Motoring pleasure and sportiness are in the very nature of a roadster. With DYNAMIC SELECT, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 lives up to this promise in a highly targeted manner without neglecting comfort and consumption. At a touch of the DYNAMIC SELECT feature in the centre console, drivers can choose between comfortable, sporty, particularly sporty and efficient driving styles, or their own individually defined style. To achieve this, parameters such as the engine, transmission, suspension and steering characteristics are adjusted according to the selected drive mode. The standard setting is the well-balanced and fuel-efficient “Comfort” mode. The “Sport” drive mode offers further agility and dynamism thanks to its more progressive characteristic steering curve, sporty, taut suspension tuning, spontaneous throttle response and modified shift points (with automatic transmission). The element of sportiness can be enhanced even further by switching to the “Sport+” mode. In this case the suspension and drive system are even more dynamically tuned. The ECO start/stop function is deactivated. The “Eco” drive mode is designed to keep fuel consumption as low as possible. This includes adjustments to the accelerator pedal curve and shift points. In addition, the output of equipment items such as heated seats, the heated rear window and the air conditioning is similarly adjusted. As soon as the driver takes the foot off the accelerator, the vehicle switches to using its own kinetic energy, so allowing it to coast in a very fuel-efficient manner. The “Individual” mode gives the driver the ability to adjust the various parameters such as the steering, drive system and suspension to suit his own requirements.*
A noise becomes a feeling. Listening becomes experiencing. The new sports exhaust system alone is reason enough to open the roof of the Mercedes-AMG C 43. It produces a highly emotive and appealing sound. This is made possible by the modified structure of the exhaust silencer system: via the integral exhaust gas flap the sound characteristics adapt to the chosen DYNAMIC SELECT drive program. Every driving experience is thus given an optimum acoustic backdrop: powerfully increasing and rich when accelerating in the Sport Plus drive program, comfortably restrained during relaxed motoring. The emotive hallmark AMG sound of the sports exhaust system is particularly powerful when accelerating.Overview of the sports exhaust system:More advanced exhaust system with emotive engine sound. With lower counterpressure and reduced weight. Two tailpipe trim elements in twin-tailpipe design. In Sport mode: sporty characteristics, In Sport+ mode: exceptionally sporty and emotive 6-cylinder sound due to double-declutching function when shifting down and misfire, i.e. backfire applied deliberately when changing up.
