Brabus reveals tuned Merc CLA 45 AMG

The Brabus is a hopped-up Mercedes CLA 45 AMG. As revealed on Top Gear, this turbo-charged monster has an engine power of 394bhp and a sprint from 0-62mph in just 4.2 seconds.

The new beast will hit 168mph after the removal of its speed limiter. Benz’s seven-speed twin-clutch paddle shift gearbox remains.

On the ourside, we have 19-inch AMG alloys and door mirror casings lined with red accents (presumably akin to go-faster stripes).

Whilst there is no word on price, we say budget considerably more than the CLA 45 AMG’s price tag of £41,500.

Mercedes was a model of car first

Did you know that Mercedes was originally a model of the motor group, Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG).

In 1900, after the death of co-founder Gottlieb Daimler, DMG started to develop. The name was not formally lodged til 1902.
It wasn’t until post-1926 that the best-selling German car manufacturer Mercedes was born.
