Feel free to describe what it looked like... (then we can moan when it’s not like your description!)

Would be interested to know if the pictures featured an aero kit, as they wouldn’t market it without one.

Personally I don’t see the A35 power anywhere near the old a45 power at best I see A35 having 330-340bhp max new A45 420bhp is certainly plauseable and IF there’s to be an A45s then maybe 450bhp. Just my opinion based on the targeted marketing of these cars

a senior salesman I spoke to at my local MB shop on Sunday says they were shown the A35 at a launch in Ibiza recently. they were told to leave there phones when they went into a building and were not allowed to close but it was there. also confirmed the speculation about an A45s
May 16 AMG A45 White. Just about every option going I think. Miles better than my Golf 7R (except maybe the cruise control)

I guess the difference between the a45 and a45s could be the electric booster motor.

That 450hp with a good dollop of low end torque from the booster motor would make for a very nippy little hot hatch. Couple that to the 4 matic+ Which can direct 100% power to rear and a well set up chassis (multi link rear suspension) would make for a very nice ride.
Let’s hope they get it right!

Front brake calipers are at the back of the wheel and not the front

The box will be a 9 speed, so must be a new one.
