Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series Concept
The SLS AMG GT3 has paved the way, and we are now offering you a glimpse of the possible new member of AMG Customer Sports Fan Page team: the CLA 45 AMG Racing Series.
Authentic racing sport flair, competitive technology, spectacular design, and exemplary high safety – the close-to-production, four-door, high-performance coupe CLA 45 AMG Racing Series is planned for the highly popular racing series with 2-liter turbocharged vehicles.
With the genes of a champion, the CLA 45 AMG which was launched in 2013 with the world’s most powerful series production 4-cylinder engine, serves as the basis for the possible new customer sports race car. On the race car version it would be possible to adapt the engine performance and technical specifications to the regulations of different racing series. Here, both permanent all-wheel drive and pure front-wheel drive are possible. As in the series vehicle, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports gearbox takes care of power transmission. Body panels made completely of carbon-fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) and specific aerodynamic components promise to provide top-level racing competitiveness, not to mention impressive design. The interior is focused on pure function with numerous safety and race car features.
In a few days, the show car will celebrate its world premiere at the IAA Frankfurt (September 12 - 22, 2013).
