German tuner SCHMIDT Revolution has picked a Mercedes CLA 45 AMG to show off their new Gambit wheel design on in a way that would attract the most attention. That’s the thing about the CLA. The car seems to have a good media presence and the tuners love it a great deal as well, but you don’t see many that of them out in the real world.

In any case, the Mercedes CLA 45 AMG has as always responded well to modifications which on this particular one include a set of SCHMIDT Revolution 19 inch Gambit rims in black wrapped with 225/35R19 tires up front and 235/35R19 tires out back. The concave rims are complemented with red brake calipers, 25mm lowered suspension thanks to H&R springs, side stripes, OEM rear wing, and a chip tuning kit that boosts the output of the AMG four-cylinder turbo engine to 400 horsepower.

It is all well and good, but Mercedes CLA 45 AMG has the same problem as its hatchback brother, the A45, and that is the cost of the thing relative to the size and prestige of the car. Those who want big power often like big size to go with it and so they find the 45’s efficiently compact package just does not appeal to them. That is why you don’t see many of these cars around.
