The engineers from mcchip-dkr have launched an upgrade kit for the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG.

The main focus of this aftermarket package was on the 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged engine which in its standard configuration delivers 360 HP (265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. mcchip-dkr's stage 1 kit bumps output via software optimization to 400 HP (294 kW) and 535 Nm (394 lb-ft). Opt for the stage 2 kit which also includes sports catalysts and the power is increased to 420 HP (309 kW) while torque remains the same at 535 Nm (394 lb-ft).

The cream of the crop is the stage 3 kit lifting output of the four banger to an impressive 450 HP (331 kW) and 550 Nm (405 lb-ft). This additional power is available courtesy some turbocharger upgrades, aside from the already mentioned software tweaks and sports catalysts.

Other changes include KW coilovers and 19-inch mbDesign KV1 wheels wrapped around in 235/35 ZR19 Dunlop Sport Maxx Race tires.
