The Most Compact Mercedes for $90,000: It Looks Like Brabus Miscalculated

It is sometimes very difficult to understand Brabus’ actions. So, the Mercedes-AMG A35, the price tag for which soared to almost $90,000 after full upgrade, is the latest product of the company.

To be precise, its cost reached €79,500, which is equivalent to $88,400. However, it is worth noting in advance that paying double the cost for this car, the lucky owner will still not have higher performance than the owners of usual AMG A45 and A45S.

Brabus’s B35S produces 365 hp and 460 Nm, which are provided by the PowerXtra+ kit. Additional 59 hp and 60 Nm produced by a 2.0-liter turbo engine allow the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds faster than the standard production variant.

Now let's move on to the most interesting part: it is possible to buy an A45 for just $62,462 that will have a power output of 387 hp and 480 Nm or an A45S for $68,675, which develops 421 hp and 500 Nm. A 0-100 km/h time of the latter, by the way, is only 3.9 seconds. What Brabus expects to win in such situation is not yet clear.

Let's skip the economic feasibility of the acquisition and take a look at what are other differences between this Brabus model and the usual AMG. In addition to increased power, the B35S comes with a cool body kit, darkened chrome plated elements, 19-inch wheels and a sporty exhaust system. It has also got special side steps, pedals and floor mats. Perhaps, that is the lot.
