Home / Social media / Cars / The new Limited Edition A 45 S 4MATIC+ in Green Hell Magno paint is a R300k option.


The latest incarnation of the world’s most powerful hot hatch has been around for about a year or so now, and it can be had with an amazing amount of factory options. As it is, the A 45 S 4MATIC+ has a price tag that matches the power output, it’s the most expensive of its kind too. That hasn’t stopped fanatics from buying them though, an afternoon drive through Sandton will reveal a decent amount of them on the roads. The car is a complete package though, there’s really nothing left wanting if you tick the right boxes on the options list. The thing is, even if you take all the options, your A45 AMG will look just like someone else’s A45 AMG unless they’ve taken the time to do some aftermarket mods to make the car stand out a bit more. There is a new package available for buyers of the German hot hatch, the chaps in charge at Mercedes-AMG have put together a bunch of their preferred options along with an exclusive paint colour and wheels to essentially make a limited edition package that will launch in April and will be available until the end of 2024. So it’s a limited edition but without a cap on the numbers, but with the cars being in such a garish look-at-me paint, those numbers may end up limiting themselves. If we snagged the right 7 numbers on a lotto ticket, we’d be one of those spending silly money on a standout colour, that’s how we roll. We also love that there’s no series name for what you see here, it’s simply called The A45 Limited Edition. That AMG Green Hell Magno paint just works, although we’re not too sure about the yellow highlights and that massive A45 S on the doors, and the wheels could most definitely be better. In fact, the regular wheel option is a hard wheel to beat. Three combined equipment packages make up the Limited Edition A45 AMG S, and when you add them all up separately they cost silly money, but combined in this special package the whole shebang will see buyers adding in an extra €14,280.00. Of course, that looks like an affable number, but when you convert that to our wrecked Rand, it’s a hefty sum of over R290,000.

That AMG Green Hell Magno does work well on the hatchback, we’re fans. It’s not a new colour, but it is the first time that it can be optioned for the A-series range-topper. To make the thing stand out even more, there’s been the addition of foiling with the AMG logo and the oversized “A 45 S” lettering on the doors as well as the AMG crest on the bonnet. The 19-inch AMG forged wheels with a seven-twin-spoke design are in matt black with yellow highlights, and these wheels can only be had with the Limited Edition package. Good thing coz they’re miff. To match the wheels, the brake calipers are gloss black with white AMG logos. Other details include an exclusive fuel cap with the AMG logo, and also the light projector that shines the AMG coat of arms onto the floor when you open the doors. The Limited Edition incorporates the AMG Night Package that sees design elements in black and high-gloss black on the front splitter, the exterior mirror housings, and the beltlines, along with dark-tinted windows. The AMG Night Package II is also added in, this one features darkened struts on the radiator trim as well as the black chrome typography on the front fenders and tailgate, the Mercedes star, exclusive door handles and the Mercedes stars in the wheel hub caps. There’s also the AMG Aerodynamics Package that includes special add-on parts and a fixed AMG rear wing. The interior is also distinctively designed with AMG performance seats covered in black with a combination of ARTICO man-made leather and MICROCUT microfibre with yellow stitching in the seats, door panels and instrument panel. There is also an A45 S logo embroidered into the front headrests. The AMG performance steering wheel is also found in a leather/MICROCUT microfibre with yellow stitching and aluminium trim elements with the recognisable AMG pattern and yellow AMG lettering. The AMG door sills wear an AMG pattern design in black and illuminate the AMG logo in yellow. The last bit is the AMG floor 45 S lettering and more yellow stitching. The turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder powerplant remains untouched, but there’s not too much need seeing as it's rated at a whopping 310 kW and it can get the A45 S to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 270 km/h.

Take a look at the YouTube video, albeit a Short, that gives a very little bit of insight into the limited edition AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+ that has cleverly been called the... Limited Edition. The car features a special combination of optional extras along with a special paint to create what you see here, and it comes at a rather big price: The Mercedes-AMG A 45 S Limited Edition #Shorts | Mercedes-AMG
