Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) showed Driveclub -- a brand new racing franchise that Evolution Studios exclusively created for Playstation 4. The franchise was recently presented in New York. This pioneering game includes several outstanding Mercedes-Benz cars such as the new CLA 45 AMG and the new A 45 AMG.
These top-performing vehicles will have their global debut in March 2013. Driveclub and the new Playstation 4 console will have their launch during the holiday season. SCEI’s next generation computer entertainment system – the Playstation 4 – offers potent graphics and speed, intelligent personalization, deeply integrated social capabilities, and ground-breaking second-screen features.
As a result, gameplay becomes incredibly rich and immersive. Driveclub is the ideal fit for the next-gen PlayStation gamers. Driveclub, a networked game to be played in real clubs, urges players to group together and to collaborate as well as race against each other as they feel the excitement of getting behind the wheel of the world’s best cars on the best roads.
The audiovisual quality of the cars and the tracks is true to life and provides an experience of almost being on the driver’s seat with a great view from the cockpit. The Driveclub will soon have other vehicles aside from the CLA 45 AMG and the A 45 AMG.
The A 45 AMG compact car from Mercedes-Benz marked the first time the brand is offering a vehicle with high performance for this particular segment. The A 45 AMG was initially presented during the auto show in Geneva held in March 2013.
Mercedes-Benz also has the CLA which is the AMG version of the four-door coupe and was premiered on the auto show in New York. The A 45 AMG has a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine, making it one of the most powerful engine types in production worldwide.
The engine can reach maximum power of 265 kilowatts or about 360 horsepower with a 450 newton-meter maximum torque. The power density of the engine cannot be ignored as well since it can reach as high as 133 kilowatts or 181 horsepower, exceeding even the power of many super sports cars.
In addition to the excellent performance, the engine is also very efficient as it is able to meet EU6 emissions standard. Both the A 45 AMG and the coupe version, the CLA 45 AMG, come equipped with the standard 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system.
