As I left work tonight, I ended up being sat behind one of these beasts waiting to exit our business park….
… an A45 AMG.
Since it was already pitch black, and with the car being grey, that thing was pretty much in stealth mode.
But the rear wing on the top (which I believe is part of the ‘Aerodynamics Pack’?) – pretty much gave it away that this wasn’t a regular A-Class, even at night!
As exciting as this rare spot was, there was one aspect that stuck out for me though:
Those rear LED lights.
In all fairness, it was the brightest thing that I could see really, but the shape of them when they’re switched on were just plain odd!
And then it hit me –
– they look like hippo ears.
Obviously, there are bigger problems with the car than just rear lights;
- £38k for a mega hatch with 4 cylinders is the biggest one,
- and unfortunately, the whole rear of the car in general reminds me of the layout on a Citroen C5
But despite those though, I’m not trying to take anything away from the capabilities the A45 – if it wasn’t stationary I wouldn’t have been able to get that close to it for a start!
And before I forget, at least the A-Class doesn’t resemble one of these shameful things any more:
