Watch how Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S drives at a speed of 275.14 km / h

A new video from the AutoTopNL team shows the capabilities of the high-performance 4-door CLA 45 S coupe on the German autobahn – the driver accelerates the car to 275 km / h.

Mercedes introduced the high-performance coupe AMG CLA 45 S last summer. Under the hood is a four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a capacity of 416 horsepower (500 Nm). The sedan can accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds with a maximum speed of 270 km / h declared by the manufacturer.

 The video shows that the CLA 45 S drives past slowly moving cars in the right lane without any problems, while it has no problems reaching speeds with three digits.

 However, acceleration begins to slow down when the car shifts to sixth gear, when the driver accelerates his “iron horse” to a maximum speed of 275.14 km / h. The CLA 45 S has an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that delivers power to all four wheels via the Mercedes 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

 As always, this video was shot on unlimited speed sections of the German autobahn, so do not be surprised that the driver does not comply with the city speed limit of standard 60 km / h. Excessive acceleration is dangerous, especially on roads where drivers are too careless about slowing down in the left lane. The video illustrates car acoustics well – the sound of the engine is certainly not as striking as that of a powerful V8 engine, but it can still be impressive, given the fact that most four-cylinder engines do not sound very mediocre.
