Do you find the Mercedes-AMG A45 S not thrilling enough? Does its 310 kW and 500 Nm not excite you? Brabus has the answer.
German tuner Brabus has a superb reputation for taking AMG's products and enhancing them even further. The Mercedes-AMG A45 S is the latest vehicle to receive the Brabus magic touch. The standard car's outputs of 310 kW and 500 Nm are extraordinary, allowing the hatchback to blitz to 100 kph in a claimed 3.9 seconds. It's undeniably fast, and it makes a mockery of older supercars, while retaining all the comfort and practicality you'd expect from a Mercedes-Benz hatchback.
Brabus has taken the world's most power mass-produced 4-cylinder motor and cranked up the juice. With the Brabus magic, outputs are now at 331 kW and 550 Nm, and the German tuner says its interestingly-named B45 is good for a 3.7 second run to 100 kph. The electronic top speed limiter has remained and if the road is long enough, 270 kph is possible. The B45 sits lower to the ground thanks to a custom adjustable suspension and at each corner, you'll find 20-inch Brabus wheels.
Inside, Brabus is offering customised leather and aluminium pedals.
You (and us included) are likely to be concerned about the mechanical reliability of extracting so much power from a compact motor, but Brabus is offering a 3-year / 100 000km warranty to help allay fears.
