In a Facebook post and a press release regarding the new engines available on the A- B- and CLA-Class, Mercedes subtly introduced the CLA45 AMG Edition 1.
The CLA 45 AMG “Edition 1″comes in either cosmos black metallic, mountain grey metallic, polar silver metallic or designo polar silver magno and will set you back 63,099.75 Euros.
The Mercedes CLA45 AMG Edition 1 receives a gloss black rear spoiler, graphite grey side stripes, red accented grille and mirror and matte black 19-inch alloy wheels also with red accents and matching red break callipers.
Interior updates have been minimal, ARTICO/DINAMICA sport seats, a leather/DINAMICA-wrapped steering wheel, RTICO-wrapped dashboard all with red contrast stitching, similar to the interior of the A45 AMG Edition 1. This is in major contrast to the NEON ART yellow interior of the CLA180 Edition 1 model. Not to be forgotten are the AMG floor mats and the special Edition 1 badging.

Similar to the standard A45 AMG model, The Edition one has been fitted with a 360bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol with 332 lb ft of torque that is connected to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. This system allows the high performance four-door coupe to spring 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds, with a top speed that is electronically limited to 155mph.
Both A45 AMG models will be available to order in July and will be in dealerships in September 2013.
