SPY: The 2013 Mercedes-Benz A 25 AMG - first road appearance

Following the many reports regarding the possibility of an AMG variant for the next A-Class, spy photographers have recently spotted the first test prototype of a so-called A 25 AMG running initial tests on the streets of Affalterbach.

What was once a rumor is now about to become reality in a matter of years. Specifically, the new A 25 AMG will be unveiled in 2013, almost a year after the introduction of the standard A-Class, which is derived from - visually speaking. The similarities end up there, as AMG are fully in charge of mastering this little devil on four wheels. That's why the engineers are now secretly working on a new, special 4x4 powertrain for the car, to help cope with the immense output and torque of the engine bound to be installed under the bonnet: a supercharged, 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine boasting around 320 hp-350 hp and developed together with the Swiss experts from Hyprex. Put together with the above-mentioned details a revised exterior design that carries the unmistakable AMG signature (a new, greater radiator grille, huge air intakes all over the place, special alloy wheels, quad-exhausts, a discrete spoiler and a rear diffuser, a bespoke interior etc.) and you'll have one of the very best sports packages in the compact class, hard to equal, hard to beat by any of the few competitors that exist or will be released in the coming period of time.
