The usual recipe for an AMG vehicle is to take one Mercedes-Benz vehicle, add gobs of horsepower via turbocharging, tune the suspension and brakes, add new body bits and wheels, and then do a smoky burnout out of the factory. However, the rumored A-Class AMG model will be changing the recipe a bit because it's a front-wheel drive model.
Some new spy shots of an AMG A-Class mule running around AMG's HQ in Germany came out and gives us a good look of what to expect of this hot hatch.
The A25 AMG as its rumored to be called will sport new bumpers and more aggressive side skirts. Up front, a new grill and larger air-intakes to help cool the upgraded brakes will come.
Under the hood will be a 2.0L turbocharged four-banger producing 350 HP going through a seven speed dual-clutch gearbox to all four wheels.
The A25 AMG will debut sometime later this year.
