Don’t want to wait until October? The AMG Driving Academy is coming to Road Atlanta on August 29th! I know Fitz is going…has anyone else signed up yet?
“Through careful and near-obsessive engineering, the team at AMG has produced a turbocharged engine that delivers 177.5 hp per liter and develops full torque from 2250 to 5000 rpm. In practical terms, not only can it deliver a mountain of torque on demand, it can deliver the exact level of torque the driver requires.”
“On the road, the CLA45 feels small and agile — not exactly what we’ve come to expect from Mercedes. While it certainly feels every bit the level of quality we expect of anything with the three-pointed star, it is immediately obvious this car uses a cab-forward, transverse-engine layout. The driving position is near ideal, and the seats and steering wheel are a DTM fan’s dream. Rear headroom is compromised by the sloping roof, but on the upside, the trunk has plenty of space. Road noise is minimal and engine noise is fantastic.”
“The CLA45 may not seem like an ideal track-day weapon, but it was one of the most enjoyable cars I’ve had on the track in a long time. On the road, the mixture of luxury and performance make it a world-class sport sedan.”
Our first 2014 CLA45 is now scheduled for production in early November! We don’t have all of the details yet but I am very excited about the most affordable AMG model. Right now we have it set up to look just like this picture – Cirrus White with Black Dinamica Interior and Red brake calipers. It is not spoken for yet…we can still customize it to your perfect vehicle and have it here before the end of the year!
I have often heard it described as the answer to a question that no one asked. However, it is the favorite of many enthusiasts and gets rave reviews from anyone who drives it! You know you want one!
Congratulations to the first Silver Arrow to win the Monaco Grand Prix!
Also leading for several laps…
I never really thought of myself as an AMG driver. Obviously they are amazing vehicles and I love to drive them on the track…I just couldn’t envision myself needing that much power on a daily basis. However, the CLA45 AMG seems to be calling my name! That is a LOT of look and a LOT of power for not a lot of money. It will arrive stateside later this year…I might be ready for an upgrade by then!
Check out these videos and let me know if you need to pre-order!
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is scheduled to arrive about a month after the 2014 CLA250 this fall. This will be the most affordable AMG vehicle ever released and is sure to be a winner! The base price is estimated at $47,470 and includes all of the engineering brilliance you would expect from an AMG product. The order banks are open!
Just added to the Future Vehicles section at MBUSA.com…
“The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG’s S model offers almost 600 horsepower, but we bet few people are terribly disappointed that it’s actually 23 shy. And with 590 lb-ft of torque testing the traction limits on all four tires, it’s hard to feel anything but a giddy sense of awe.”
“In a masterstroke of customer understanding, Mercedes will offer E63 wagon buyers—i.e., enlightened lunatics—only the higher-output tune.”
“Our tech department’s educated guess predicts that the E63 can hit 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, the S in 3.3, and either version can complete a quarter-mile blitzkrieg in less than 12 seconds.”
