Pick a car model! The Mercedes A 45 AMG? All right! Great choice! We couldn’t have made a better choice ourselves! Pick a color! Would blue be good enough for you? We like it, too! Now, it’s time for a background. Shall we put it against some sandy beach and turbulent ocean waves? There you go!
It is the hot hatch that Mercedes-Benz has been bragging about for years now. Wouldn’t you do the same if this power beauty would have come out of your hands?
The direct rival of the BMW M135i xDrive, the Audi RS3 and the Ford Focus RS is showing off in an out-of-this-world photo session set up by Vossen.
The perfect décor that you built all by yourself right above is for real and it is located in South Africa, close to Cape Town. If you travel down south, you must know how to identify this ready-to-race compact, so let us give you a clue: it runs on 20-inch Vossen VFS2 wheels.
And now that it’s settled, let’s try a trip down memory lane. The Mercedes A 45 AMG is the third generation of the model that was introduced back in 2012. The one in the photo session is none other than the top of the range version of the car, which has received a 3-stage ESP, the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, the AMG sports suspension system with independently developed front and rear axles, the high-performance braking system and so many other features meant to keep this blue baby running the race-way.
The blue hood shelters a blue-blood 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine, which is rated at 355 HP (265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-feet) of torque. All these figures are equal to a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) run in 4.5 seconds and it goes up to 250 km/h (155 mph).
