Merc teases the A45

Mercedes has dropped a very special teaser for the holiday season. It gives us a first look at the top spec AMG model that looks like a blast to throw through turns. Really interested to see more about the drift mode.

So much for being original. Looks like marketing taken right from Ford's playbook on the new Focus RS. Minus the hoon culture mixed in and I would be still be very interested.

Since the A-Class is targeting a younger demographic I can understand why their marketing is taking this kind of approach with the A45. Looks to be a better drifting machine than the RS, but a shame there is no manual.

Mercedes has more going for themselves and their products to not offer a manual. From what i realized its brands that have more to lose who do.

That exhaust note sounds fantastic and I think Merc has nailed the marketing around the A-Class. Could see Ken Block having a riot in this thing.
