The AMG range is on the edge of a major change. The Affalterbach-based powerhouse has already confirmed that an A35 is in the works and now we know for sure it won’t take long before it hits the showrooms. The car has been caught testing in Germany.

The brother of the meaner A45, sporting not the Panamericana, but the twin-blade radiator grille, has been put through its paces and spy Walko was there to shoot the video of the prototype. With around 300 horsepower on hand, the A35 will stay far beneath the A45, being powered by the company’s turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder unit.

AMG boss Tobias Moers has recently confirmed hat the entry-level A-Class bearing the AMG logo is not going to be an A40, as previously guessed, but an A35. The compact hot hatch will obviously have a lower starting price, meant to target young customers who are in search of their first personal means of transportation.

New figures are on their way to hit the market next year. AMG is also planning a CLS53, that will debut in January at the Detroit Motor Show. Find out more right here:
