The Cla45 Amg Goes Racing

We are still around a week away from the opening of the Frankfurt Motor Show, and already the debuts are starting to pop up. In addition to the Audi Sport Quattro Concept we saw earlier today, Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will be showing off the new ‘CLA45 AMG Racing Series’.

The car is of course based on the road-going CLA45 AMG, which is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an AWD drivetrain.

Although AMG has yet to release any official specs on the car, it certainly appears to be designed for genuine competition use rather than just looking pretty on a show stand – perhaps a one-make championship?

In addition to the functional aerodynamic modifications on the exterior, the cockpit of the CLA45 AMG Racing Series also looks like it’s ready for action.

We should certainly know more about the car when the Frankfurt show kicks off next week, but if first impressions are anything to go by, the CLA45 AMG Racing Series looks pretty exciting!

What do you think?
