B-Class AMG Shows Variant-Specific Details

Emmanuel P October 3, 2011

Already hinted at and widely expecteed, the B-Class AMG has finally been seen in the wild.  As befits, and typical of, an AMG high performance variant, the B-Class AMG features a revised snout with bigger intakes plus a rear fascia with twin exhausts. Being an AMG model, these exterior revisions are definitely not for display only as the rumor is that this hot B-Class will be powered by a 2-liter turbocharged four with an output between 320 and 360 horsepower. As with most other high performance models in the market today, a dual-clutch transmission will transfer power to the driven wheels. All-wheel drive is a very real possibility.

We can also expect revised suspension settings that will favor handling, as well as uprated brakes. AMG-specific wheel and tire combos will add a unique look as well as sharper cornering. With these modifications, the B-Class should become a worthy competitor to the Audi RS3.
