Caught wearing heavily camouflage, the prototype is distinguished by high-performance brakes, AMG wheels and a sporty dual exhaust system.

Mercedes hasn't been shy about discussing the A-Class AMG, but we haven't seen the model - until now.

Caught heavily camouflaged, the prototype is distinguished by high-performance brakes, AMG wheels and a sporty dual exhaust system. More interestingly, the car is being benchmarked against the Volkswagen Golf R so the company appears to be taking things pretty seriously.

Power will likely be provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine with 320 hp (239 kW / 324 PS) to 350 hp (261 kW / 355 PS). It is expected to be paired to a dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.
