Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG – first official images released image

The first official images with the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG prototype have been released by the German based automaker, revealing an aggressive design of the company’s future hot hatch.

After some rumors appeared earlier this week saying that the full production version of the Mercedes-Benz A45 will receive 330 horsepower, the model is once again highlighted, this time by the automaker, who has released the first official images. Keep in mind that the vehicle posted in below this article, in the photo gallery, is a prototype version, and it’s only offering a glimpse of the full production version which will hit the market sometimes next year.

The all-new Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is expected to use a four-cylinder engine, transversal mounted, similar to the one adopted by the A250. The unit will be developed in a partnership signed with High Performance Engine and thanks to some significant improvements it will develop around 330 horsepower and about 400 Nm of torque. The engine will be assembled in Affalterbach, the birth place of AMG and production will be maintained in the Kolleda factory, the same place where the four-cylinder units of the A-Class and B-Class are being made. The A45 AMG will be completed with an independent sports suspension, an electromagnetic sports steering and an AMG braking system. The model will be aimed to younger customers and it will make its debut next year, during the Geneva Motor Show.
