Pricing for the Mercedes-AMG A45 S has been released for South Africa. Here's how much Affalterbach's hot hatch costs.
The hyper hatch from Mercedes-AMG is on its way to South Africa and we have pricing, thanks to our good friend Zero2Turbo. The headline news is that the newcomer's 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbo-petrol motor develops no less than 310 kW and 500 Nm of torque. Those numbers see the Benz leave the hot hatch brigade well in its wake and move towards the realm of the hyper hatch; its an engineering achievement that beggars belief. Performance figures are mightily impressive. Mercedes-AMG claims a 0-100 kph in just 3.9 seconds and it'll run onto a top speed of 270 kph if fitted with the AMG Drivers Package.
Zero2Turbo makes mention of some of the options available for the A45 S, such as: Designo Mountain Grey Magno paint for R31 500, AMG Aerodynamics package at R26 350, and the AMG Special “EDITION 1” at R144 500. Naturally, these options would make the A45 S price break over the R1 million barrier.
