AMG Performance package

I purchased a 2006 SLK55 with one of the options being an AMG Performance package. Can anyone explain in some detail what this package is. My understanding is suspension changes and top speed allowances. thanks for your replies and HAPPY NEW YEAR! ! !

Happy New Year to you too!

I believe that's what the package is. I found this somewhere on the Internet:

2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG

This isn't one of those girlie roadsters. The 2006 SLK55 AMG (starting at $62,300) offers crazy power, with its AMG-built 5.5L V-8 engine delivering 355 ponies and a 176-mph top speed. The added performance package includes 18" AMG two-piece alloy wheels and staggered-width tires, 13.4" disc brakes, carbon fiber trim, and AMG sport suspension with “Nürburgring” calibration.
