MERCEDES-AMG CELEBRATES LAST SEASON’S F1 VICTORY WITH SPECIAL EDITION A45
To mark the team’s constructor championship in last year’s Formula One season, Mercedes-amg has created a special model of its A45 4Matic hot-hatch, dubbed the Mercedes AMG Petronas 2015 World Champion Edition. According to the brand, the new car blends the expressive Formula 1 look of the victorious Silver Arrows with extensive go-faster equipment.
“With the World Champion Edition we would like to share with our customers our delight and pride in the strong performance of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team,” said Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-amg. “This is a way for every fan to share the success of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg”
The striking external characteristic of the new A 45 is the hallmark foiling with petrol green and black highlights in the design of the winning F1 W06 Hybrid super model. Then there is the streamlining package. At the front it includes a larger splitter and special flics and there is the roof spoiler at the tail end, also inspired by motorsport’s champion’s league. Available for selection as paintwork for the edition are mountain grey metallic, designo mountain grey magno and polar silver metallic. To match there are 19-inch cross-spoke wheels painted in titanium grey and accentuated with a petrol green rim flange.
The interior also radiates a racing atmosphere. The main distinguishing feature is a badge on the lid of the stowage compartment with the official lettering of the Formula One Team. The electronically adjustable Performance sports seats in leather/ DINAMICA microfibre offer increased lateral support in fast bends.
With a maximum output of 381 hp, the A 45 is the most powerful compact hatchback in the world. Thanks to the standard-fit AMG Performance all-wheel drive and the front axle differential lock, the special edition brings power to the road slip-free.
