The CLA 45 is already a top auto, and comes with plenty of Mercedes hallmarks including luxury and comfort. Of course when you want your ass kicked in a “Merc” you go to the company’s AMG tuning division, who take that luxury and strap a rocket to it. As we are used to with AMG cars, the CLA 45 AMG Edition 1 has been given some extra muscle and now looks like a road hugging muscle car. Under the hood there is a 2.0 liter four cylinder motor that pumps out an impressive 360 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque. That may seem comparatively small these days, but it is enough to send out a seething torrent of power and achieve 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds.
We love Mercedes-Benz here at MensGear, basically if it has the three pointed star on it we are hooked. Luckily for us, Mercedes continues to churn out one awesome car after the next, and the latest is the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Edition 1.
