The Mercedes CLA 45 AMG gets the Brabus treatment
The Mercedes CLA 45 AMG is already the most powerful 2.0 litre 4-door saloon/coupe on the market, offering an immense 355bhp and 332lb/ft of torque. But if you think the CLA 45 AMG is a bit too tame – and needs to shout its performance a bit louder – then Brabus may have the answer with their take on the CLA 45 AMG.
Brabus have taken the Mercedes 2.0 litre turbo and had a play with its brain to release even more horses than the standard car so it now has an astonishing 395bhp and 369lb/ft of torque, which manages to cut the 0-62mph to an even more impressive 4.2 seconds.
As you’d expect, Brabus has had a play with the looks too, adding red highlights to the door mirrors and front grill, fitted a set of black alloys with more red highlights, added a boot spoiler and small roof spoiler and a carbon fibre front splitter, with the interior getting treated to leather and Alcantara with red stitching and piping.
It’s definitely a more aggressive look than the standard car, although we have to say it seems to have taken more than a little inspiration from the Edition 1 version of the CLA 45 AMG (you can see the CLA 45 AMG Edition 1 photos here), even down to the red stripes on the door mirrors.
Still, if you need your CLA 45 AMG to be a bit more powerful and a bit more shouty, Brabus has it covered.
