Our spies have managed to snap pictures of the Mercedes CLA 45 AMG.

Caught undergoing testing at the Nürburgring, the heavily-camouflaged prototype has an aggressive front fascia, aerodynamic side skirts and a modified rear bumper with a dual exhaust system. We can also see a trunk-mounted spoiler, high-performance brakes and five-spoke alloy wheels.

Like the A 45 AMG, the model is expected to feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops approximately 335 HP (246 kW) and 400+ Nm (295+ lb-ft) of torque. It will likely be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system. This could enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than five seconds and hit a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
