SPY: The so-called B 25 AMG might not be exactly what it appears to be

First test prototypes for the so-perceived future B 25 AMG have began hitting roads since the end of August. Now, after a deeper analysis and an interview awarded by an official from Mercedes-AMG, it might come as a surprise to find out that those vehicles are in fact just test mules used for developing and evaluating certain technical components for the forthcoming A 25 AMG and CLC 25 AMG. Rather contradictory to what the various reports that appeared during the last year indicated, we say. The main explanation offered is the compact tourer is not suitable enough to undergo the AMG treatment in order to convert it into a hot people carrier. According to the "insider", the new B-Class will likely stay in its current, traditional form, which is far more appealing to the clients targeted by this model.
