Earlier in the day, we told you about Usher’s sting with the A45 AMG. He now takes centre stage along with the star of the show at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The momentous occasion marks a first for Mercedes Benz. In over 45 years of AMG, the star’s performance brand has designed a high-performance compact class vehicle, and the world is introduced to the most powerful series production four-cylinder engine.
Recording artist and multiple Grammy award winner Usher was in Germany yesterday to visit the AMG headquarters in Affalterbach. Usher is very much in love with his entourage of cars and this is evident when he was seen getting up close and personal while putting in final pieces of a M156 V8 engine which will be integrated within his SLS AMG. Mercedes Benz is a favorite brand for this star as his collection boasts of a CLS63 AMG, Mercedes Sprinter and a new SLS AMG.
After assembling his engine, Usher was invited to test drive the A45 AMG. The A45 AMG is powered by a 2.0L four cylinder AMG turbo charged engine one of the engines in this segment. It’s capable of producing 360 hp (265 kW) of power and a peak torque of 450 Nm.
