Mercedes AMG speed shift option

Hi

I needed a 3rd brake light as my one had a crack, (amazingly it was as cheap from stealership as online just 100). While I was there I got talking to the parts guy and he gave me my car's 'Data' card, which shows what options the car had from new and one of these options was AMG Speed shift gearbox.

Can anyone tell me how this autobox differs from normal?

Thanks

It has been tuned by AMG to shift faster. It's mostly in the TCU programming, but I believe they also beefed up a few internal clutches.
