The Mercedes-Benz GLA is based upon the A-Class and serves as a baby SUV in the German manufacturers product portfolio. It is a rather good looking luxury product but those slightly crazed engineers at AMG have decided that the GLA needs a bit more lunacy in its life. A new concept car making its debut at the LA Motor Show previews a future model.
This Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG Concept is a more hardcore performance derivative of the model it is based upon. Seen here for the first time wearing some questionable stickers, this car now has the same 2.0 litre turbocharged engine that the A45 AMG and CLA45 AMG posses. That means 335BHP and 332lb ft of torque. Mercedes say that the car will sprint from 0-62MPH in under 5 seconds. Garish spoiler and stickers aside, the GLA45 AMG sound like a rather interesting cocktail.
