Mercedes-AMG has revealed a special edition of the A45 to celebrate winning this year’s Formula 1 constructors' and drivers’ championships.

The vehicle gets petrol green and black highlights in the same vein as the F1 W06 Hybrid car along with a bigger front splitter, bespoke flics, and a rear-mounted roof spoiler. Customers will be able to order the car in polar silver metallic, designo mountain grey magno, and mountain grey metallic. Regardless of paint choice, all cars get 19-inch cross-spoke titanium grey wheels with a petrol green rim flange.

As standard, the Mercedes-AMG A45 PETRONAS 2015 World Champion Edition features the AMG Exclusive Package, AMG DYNAMIC Plus Package, electrically adjustable AMG Performance seats in leather/DINAMICA, and the Night Package. On the inside it gets a Performance steering wheel dressed in DINAMICA microfiber with petrol green stitching also noticeable on the dashboard, armrests, and on the air vents rings.

There aren’t any mechanical upgrades, so the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine continues to develop 381 PS (280 kW) and 475 Nm (351 lb-ft) of torque. Power is sent to the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system through a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox that was optimized to provide quicker shifts when the facelifted A45 came out earlier this year. This hardware setup enables the model to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in only 4.2 seconds.

Mercedes-AMG will show off the A45 PETRONAS 2015 World Champion Edition this weekend at the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in Yas Marina. It will be available on sale from January until May 2016 at a starting price in Germany of €65,402.40 (VAT included) and €66,818.50 if you go for the designo mountain grey magno matt paint.
