The Mercedes-Benz A-Class used is an A250 BlueEfficiency and the model is coming with a new front spoiler, a roof spoiler, a rear diffuser, four-tailpipe exhaust system, police livery, 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Hankook Ventus S1 Evo 2 tires and more. Interior changes include the roof-mounted light bar, the special floor mats and the alloy pedals.
