At the auto show in New York that will take place in March, Mercedes-Benz will present the most powerful version of the CLA, according to an indirect anouncement via the brand’s page on Facebook.
In fact, the German firm “runs” a contest through the social network in the U.S., giving away as a prize two tickets to the U.S. premiere of CLA 45 AMG which will take place in the international auto show in New York.
At present, this is the only official document for a four-door coupe with the AMG badge, however, it is known that the CLA 45 AMG will share the same engine and specifications with the corresponding version of the A-Class.
Thus, so far the rumors are that the CLA 45 AMG will be equipped with a turbocharged two-liter engine with 350 hp and 400 Nm of torque combined with dual-clutch seven speed gearbox(Speedshift DCT) which will move all four wheels.
The CLA45 AMG will go on sale in the U.S. in late 2013.
