German tuner works its magic on the baby four-door coupe.
Dubbed the V25, Vath has unveiled its latest aftermarket program based on the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. By remapping the ECU, fitting a custom sports exhaust including downpipes and a racing air filter, the CLA has been boosted from 211 and 258 lb-ft of torque to 261 hp and 310 lb-ft. For 4,950 Euros, CLA owners will be able to sprint from 0-62 mph in 5.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 155mph. Alternatively, the German tuner can simply optimize the CLA's ECU to generate 242 hp and 288 lb-ft for a more affordable price of 940 Euros.
The stainless-steel exhaust can also be bought for a standalone price of 1,250 Euros, while Vath offers other chassis upgrades in the form of an adjustable coilover suspension (3,500 Euros) that lowers the CLA from 20 to 65 mm, as well as a 30mm lowered sport suspension for 450 Euros, optimized brakes (460 Euros), 20-inch three-piece forged alloys (3,000 Euros including tires), carbon-fiber front lip spoiler (1,400 Euros) and rear tail lip spoiler (333 Euros). Inside, the cabin can be fitted with a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel (1,300 Euros), a 300 km/h speedometer (1,500 Euros) and silver embossed black velvet floor mats (220 Euros).
