Mercedes-Benz announces Edition 1 variant to kick off the CLA 45 AMG

Are you an early adopter? Do you fancy the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG so much that you have to be one of the first to have one? Well, the Silver Arrow has you covered then, as they revealed the CLA45 AMG Edition 1 not too long ago.

Scheduled to go on sale very shortly, the CLA45 AMG separates itself from the regular versions thanks to a bespoke gloss-black rear spoiler, graphite-colored side stripes, and matte-black 19-inch alloy multispoke runners. You’ll also find red accenting and trimming festooning the grille, mirrors, wheels, and brake calipers.

Mods on the inside continue as well with unique ARTICO/DINAMICA sport seats and wrapped steering wheel, AMG badging and floor mats, and much more.

None of the mechanicals have been altered as the CLA45 AMG Edition 1 gets the same 2.0L turbocharged four-banger good for a whopping 360hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, mated to an in-house seven-speed dual-clutch cog swapper and a front-wheel drive-based all-wheel drive system. 0-62 happens in a swift 4.6 seconds for a top sprint of 155 mph.

Expressive and exclusive: “Edition 1”

The A 45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG “Edition 1” models are extra-special: the expressive composition of exclusive exterior and interior details generates a new level of excitement. The A 45 AMG “Edition 1” focuses on the car’s affinity to motorsport: the Aerodynamics package with rear aerofoil, additional flics in the front fascia and a larger front splitter create an uncompromising racetrack feel. The paint finish in cirrus white harmonises perfectly with the AMG sports stripes in matt graphite grey on the bonnet, roof and sides. A cosmos black metallic paint finish is available as an alternative. Red accents on the headlamps, radiator grille, exterior mirrors and rear aerofoil leave a lasting impression. These are complemented perfectly by the red-painted brake callipers and the AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels painted matt black featuring special AMG hub caps with a centre-locking look. The 8 x 19 alloy wheels are fitted with 235/35 R 19 tyres all round. Further standard equipment for the A 45 AMG “Edition 1” includes the AMG Night package.

The CLA 45 AMG “Edition 1” features the Night package, red accents on the radiator grille and exterior mirrors, and AMG sports stripes in matt graphite grey above the side sill panels. The optional Intelligent Light System includes red accents on the headlamps. The AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels painted matt black with special AMG hub caps featuring a centre-locking look reveal red-painted brake callipers. The 8 x 19 alloy wheels are fitted with 235/35 R 19 tyres all round. The spoiler lip painted high-gloss black on the boot lid further reduces rear axle lift at high speeds. As well as being available in the standard colours cirrus white and night black, the CLA 45 AMG “Edition 1” can be ordered in optional cosmos black metallic, mountain grey metallic, polar silver metallic or designo polar silver magno.

Black and red dominate the interior of the A 45 AMG “Edition 1”. Red contrasting topstitching embellishes the AMG Performance seats in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre, the door panelling, the top section of the instrument panel in ARTICO man-made leather and the AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre. Other visual highlights include the E-SELECT lever with embossed AMG emblem, the “Edition 1” badge on the AMG DRIVE UNIT and the AMG floor mats.
