The 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class has received an upgrade kit from the tuners at VATH who decided to focus their attention on the A250 version of the German hatchback. The stock 2.0-liter gasoline power unit is capable of developing 211 HP (155 kW), but after VATH works its magic it can churn 245 HP (180 kW). Torque has increased from the series 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) to 287 lb-ft (390 Nm).
As a result of this power boost, the A-Class A250 by VATH will complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 5.9 seconds, on its way to a maximum speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
VATH installed a stainless steel rear silencer, a 270 EVO downpipe with a 200 cell tri-metal catalyst manufactured as well from stainless steel. The A250 sits 30mm closer to the road thanks to the new lowering springs. The vehicle rides on a fresh new set of 19-inch alloy wheels covered at the front axle by 235/35 ZR19 tires and at the rear by 255/30 ZR19 rubbers.
Other goodies worth mentioning include a sports steering wheel, stainless steel brake lines, wood and carbon applications on the inside, along with Castrol SRF racing brake fluid and a front spoiler lip made from carbon fiber.
