Mercedes A45 AMG by Posaidon 1

Μέχρι στιγμής, ότι βελτιωτικό πακέτο έχουμε δει για την A45 AMG, όπως αυτό της Oakley Design ή αυτό της Revozport, εστιάζει στο αισθητικό κομμάτι και αφήνει τα μηχανικά μέρη ανέγγιχτα. Ακριβώς το αντίθετο όμως συμβαίνει στην πρόταση της Poseidon.

Ο βελτιωτικός οίκος, παρουσίασε το νέο του πρόγραμμα για τις A45, CLA45 και GLA45 AMG. Να θυμίσουμε πως σε εργοστασιακή μορφή, ο δίλιτρος, τετρακύλινδρος turbo κινητήρας, αποδίδει 360 ίππους στις 6.000 σ.α.λ. και 450 Nm ροπή μεταξύ 2.250 και 5.000 σ.α.λ. Για την Posaidon όμως δεν ήταν αρκετά. Το πρώτο στάδιο, αυξάνει την απόδοση στα 385 άλογα και τη ροπή στα 485 Nm. Το επόμενο στάδιο, σπάει το φράγμα των 400 ίππων και προσφέρει 405 άλογα και 490 Nm ροπής ενώ το κορυφαίο, μέχρι στιγμής, στάδιο, επιτρέπει στον κινητήρα να παράγει 445 ίππους και 535 Nm ροπής.

Το παράδοξο στην όλη υπόθεση είναι πως παρότι η Posaidon προσφέρει αυτά τα πακέτα, συνιστά στους πελάτες της να αρκεστούν στο πρώτο στάδιο αφού οι “A/CLA/GLA 45 AMG δεν είναι σχεδιασμένες για ροπές άνω των 500 Nm”.

POSAIDON: A/CLA/GLA45 AMG Performance boosts through the programming

of the Electronic Control Unit

With the A45 AMG that was launched last summer, Mercedes Benz currently

has a hot potato on the fire of the sportive compact car category. After all, A45

AMG comes along already in the standard production status with a 360 horse

power / 450 Nm-strong 2.0 liter, four-cylinder turbo and four-wheel drive and

gave competitors (BMW M135i, Audi S3 or VW Golf R) a good scare in direct


The experts of POSAIDON – specialists in the performance optimization

of Mercedes Benz vehicles – attest to a yet idle potential also in the A45

AMG racer that they are currently fathoming using self-developed software

optimization systems. For the M133DE20AL engine of A45 AMG, POSAIDON

offers performance optimization in three stages: Performance and torque is

elevated to 385 horse power / 485 Nm in the “small” 1st

of stage 2 unfurls 405 horse power / 490 Nm while the A45 AMG as optimized

by POSAIDON unleashes good 445 horse power and 535 Nm in the strongest

upgrade stage. The prices for POSAIDON optimization begin from EUR 1,500

(only Vmax deactivation).

As opposed to several competitors, POSAIDON realizes performance and

torque boost not through a “tuning box“ but through programming performed

directly on the original Electronic Control Unit (ECU). In addition to this,

POSAIDON thus achieves the deactivation of the electronic Vmax limitation in

such a way that the reinforced A45 AMG is also able to fully convert its power

into propulsion: In the strongest upgrade phase, the four-wheel drive (on the

condition that it has the adequate tire clearance) chips away at the 300-k.p.h.

sonic barrier.

Of course, POSAIDON offers all the performance kits described here for the

A45 AMG also for the platform brothers CLA45 AMG and GLA45 AMG.

POSAIDON technicians consider it a duty to lift the warning finger: In favor

of optimal stability and durability, they are recommending just the “small”

performance boost of 385 horse power and 485 Nm in combination with the

deactivation of the Vmax blockade because different drive parts of the A/CLA/

GLA45 AMG brothers are not designed for torques beyond 500 Nm. At the

moment there is a technical inspection (TÜV) expertise underway for this base

performance optimization.

As from the next summer, POSAIDON will be offering a complete exhaust

system made of high grade stainless steel as from the turbo charger version

for A45 AMG, CLA45 AMG and GLA45 AMG – optionally with or without valve

control and including TÜV licensing

stage, the datasheet

Of course POSAIDON’s performance upgrade will be offered again, not only for

the AMG top models: Several performance boosts will be offered also for the

“casual” M270 4-cylinder turbo models of the A, CLA ad GLA category.
