VÄTH has created an upgrade program for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class based on the A250 model. They've kept the standard 2.0-liter gasoline engine but instead of 211 HP (155 kW) it now churns 245 HP (180 kW) while torque has gone up from 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) to 390 Nm (287 lb-ft). The hot hatchback needs 5.9 seconds from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) and can reach a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
Some of the modifications include a 270 EVO downpipe system with stainless steel 200 cell tri-metal catalyst, along with a rear silencer also made from stainless steel. The lowering springs bring the car closer to the ground by 30mm, and stock wheels are replaced by 19-inch rims covered by 235/35 ZR19 front and 255/30 ZR19 rear tires.
VÄTH is also offering a carbon fiber front spoiler lip, brake optimization with stainless steel brake lines and Castrol SRF racing brake fluid, a sports steering wheel, as well as several wood and carbon applications inside the cabin.
