The Mercedes-AMG A45 is one of the most powerful and capable hot hatches on the market. But if you can’t quite stretch to its €50k list price and still want the look, Piecha Design has a series of visual enhancements for the base A-Class model that ought to do the trick.
The company has extended its GT and GT-R aero kits to the littlest Merc, including front winglets, front splitter, side skirts, roof-edge spoiler, and rear diffuser insert, complete with AMG-spec exhaust tips. The result is an altogether sportier take on the baby Benz.
Piecha has fitted this particular car with its MP1-Monoblock alloys in 19-inch diameter, but can also hook up a set of 20-inch MP5-LXM wheels. There’s a Power Converter kit on offer as well, along with suspension upgrades. And for those who appreciate the more slender form, it has similar enhancements available for the CLA four-door coupe and Shooting Brake wagon.
