The Grammy Award winner Usher has been announced by the German based automaker Mercedes-Benz to promote the brand new A45 AMG. The world’s most powerful hot hatch will be taken for a spin by the famous pop star and he will be talking about his experience on Facebook. Usher isn’t a stranger to Mercedes-Benz cars and he’s also driving a CLS63 AMG, along with a Sprinter, which is being used with his family.

As a quick reminder, the brand new Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG has been recently unveiled during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The model is coming with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine under its hood, which is producing an impressive 360 HP (256 kW), at 6,000 rpm, with a peak torque of 450 Nm (332 lb-ft), available between 2,250 and 5,000 rpm. The engine is mated to an AMG Speed Shift DCT seven-speed sports transmission, sending power to the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. The A45 AMG can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds, before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
