This is the AMG version of the Mercedes-Benz CLA which will be showcased next week at the 2013 New York Auto Show. We’ve first seen the car when the Driveclub video game (exclusive for PlayStation 4) was announced, but now we have the first official photos with the CLA 45 AMG.
We don’t have confirmed technical specifications of the hot four-door coupe but the model is said to feature a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine churning 360 HP (265 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. This power unit should be linked to a dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission.
What we know for sure is the fact that it will be capable of running the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 4.6 seconds and will carry an entry-level price tag of $50,000. These facts were confirmed by Mercedes-Benz earlier this month at the 83rd Geneva Motor Show.
