Brabus is the people you call when your Mercedes-AMG is simply not enough. But Brabus' latest creation will give the guy with a Porsche 911 Carrera S a run for their money. The already mighty Mercedes-AMG A45 S is no slouch to begin with if you are unaware. However, the German tuning firm managed to squeeze out a few more ponies and torque from the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The confusingly named the B45-450 comes with a new tuning map for the engine, along side Brabus' PowerXtra CPC auxiliary control unit, a special airduct for the airbox and Brabus' BoostXtra adapter. To those who love the sound of pops and bangs, rejoice as the Brabus BoostXtra adapter allows the turbocharged engine to make "a sporty blow-off noise like a racecar". Hopefully it doesn't sound like a mouse sneezing in your engine bay.
Despite the performance upgrades, the top speed remains unchanged at 270km/h. Brabus will also be offering a set of height-adjustable sport springs which can be dropped down to an additional 30mm. A perfect combo if you opt for their set of tailor-made Monoblock Z 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 245/30 Continental tires. According to Brabus, the new wheels offer “outstanding strength and lightweight construction”.
