Mercedes-AMG Sport Suspension

World-class handling starts here with a computer-regulated adaptive damping system. The geometry and springs are then carefully engineered to match each vehicle with the proper suspension.


AMG RIDE CONTROL Sport Suspension

For this suspension, sensors and computers actively measure variables like lateral acceleration, chassis movement and steering angle, instantly determining the right amount of damping for each individual wheel.


AMG Sport Suspension based on AIRMATIC

Sporting advanced air spring-struts in the front and rear, this suspension actually adjusts the ride height when load weight shifts. At high speeds, ride height is reduced for better aerodynamics and handling.



For more agility and higher traction, Affalterbach engineers created this suspension with special steering knuckles on the front axle, a multi-chamber air suspension, and increased rigidity.


Active Body Control

Active Body Control holds the vehicle steady by regulating the strut forces for each wheel. As a result, any unnecessary body movement is significantly reduced.


AMG Sport Suspension based on Magic Body Control

In the Mercedes-AMG S 65, Active Body Control is combined with a Road Surface Scan system, which studies the road ahead and anticipate obstacles. A stereo camera transmits data to the control computer, and in just fractions of a second, the suspension compensates for a bump or dip. Similarly, the Active Curve Tilting function reads the road and lets the vehicle lean into corners for added aerodynamics.


* Base MSRP excludes transportation and handling charges, destination charges, taxes, title, registration, preparation and documentary fees, tags, labor and installation charges, insurance, and optional equipment, products, packages and accessories. Actual vehicle price may vary by Dealer.


** Stated rates of acceleration are based upon manufacturer's track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.

† EPA estimated fuel economy. Compare the estimated mpg to the estimated mpg of other vehicles. You may get different mileage depending on how fast you drive, weather conditions and trip length. Your actual highway mileage will probably be less than the highway estimate.

‡ With optional trailer hitch. Read Operator's Manual before towing. In some states, aftermarket trailer brakes are required. See dealer for details.
