Mercedes-Benz tuning specialist Carlsson will be revealing its latest program to suit the current A-Class at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
For the body Carlsson offers an aero package comprising of a front spoiler with air inlets, sculpted side skirts, a larger roof spoiler and rear bumper apron with integrated diffuser and twin apertures to accommodate new quadruple tailpipes. A separate apron for cars fitted with the AMG body kit includes air outlet grilles.
Sport springs drop the A-Class by 35 mm, with an adjustable coilover option available for those with deeper pockets, while the factory wheels can be replaced with Carlsson’s 1/10 items in diamteters ranging from 18 to 20 inches.
Inside, Carlsson can supply anything from aluminum door pins and pedal covers or floor mats to a completely bespoke interior using such materials as leather, wood and carbon fibre.
The company also offers performance upgrades to suit all four-cylinder petrol-engined cars with its C-Tronic CB Plug & Drive module. Once plugged into the car’s ECU output from the A 250 jumps from 157 kW (211 hp) and 350 Nm of torque to 189 kW (253 hp) and 420 Nm, while the A 200 goes from 116 kW (156 hp) and 250 Nm to 139 kW (187 hp) and 300 Nm.
