Cobra Sport Unleash the Potential of the Mercedes-AMG A 45
Posted by CobraSportExhausts Admin
The latest vehicle to pass through the Cobra Sport exhaust development process is the stunning Mercedes-AMG A 45. Concentrating on the restrictive front end, Cobra Sport have created a high flow de-cat downpipe in 3.5" (88.9mm) pipework for optimum gas flow.
Power testing with the Cobra Sport downpipe fitted revealed a +5bhp increase in power over standard, the downpipe has however been designed for fitment in conjunction with an engine remap. With the software applied, the development car returned a huge increase in power and torque completely changing the power dynamics of the car.
Max power increased by a +60bhp to 425bhp. Torque increased by a colossal +137 lb-ft up to a staggering 504 lb-ft at 3160rpm, the power increases create a dramatic change in driver experience after the remap was applied.
Both Cobra Sport's Technical and R&D teams were involved in the planning and preparation that went into designing the new downpipe. Cobra Sport have been able to reduce the weight of the part by 54% with the downpipe weighing in at just 3.45kg.
Manufactured from aircraft grade 304 Stainless Steel, advanced manufacturing techniques and superior TIG welding procedures produce a superlative finish.
Matt Thomas, Sales Manager at Cobra Sport says “The upgraded sporty tone created by the Cobra Sport downpipe matched with an ultra aggressive gear change sound put the already impressive AMG A 45 on a whole new level. The incredible power increases obtained from the stage 2 re-map speak for themselves, all made possible by the exhaust technology in the Cobra Sport downpipe."
