Firmly on the racing line – and the performance pays off The AMG rear spoiler, additional flics on the front skirt, plus air outlets on the rear skirt and in the diffuser optimize airflow – more drive, less lift. The right foot adds the matching storm of sound – generated by the controllable AMG Performance exhaust system. Two chromed end pipes serve as the sound stage for a compelling symphony. The technology is at the forefront. The race is thrilling.
The cockpit is waiting for just one thing – full thrust. The ideal co-driver is also on board – the AMG DRIVE UNIT. The best management of engine, chassis and transmission means the best possible performance. With seven speeds, four drive programs and the RACE START function, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT sports transmission is perfectly tuned to the demands of the track. The optional performance seats score top marks for grip, but it’s the driver who scores the fastest lap times.
Performer meets performer – and the race track is open. In just a moment, the AMG high-performance brakes will let the 18-inch alloy wheels run free. The brake calipers gleam red behind the cross-spoke design in titanium grey – determined to push the drilled brake discs to the limits. It has to be red – the AMG Aerodynamic pack with its enlarged front splitter and additional flics on the front skirt exude sheer performance, and deliver even greater handling stability at the same time. For AMG, the battle for the last milliseconds begins at the factory.
RACE START activated: in 4.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, the Mercedes-AMG A 45 becomes a force of nature. 280 kW (381 hp) and a maximum torque of 475 Nm at 2250 -5000 rpm deliver phenomenal thrust – leaving nothing but exhilaration in its place. The engine feels every bit as special as it was built to be – by hand, in line with the AMG philosophy of “One Man – One Engine”. This is how engines are created not only to drive cars, but also to drive the winning instinct.
It’s good to challenge friends. But it’s better to challenge the laws of nature. When surface conditions are changing by the second, the DYNAMIC PLUS pack is a particularly good choice. The mechanically controlled AMG front locking diffrential improves traction, especially with a sporty driving style. The adaptive damping provided by the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension adjusts its stiffess continuously to all situations. The principle is simple: the faster the driving, the fimer the suspension – and the sooner the finish line appears.
In motorsport, every detail counts – and the Mercedes-AMG A 45 comes ideally qualified. The performance-oriented all-wheel drive 4MATIC ensures a variable, spontaneously modifible torque distribution corresponding with dynamic driving demands – from pure front-wheel drive up to a ratio of 50:50. Additionally, the optional AMG DYNAMIC PLUS with a mechanically regulated front axle limited slip diffrential increases traction by slippage reduction on the inside driving wheel. Thereby the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo provides everything you need to reach your goal: the highest possible grip in every driving situation.Mercedes-AMG A 45
