    Spying: Mercedes-Benz A25 AMG

    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.

    While the HP on a FWD is pretty cool, I am not feeling the over all body/style. Will hold off as the test mule really does not look good. The pictures of the blue A25 look better of course than the mules, but still leave me lacking.

    Looking forward to see what the inside looks like.

    Too much power for a front wheel drive car, even with all wheel drive, I wonder how bad it will understeer. But I suppose people will by it because it will be low on weight and high on power and they will forget about the drive wheels.
