Mercedes-AMG CLA45 is already known for its searing performance, but German tuner Loewenstein Manufaktur has raised it to another level. When the car leaves the tuner’s premises, it is known as the Loewenstein Saphir LM-45 410 Turbo (which is a mouthful). With a piggyback ECU installed, this vehicle’s stock output of 360bhp and 450Nm is raised to 410bhp and 530Nm.

If desired, these figures can be bumped up to 425bhp and 540Nm when a modified downpipe, sport air filter and sport catalytic converter are specified. Indicating the automobile’s greater athleticism is its carbon fibre widebody kit, which increases the front and rear widths by 40mm and 80mm respectively. There are milled exhaust tips, too. Helping the Saphir LM-45 410 Turbo put the power down are its large tyres – 245/35 R20 in front and 285/30 R20 for the rear.
