Mercedes-Benz has two Edition 1 models on show at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. One of them is the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG Edition 1 which esentially previews all the options available for the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG from release. We sent a photographer to take a closer look!
All the parts you see on the Edition 1 are available on the series production models. The Edition 1 gets a complete AMG Aerodynamics package consisting of an AMG rear aerofoil, additional flics to the front apron and a larger front splitter.
Cosmetic upgrades include an AMG carbon-fibre exterior mirror housing, AMG Exterior Carbon-Fibre package, a front splitter, a set of side sill panel inserts and trim on rear apron in genuine carbon fibre. The rear gets an AMG aerofoil, an AMG Exclusive package and a set of AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels in 8 x 19 fitted with 235/35 R 19 tyres. They come finished in two variants, either painted in titanium grey with high-sheen finish or in matt black with high-sheen rim flange.
Of course, underneath, the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG Edition 1 is the same as any other A 45 AMG. It features a twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0 liter codenamed M133 and based on the Daimler 2.0 liter turbocharged power plant. It develops a maximum output of 360hp and up to 450 Newton metres of torque. The Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG accelerates from zero to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds, while its top speed stands at 155 mph which is electronically limited. It features the AMG Speedshift DCT seven-speed dual clutch transmission and a rear differential.
