Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG debuts at the New York Auto Show

After numerous spy shots and leaked images Mercedes has unveiled the hot CLA 45 AMG at the New York Auto Show. The CLA 45 AMG is powered by a 360bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol with 332 lb ft of torque linked to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

There are of course numerous individualisation options available from carbon-fibre parts to optional AMG performance parts.
