The Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG
will make its official, in-the-flesh debut at this year’s New York Auto Show, but the car is also being teased in a new video game called Driveclub
, set to launch for the new Sony PS4 later this year.Driveclub
is a new racing game developed specifically for the PS4 by Evolution Studios, which promises it will deliver a visceral feel with highly-connected gameplay. Unlike other racing sims,
this one is meant to be played in real clubs, encouraging cooperative gameplay with teammates.
The real CLA45 AMG
promises to deliver a visceral driving experience as well, generating an impressive 360 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
That makes the AMG-developed unit the most powerful four-cylinder engine in series production today, and explains why the CLA45 AMG
will come with standard 4Matic all-wheel drive.
The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG
, which uses the same engine and drivetrain, will also appear in Driveclub
. Coincidentally, the A45 AMG will make its official debut in March as well, at the Geneva Motor Show.
We’ll bring you coverage of the A45 AMG reveal from Geneva
, as well as coverage of the CLA45 AMG introduction from New York
. Expect to see the Sony PS4 and Driveclub
in stores ahead of the 2013 holiday season.
