Mercedes-Benz has revealed the “Edition 1” version of the A45 AMG making us love the mini AMG even more.  Like the recently unveiled “Edition 1” CLA 180, the A 45 AMG “Edition 1” stands apart both on a technical level and in terms of appearance. The A 45 AMG “Edition 1” focuses on the car’s affinity to motorsport: the exterior paint finish in cirrus white corresponds with the AMG sports stripes in matt graphite grey on the bonnet, roof and sides. The red highlights on the radiator grille, exterior mirrors and rear aerofoil leave a lasting impression. These highlights combine to perfection with the red painted brake calipers and the AMG multispoke light-alloy wheels painted in matt black with special AMG hub caps in central-locking look. The 8 x 19 light-alloy wheels are fitted all-round with tires in size 235/35 R 19. Both the AMG Night package and the Aerodynamics package feature as standard for the “Edition 1”, providing the perfect finishing touch to the model’s motorsport-inspired character.

Black and red dominate the interior of the A 45 AMG “Edition 1”. Red contrasting stitching embellishes the AMG Performance seats in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfiber, the top section of the dashboard in ARTICO man-made leather and the AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfiber. Other visual highlights are the E-SELECT lever with embossed AMG emblem and the “Edition 1” badge on the AMG DRIVE UNIT.
