The Mercedes-AMG A45S is one of the craziest cars to have come out in the last 20yrs – a normal-sized family hatchback, with 415bhp, AWD and crazy performance.
But as is always the case with modern performance cars, there’s a group of people who want more – they want to tune their cars to make them more individual and for Mercedes there’s nobody better than Brabus.
You see this is no back-street garage work, a brand new A45S is shipped over to Bottrop in Germany to have the full Brabus conversion done to it, which means it has full TUV approval and Brabus’ three year/100,000km tuning warranty on it.
So what do they change? First up is the engine work, which combines an ECU tune and blow off valve to give 444bhp and 550Nm – this drops the 0-62mph time by 0.2 seconds – all important on that runway drag race!
Then there is a set of Brabus Monoblock Z 20-inch alloy wheels and height-adjustable sports springs to lower the car by up to 30mm. Then there are lots of Brabus badges all around and some interior finishes as well just to make the whole car look more special.
And as Brabus doesn’t currently offer an exhaust, we’re also adding in an Akrapovic Evolution Line full titanium exhaust so the sound matches the look!
As if that wasn’t enough, we’re basing this conversion on the A45S Premium Plus, so you get all the kit you could want including the Aero Kit, Burmester sound system, Panoramic roof, Multibeam LED headlights, 10-inch media display and more.
This really is the ultimate hot hatch and you could win one in the BOTB Dream Car Competition!
