    • Official: Here it is, the new all wheel drive turbocharged 2014 C117 CLA45 AMG leaked early - Pictures and specs

      Here it is, the new AMG pocket rocket the 2014 CLA45 AMG. This will now be the entry level AMG model in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. All details have previously been leaked so you should know it has the world's most powerful production four-cylinder motor with its 360 horsepower M133 turbocharged and direct injected 2.0 liter. That horsepower comes thanks to 26 psi of boost in stock form from the turbocharger so it will be interesting to see how much more tuners can squeeze out.

      This power is all routed to an all wheel drive system with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. A turbo, dual clutch, all wheel drive Mercedes with an entry level price point. Say hello to what will be the most popular AMG tuning platform going forward.

      Official pictures leaked before when the official debut was supposed to take place 7 days from now at the 2013 New York Auto show are below:

        Like the performance and price. I do not like the looks at all.

        Same here. Not sure what it is that I am liking - cant pinpoint it.

        The interior is interesting; a bit over the top, but it fits. Plus - I like orange. The only thing I really could do without is the ridiculous shift knob.

        Cool car.

        I like it - a baby CLS. Only, from the angle of one of those photos, it reminds me of a BMW 135i. Hrmph.

        But 26psi stock!?!? Good Gawd!

        Same here. I think it's an awesome car inside, out, under the hood, everything.

        Not a fan of how the hood looks like a lid sitting on top of the front of the car. Perhaps its just the picture. Also, I concur with the 135i comment. I see it in the side profile shot only though. I think its the angle of the hood-windshield-roof that does it. It is enough different that it doesn't matter to me.

        Any idea on release date? I'm thinking this would be a perfect next car for my mother, she has a c300 4matic right now that's basically fully loaded. I feel like this would be a step up. Right around the same price for both...

        Looks great to me.

        I bet it is one of those designs that translates even better in person.
