The 2013 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG will be available for sale next year


German carmaker Mercedes-Benz is preparing a surprise for us. To be more precise, we are talking about a high-performance AMG model for the 3rd generation A-Class. In the gallery you can see some images of the mode during some high-speed tests at the Nurburgring that did not end well. At a first look, there are not a lot of different elements from the new A-Class, but after a better view we can see, the carmaker provided sportier exhaust tips, bigger intakes in the front bumper and also updated brakes to handle the possible extra power. When it comes to the standard trim, the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is available with both gasoline and diesel engines. For a better understanding you should know the carmaker is offering a 1.8-liter turbo-diesel capable of generating 109 horsepower and a turbocharged gasoline 4-cylinder A250 engine capable of providing 211 horsepower. The Mercedes-Benz AMG will go on sale next year and it will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine which is believed to deliver 330 horsepower and 295 lb. ft. of torque. To send all this output to all four wheels, the German engineers have offered an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. In terms of handling, the specialists have provided a specially made suspension setup. This features independently developed front and rear axles, but also electromechanical AMG speed-sensitive steering. The new Mercedes-Benz AMG will be capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 5.0-seconds and of reaching a limited top speed of 155 mph. nothing is for sure yet, but there might be some modifications when it comes to the speed which can increase this limit. The carmaker plans to introduce the model this month at the Paris Motor Show. Bad news for the North American customers as it seems that the Germans have no plans on introducing it on this market. It is not all bad, as another version of the AMG will be available here. To be more precise, we are talking about an AMG version of the future CLA 4-door coupe. Its final name might be CLA45 AMG, but we will know for sure at a later date. motorauthority
