Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ – “Drifting Days Are Here Again”.
AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive.
One of the most technologically impressive elements of the new Mercedes-AMG E-Class is the car’s newly installed AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive. Essentially a way to switch control and power between the wheels, the 4MATIC+ system allows front and rear torque distribution to be fully variable for the first time for maximum traction and control. Where the 4MATIC+ really comes into play is through the Mercedes-AMG’s “Race” mode. Switch it on, deactivate the ESP, switch the gearbox to manual, pull the shift paddles, and you’ll switch into “Drift” mode. Using the 4MATIC+ system, power then shifts from all four wheels to the rear, making it easier for you to glide across the tarmac.
