developed two AMG optional extras: a powerful AMG bodystyling
package and expressive 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels with
mixed-width tyres. These distinctive AMG components are available

side skirts. The redesigned front bumper with enlarged air intakes
and chrome-ringed circular fog lamps is lithe and athletic in

move. The 8.5/9.5-inch-wide wheels carry 255/40 (front) and 275/40
(rear) tyres. The wide AMG wheels fill out the prominent wheel
arches perfectly, giving the side view a sporty appearance.
