Geneva Motor Show: Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sport
Mercedes-Benz Sport has just surprised the visitors of Geneva Motor Show with the revealing of the sport version of the A 180 model in polar silver with detachable body parts in Jupiter red. This demonstrates how an A-Class can be sportily upgraded using Genuine Accessories and as a result this Mercedes-Benz model has light-catching edges and taut surfaces that sportiness and reinforce the car's confident appearance.
The designers of this A 180 have chosen this striking colour for the front apron spoiler lip, the roof spoiler and the rear apron trim in diffusor look. The sporty appearance is additionally underscored by a decorative sticker kit in chequered flag design with a colour gradient and fine lines. The final look is achieved by the addition of racing numbers and a tinted sun protection strip with Mercedes-Benz Sport lettering.
This model shown in Geneva comes to offer a sense of the personalization possibilities. Some of them include: decorative sticker kits and installation kits for a two-pipe rear silencer, sports suspension and brakes with perforated brake discs and red callipers on the front wheels.
In addition, to the exhibited unit is included a "Night" styling package, front and rear trim, the diamond radiator grille, illuminated door sills with the "Sport" logo, sports steering wheel, sports pedals and 18-inch (45.72 cm) two-tone light alloy wheels in black and high-sheen.
The design here is based on high quality criteria, while the development - on experience and observation of the basic vehicle and the original vehicle computer data. This delivers more reliability, durability and function of the parts included in the vehicle.
In addition, the aerodynamic parts have been tested in wind tunnels and test drives such as high-speed circuits. What is more, thanks to the intelligent "add-on principle" for detachable body parts, no existing parts have to be removed or exchanged.
