Mercedes-Benz’s specialized tuner Brabus has recently taken on the company’s first ever hot hatch, the A45 AMG, as its smallest model has gone on sale today.
If you have your eyes on the powerful Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, but you think that the hot hatch needs some tweaking in order to look better in your eyes, you have come to the right place as the team at Brabus has recently modified such a model. The vehicle pictured above has received some subtle visual enhancements, like the different front and rear bumpers, the rear wing or the two-tone monoblock Brabus alloy wheels.
The German tuner has also modified the braking system and it has worked on the suspension system. The interior design of the A45 AMG has gone through several changes too. As far as the engine goes, Brabus has increased the power of the 2.0 liter four-cylinder gasoline burner to 400 HP (294 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque, from the standard 360 HP (265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. These figures have been obtained thanks to the PowerXtra electronic kit. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is made in 0.2 seconds faster than the standard car. The GLA45 AMG will receive similar modifications and chances are Brabus will be eventually adding them to the CLA45 AMG too.
