Even though the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG has been around for a while now, the nutty tuning specialists from Bottrop were busy squeezing ginormous amounts of power and torque from the V8s and V12s found in its bigger brothers.
Rest assured though, because both the A 45 AMG and the CLA 45 AMG are now available with a Stage One power kit from Brabus, which increases the base 360 hp and 450 Nm (332 lb ft) of torque to a nice and round 400 hp and 500 Nm (369 lb ft) of torque.

There are no mentions of the new 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration figures, but we're guessing they are now much closer to the four second threshold than before.

Plus, that isn't even the most important matter, as the PowerXtra ECU tuning solution just transformed the A 45 AMG above in the Brabus car with the highest horsepower per liter ever. No less than 200 hp per liter were only found in racing cars and the limited production Mitsubishi Lancer EVO FQ400 until a couple of years ago, so this is kind of a big deal for some people.
