AMG secretly developing a hot A-Klasse

We've written through time about the plans of AMG to build a mean version for the future generation of the A-Klasse, which is about to suffer a major transformation in design, technology and market positioning. In an interview to Autocar, Olla Kaellenius, the AMG boss, revealed that the future A 25 AMG model, because this is the designation of the new baby hot-hatch from Affalterbach, will be previewed in April next year, in the form of an exciting concept expected to make its appearance on the stage of the Shanghai Auto Show, whereas the serial production car will be premiered in mid-2012. Engineers are currently working in alliance with the specialized Swiss company Hyprex to build a highly-turbocharged 2.0 liters 4-cylinder in-line powerplant, that could deliver a peak output of 320 hp. According to Kaellenius, this impressive amount of power will be transmitted to all 4 wheels of the car with the help of an intelligent, carefully-trimmed for top performance, AWD system. Moreover, he added that there will be an AMG variant for the upcoming generation B-Klasse as well, that could also hit US showrooms.
