To celebrate the launch of the A45 AMG, Mercedes-Benz will offer a limited ‘Edition 1’ model during the car’s first 12 months on the market.

The A45 AMG Edition 1 mirrors the CLA Edition 1 that will also be available in Europe for the model’s first 12 months. For the A45 AMG Edition 1, it’ll receive a Cirrus White exterior paint shade that’s further accented by matte graphite grey strips on the hood, roof, and sides. A standard aerodynamics package adds a rear wing, extra canards on the front bumper, and a larger front splitter.

Red accent paint can also be found on several exterior pieces including the mirror, front grille, brake calipers, and rear wing. The A45 AMG Edition 1 will come standard with black 19-inch wheels.

The black and red theme continues in the interior with AMG Performance Seats upholstered in ARTICO man-made leather and DINAMICA microfiber. No performance upgrades will be on the A45 AMG Edition 1, which means it’ll sport the same 2.0-liter turbo engine with 360 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque (do you really need more?)

Mercedes also released the first video for the A45 AMG, which you can watch below.
