It has just submitted in the official price lists and for the Mercedes CLA is already time for tuning. It ‘s still early to say whether the new compact of the three-pointed star will be built on the same platform with the Class A and Class B which will become a favorite for companies that specialize in “squeezing” the power and adding character to the cars of normal production. But in a few days, Mercedes CLA has already received the attention of two tuners. First we thought Brabus has always been a technical partner of Stuttgart in the preparation of versions that were even more aggressive, and now, a week away, here’s the answer to the “Piecha Design”, another company very closely connected to Mercedes.

CLA GT-R, this is the name given by the factory of the brand new Mercedes CLA Rottweil, in the general description it follows the style of tuning made in Germany, without upsetting the sinuous lines of the new “compact” in Stuttgart. The interventions to the car body are limited to the development of a decidedly sporty bodykit from the image, which includes a new front bumper with lower splitter and new thin moldings in aluminum color to the large side air intakes, two “skirts” that accompany the development of sills and at the rear, two thin spoilers (one at the rear, the second on top of the trunk) and a bumper that highlights two horizontal slits to the corner and a large diffuser with two pairs of exhaust pipes from 90 mm in diameter. The kit of thePiecha Design is completed with the adoption of a set of 10” alloy wheels with spoke design.
