Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG by VATH

For most of the car lovers any Mercedes Benz vehicle means perfection. To improve a Mercedes version can be quite a challenge in these terms, but for VATH tuning company this is daily work. For many years, VATH has been the maximum expression for premium products in car tuning and automobile refinement. It is the sort of tuning company that can give wings to a car. And it surely has the same effect on the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG which has just received a tuning program from the tuner.


The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine which has been tuned to produce 425 hp and 515 Nm of torque. This is 65 hp more than the standard version of the rocket hatchback. In order to provide the extra horsepower of the small engine, VATH equipped the A45 AMG with a re-programmed ECU, and added a new sport exhaust system with a down pipe, a 200 cells VA-stainless steel made trimetal cat, an adjustable valve and 140 x 90 mm tailpipes. Even the sound is more awesome now.


VATH doesn’t seem satisfied with this additional boost and also does some other upgrades for the Mercedes A45 AMG. Among these we have a coilover kit that can lower the A45's ride height between 20 mm and 65 mm, some adjustable shock absorbers ad a set of 19 or 20-inch alloy wheels. The tuner doesn’t mention anything about the price of their package, at least not yet.
