjustment, to better adapt to a guide in Souplesse rather than to the one with the knife between the teeth on the track.
