Before you think this is just another set of photos showing the new Mercedes CLA 4-door coupe, please look again, and look closely: this is not the ‘regular’ CLA, what we have here is the CLA 45 AMG, which got caught on camera for the very first time. The AMG-powered CLA will come with the same 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that will also equip the A45 AMG, and is credited with an output of 325 horsepower.
And just like in the A45 AMG, the CLA 45 AMG will also get four-wheel-drive from the Swedish company Haldex to make sure the power will not just make your tires smoke. On these photos we can see that this prototype has the deep spoiler at the front, wider track and wheels, massive braking system, chunky side sills and a flashy spoiler on the trunk.
The exhaust pipes we see in these pics are just temporary, but - from what we are told by our photogtaphers - they couldn’t disguise the powerful sound that came out from them. The Mercedes CLA 45 AMG is expected to make its debut at some point next year.
