LOL--- AWD and 580 hp will definitely help the AMG's from a dig but the cars still get not as efficient mct tranny which is a planetary automatic. Our cars should be just as fast if not better up top with the DCT and no power robbing AWD. I still have an AMG with the MCT and I can clearly tell the difference in shifting and power efficiency.

At least your comment was about a 2014 though unlike the posts in the E55 forum where their cars are 2003's to 2006's.

Who the hell still has a 5 speed automatic tranny? Oh yeah.. they do.
