Forged pistons, connecting rods and lighter crankshaft all come directly from the SLS AMG and equipped by the new engine control unit. Consequently, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph takes just 4.2 seconds.

Optimized engine cooling oils provide more performance even under harsh conditions-track racing. With the help of the components of the SLS AMG, engineers added a 50 percent to the cooling surface of the oil cooler. Power transmission is handled by SPEEDSHIFT, highly acclaimed innovative AMG MCT 7-speed sports gearbox.
