Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team has won the 2015 Formula 1 World Championship in some style. To celebrate the two wins (constructor’s and driver’s championship), Mercedes-AMG has announced a new special edition – Mercedes-AMG A45 PETRONAS 2015 World Champion Edition.
Finished in the same color of petrol green, black and silver seen on board the Mercedes F1 racing car, new Mercedes-AMG A45 features larger front splitter, rear mounted roof spolier, and bespoke flics.
Apart from this, the new special edition gets 19 inch titanium grey alloys in new design with petrol green rim flange. The base color of the car can be chosen from three options – polar silver metallic, designo mountain grey magno, and mountain grey metallic.
Other features on board include AMG DYNAMIC Plus Package, AMG Exclusive Package, Night Package, electrically adjustable AMG Performance seats in leather/DINAMICA, performance steering wheel stitched with petrol green stitching, which is also seen on the upholstery and dashboard.

Mated to a 7 speed dual clutch autobox with quick shift tech and 4MATIC all wheel drive system, 0-100 kmph is achieved in just 4.2 seconds.
