Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG goes for a photo shoot image

A lot of interesting images with a particular example of the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG have popped onto the web, as part of a photo shoot.

It may have been introduced a few years back but it remains one of the most impressive hot hatches on the market, and with a successor just around the corner, it is looking better than ever. We’re talking about the compact hot hatch put together by Mercedes-Benz, the A45 AMG, and about a particular ride especially, which has been the subject of a photo shoot. The direct rival for the BMW M135i xDrive, the Audi RS3, the Ford Focus RS and others in the segment can be checked out in the images posted below. We have to mention that this particular model has 20-inch Vossen VFS2 wheels and it can be seen in Cape Town, South Africa.

The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is part of the third generation of the model which has been introduced back in 2012. The model in question is the range-topping high-performance version of the car and it has received the 3-stage ESP, the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, the AMG sports suspension system with independently developed front and rear axles, the high-performance braking system and so on. The A45 AMG is packing a 2.0 liter twin scroll turbo four-cylinder engine under its hood, rated at 355 HP (265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 4.5s and to go up to 250 km/h (155 mph).
