360-hp from a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbo? How is that even possible you ask. Well, its all the work of AMG engineers and the obsession with precision AMG DNA.

Running 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, we think the CLA45 AMG will definitely give the BMW 1 Series M Coupe something to worry about.

“With the CLA45 AMG, Mercedes-AMG is launching a unique and highly desirable automobile with all the typical DNA of AMG,” said Ola K√§llenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG . “A high-tech package that includes the most powerful series-production four-cylinder engine in the world as well as performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive, it embodies Driving Performance at its best.”

Sales of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG will start in July 2013.
