2013 Frankfurt: Mercedes-Benz brings the CLA 45 AMG Racing Series Concept

Article by Christian A., on September 12, 2013

The new concept from Mercedes-Benz -- the CLA 45 AMG Racing Series Concept – was displayed at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). This new concept is believed to be a preview for another customer sport racing car built by Mercedes-AMG. The CLA 45 AMG Racing Series is aimed at this very popular race series that features 2.0-litre turbocharged cars.

It may even reach international shores if there’s sufficient demand. Notably, the engine output and power transmission may vary. It’s possible that it may feature permanent all-wheel drive or purely front-wheel drive just like in the standard version. The CLA’s racing version will be getting a special suspension as well as a wider track at the front and rear.

It also permits several adjustments for an individual racetrack setup. Other aspects that can be adjusted are the suspension level, spring rate and damper characteristics similar to the track and camber at the front and rear axles. In addition, the racing car comes with an AMG high-performance braking system with ventilated discs all-round and is fitted with an anti-lock system.

It also comes with a new body kit, which includes a new front and rear apron, flared wings and side sill panels. Furthermore, it gets an imposing width due to its treadless racing tires. The interior comes with a roll-over cage built from high-strength steel, Recaro sport bucket seats and integrated fire extinguishing system. Vehicle control is perfect due to its racing steering wheel with shift paddles for gearshifts.
