SPY: The 2013 Mercedes-Benz A 25 AMG 'glides gently' on the slippery Nürburgring

Mercedes-Benz is about to introduce the new A 25 AMG shortly after the market launch of the new generation A-Class in September. The compact sportscar promises to be the ultimate leader of the segment thanks to a series of special features that speak about the dynamic character of the car: the new supercharged gasoline unit, the integral traction system, the adaptive suspension and the multitude of ride management systems developed by AMG for a safe experience even at high speeds.

The 2013 A 25 AMG will sport a newly engineered powerplant at the High Performance Powertrains department in Brixworth, UK: experts and technicians used F1 know-how to tweak the engine for maximum performance. While the total displacement of just two litres might not sound very moving, then prepare to hear the rumored value for the peak output: 350 hp. The impressive amount of power is achieved through high-pressure supercharging and intelligent cylinder management. Handling the situation will be easier for the compact A 25 AMG as the car is set to premiere a new 4x4 platform enhanced to deliver an optimal ride and added grip under any condition. The 350 ponnies will reach the four wheels with the help of a double-clutch, 7-speed automatic transmission similar to those found on the C 63 AMG or SLS AMG.
