B&B Automobiltechnik has unveiled their new tuning program for the Mercedes CLA 45 AMG. For obvious reasons, I like it, but let’s talk a bit about it. Essentially a three stage performance program, the stage one kit costs €1,298 and includes an optimized ECU which enables the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to develop 400 PS (294 kW) and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque.

The stage two package costs €3,950 , for which you will get a new air intake, a downpipe and an optimized ECU; also, let’s not forget the 425 PS (312 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque. Last, but not least, the €6,950 stage three package includes all the aforementioned components as well as a new turbocharger. The result is a 450 PS (331 kW) and 580 Nm (428 lb-ft) of torque beast, that will do 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 296 km/h (184 mph).

Customers may also opt out for a coilover suspension, a high-efficiency oil cooling system and sport spring that reduce the ride height 30 mm at the front / 25 mm at the rear. The Mercedes also features a high-performance braking system and 20-inch alloys.
