The AMG Ride Control suspension received a new configuration. It is based on a multi-chamber air suspension system, combined with adaptive, electronically controlled adjustable damping. The damping system use for the first time two pressure limiting valves. These variable control valves located outside the damper. They allow the damping forces to be adjusted even more precisely to different drive programs and driving conditions. One valve controls the rebound damping. Meanwhile, the other controls the compression damping when the wheel compresses.
