Mercedes-Benz A-Class is probably the best looking hatchback not only in India but globally, making it a preferred choice of tuners for mod-jobs. While A-Class is gorgeous, the A45 AMG is simply outstanding in terms of the performance. And if this was not enough, Germany based Folien Experte, an aftermarket tuner has made the A45 AMG more desirable.
Folien Experte has given a full matte chrome red body wrap treatment to the Daimler's hot hatch. A closer look on the modified car will make you realize that this is the Edition 1 version, that was available during the first 12 months from the launch of the car. Reason being, a rear wing and the extra flics on the front apron. Rest, Mercedes carried forward the design throughout the years, before giving it a major facelift this year.
Not much, apart from the matte chrome red wrap, has been added to the A45 AMG. Though, some of the other changes are more mechanical than cosmetics, such as the KW coilover suspension, that would set you back by €3,000 and the 19-inch Brabus Monoblock F wheels, covered with Pirelli P Zero 235/35 R19 tyres, that would set you back by €4,500. And regarding the matte red finish, well, it's just a little over €4,200.
Coming onto the performance, the car is not just cosmetically good looking, but also packs some serious punch. A more powerful four-cylinder, 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine is tuned to churn out some 435 PS, a power surge of good 75 PS over stock 360 PS. To match the engine, new race filters, sports exhaust system and ECU remap is done by PP-Performance.
And this tuning job is not cheap at all, and will set you back an additional €7117, while an additional one-year warranty and TÜV certification will cost €498. To sum it up, the car in the image with all the tuning job will cost you an extra, 20000 bucks. Guess this super looking hatch is not cheap after-all.
