Just beginning to arrive in dealerships, the Mercedes-Benz CLA is Mercedes’ newest entry level model. The four-door coupe CLA is already a design leader with its aerodynamic exterior and sporty interior but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be tweaked to fit your own personal taste. We just brought you a CLA tuning program by Brabus, but if that doesn’t fit your taste, Piecha Design has also launched a modest styling package dubbed the Mercedes CLA 250 GT-R.

Piecha Design modified the CLA 250 with with a sport cosmetic kit and installed a front chin spoiler, diffuser, matte silver air splitters for the bumper, and a four-pipe exhaust system with 90mm pipes. The CLA 250 stock wheels have been removed, replaced by custom ten-spoke alloys with new tires.

The Mercedes CLA250 GT-R is only a cosmetic styling package, under the hood remains the stock 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter gas engine delivering 208 bhp (155 kW) and 350 Nm of torque, paired with a dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission. Top speed on the stock CLA250 is 149 mph but getting there will now sound much better on the CLA250 GT-R thanks to the new exhaust system.
