After Brabus the next German tuner to come up with an upgrade kit for the new Mercedes A Class is VATH. Their creation V25 is based on the A250 model, and is mostly about the technicalities than visuals. It does pack a serious punch this car.
The 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine in the A250 is rated at 210hp standard, but when VATH is through with it, you have access to 250hp and nearly 400Nm of torque. It is no A45 AMG, but still, the V25 goes from o to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds, and keeps going all the way to 250 km/h.
The main part of the V25 engine tuning program is a new exhaust system featuring 270 EVO downpipe system with stainless steel 200 cell tri-metal catalyst, and new rear silencers. Apart from the power, it also gives the little family hatchback a sporty noise.
AS for the visual features, VATH lowers the car by 30mm and fits it with new 19-inch wheels. These elements also contribute to the car’s performance, and so does the aero kit consisting of a carbon spoiler lip and side skirts. They also offer some interior upgrades such as sport steering wheel, as well as wood or carbon trim package.
