Mercedes A45 AMG priced from AU$74,900?

Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG

Hey, would you believe this, a carrier pigeon has just flown through a window and left us a message. No, not that kind of message a real message, you know, with proper information and stuff. It concerns what is sure to be the first step into AMG ownership for most buyers, the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG.

Anyway, here’s what the message said, take particular note of the last line:

So, in real world terms a vanilla A45 AMG, if you can call it that, should be a smidge into the 80K price range driveaway. That is quite a lot for a small hatchback no doubt, but for an AMG product, with BMW 1M performance, it’s a bit of a bargain.
