VÄTH has chosen the Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG for their new project. The experts have basically uprated the engine of the Mercedes and given it some new tweaks regarding aerodynamics and exterior. And everything has been done for the sake of faster speed, more qualitative ride and better driving dynamics. Here are the details:
Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG's 1,991 cm³engine produces 360 HP (265 kW) as a standard. After the tuning it can proudly show-off with 395 HP (290 kW) of power and 485 Nm (358 lb-ft) of torque. The top speed has been raised to 280 kmph (174 mph).
So far so good, but if you are not satisfied with these numbers, then you should also know that the tuning company is offering power uprating kit called V45RS. If you buy it, then your GLA will generate no less than 446 HP (328 kW) of power and 539 Nm (398 lb-ft) of maximum torque.
Exhaust and More
Additional power is delivered by the VA stainless steel down pipe device 270 EVO with 200 cells trimetal cat as well as the VA stainless steel made valve controlled axle back exhaust system. Furthermore, the GLA 45 AMG also received lowering by 30 mm thanks to the addition of sportive lowering springs.
The brakes were optimized with steel flex tubes, SRF racing brake fluid and the obligatory vehicle type. Of course, more the power better the wheels. Precisely, the standard ones were substituted with 20-inch VÄTH black, high gloss alloys.
VÄTH also offers a gearbox oil cooler set for automatic gearboxes, while for the exterior the tuners have prepared carbon made front spoiler lip, rear diffusor and trunk spoiler lip. For the cabin, there is optionally available sports steering wheel in leather design, aluminum pedals, and set of black velvet foot mats with silver colored VÄTH logo.
In other words, this is a very nice project with simple modifications, but very effective.
